Hi all,

Someone was recently saying to me that the client chart should have an updated 
list of items.  Here is what I came up with:

XMPP IM 1.0 compliant (this implies a ton of things, like SRV, SSL/TLS, SASL, 
basic chat, etc)
Unicode
Multiple Simultaneous logins
Data Forms (jep-4)
Service Discovery (jep-30)
Multi-User Chat (jep-45)
Message logging/history
Emoticons (jep-38)
File Transfer (jep-96)
End-to-end encryption (jep-27 or other)
HTTP Polling Proxy (jep-25)
Skinning
Voice Chat

This would make the list much more useful I think, incorporating the recent 
standards and throwing away really stupid items like "Basic Chat" and "Sound 
notifications", which all listed clients (at least for windows) support.

I don't think that the JEP numbers should be listed next to the features on 
the actual website, I only list them here for clarification.  But the idea is 
to have much more strict guidelines.  To claim groupchat support, the client 
would need to support jep-45.  I think this would make the chart more useful, 
and would help promote the standards.
