Jabber, Inc. has announced the general availability of the 5.2 release of the Jabber Extensible Communications Platform (Jabber XCP). The new version features:

A Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)/SIP for Instant Messaging and Presence Leveraging Extensions (SIMPLE) Gateway delivered on a new code base providing for transparent federation with SIP/SIMPLE-based messaging systems such as IBM Lotus Sametime, Microsoft Live Communications Server, and the AOL Instant Messenger service. A cornerstone of the company's multi-protocol approach to real-time messaging, the new SIP/SIMPLE implementation is now available on the Microsoft Windows Server platform in addition to Solaris and Linux; Sun Solaris 10 support, Jabber XCP is also available for the Solaris 9, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 and 4.0, and Microsoft Windows Server 2000 and 2003 platforms; InfoBroker enhancements designed to optimize the efficiency and scalability of Jabber XCP's publish-and-subscribe module; increased security integrity of Jabber XCP through obscured password storage in encrypted files; Stanza optimization, through the implementation of XMPP Extension Protocol 0033 (XEP-0033), which provides a method for both clients and servers to send a single stanza and have it delivered to multiple recipients; and auto-include Special Interest Groups (SIGs)/Schemas, designed to simplify the job of developers by enabling new code to run on Jabber XCP without editing configuration files.
