The XIFF library is being updated to use Flash sockets. You can read a
recent blog entry about this at:


<psuedo-rant>Frankly, I'm not sure what Sander is so up in arms about in
his article. People need stuff to "just work" and Flash is incredibly
wide-spread. Having a non-XMPP protocol tweak for Flash clients is a
very reasonable workaround (what we do in Wildfire). It's a couple of
lines of code and doesn't affect other XMPP traffic. The alternative is
that Flash developers would simply not use XMPP at all. Aren't there
better issues to get passionate about? Frankly, I don't mind at all that
Wildfire is on the "black list". :)</psuedo-rant>
