I can't say yay or nay on another gabber1 release, that's up to Julian,
but... Gabber2 is under development.  I'm currently in the midst of
prototyping it, in python, in JS CVS.  People are welcome to play with
it, but it's probably a pain to get going because you have to compile
the JabberOO/Judo python binding.  Once the prototype is to a solid
point we'll move it into C++ again, probably =)
