Those XEPs are final now. You can look at them using IE here (if you
have a Windows machine):
Multiple clarifications and restructuring without changes to protocol
itself; changed title to BOSH; added section that fully explores the
technique underlying the protocol; separated XMPP-specific features into
new XEP-0206; added optional new Script Syntax and session pauses; added
from and ver attributes; added hold attribute to session creation
response; clarified polling too-frequently error; recommended clients
use HTTP Pipelining.
Initial version (extracted from XEP-0124 version 0.15); depricated
non-SASL authentication and authid attribute; multiple clarifications
and restructuring without changes to protocol itself; added optional
version and restart attributes
Peter, XEP-0124 is already in the CVS and XEP-0206 can be downloaded
from the URL above.
I'm going to start work on BOAH now. It's similar to BOSH but based on
the Comet technique.
> In the interests of making XEP-0124 into an IETF standard, I've split
> it into two documents. XEP-0124 is now a generic XML streaming
> protocol (renamed to "BOSH"), while the proto-XEP (nominally called
> XEP-0206 - XMPP over BOSH) includes a couple of XMPP-specific
> extensions and a clarification of the best practices.
> These documents are complete rewrites, but almost all the changes were
> for clarity (XEP-0124 wasn't a nice document). The few changes are
> 100% backward compatible, with the possible exception of the
> xmpp:restart attribute which enables SASL auth (which was not
> correctly supported properly under the previous version of the protocol).
