Here you have client's version:

<presence>
  <c xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/caps'
     node='http://exodus.jabberstudio.org/caps'
     ver='0.9'/>
</presence>


Here you have client's name:

<iq type='result'
    from='romeo at montague.net/orchard'
    to='juliet at capulet.com/balcony'
    id='info3'>
  <query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info'>
    <identity
        category='client'
        type='pc'
        name='Exodus'/>
    <feature var='jabber:iq:time'/>
    <feature var='jabber:iq:version'/>
  </query>
</iq>


I'm not sure where to put OS though...
