That’s what xmpp.net is now for: helping us make these policy decisions. :)

So far, two tests have shown a server supported SSLv3 but not TLS 1.0,
both for c2s to palemoon.net:


However, considering the cipher list did not finish I would assume the sever
started IP banning xmpp.net, leading to inaccurate results.

So from the directory list, even the servers running ejabberd 2.1.2 (released
3.5 years ago) and Openfire 3.64 (released 4.5 years ago) support TLS 1.0.

How many clients don't support TLS 1.0 I do not (yet) have data of, though.
