@JoergSorge @thomas @philipwhite @sir Seriously, I would like the idea of having a new-future-proof XMPP v2.0, that cleans up old that legacy stuff and adds the features you need. (less fractured)

@rugk @JoergSorge

@thomas What exactly is not nice about XML? As I said, I've heard this objection, but I want to understand it.

I don't think extensibility is a problem at all. Certainly building a client for XMPP with extensions is as easy as building a client for a protocol with those extensions builtin. Have this "mess" of extensions means we have a lot of under-featured clients + a few fully compliant ones instead of just a few reference clients like Matrix has.
