Version 1.1 of XEP-0174 (Serverless Messaging) has been released.
Abstract: This specification defines how to communicate over local or wide-area networks using the principles of zero-configuration networking for endpoint discovery and the syntax of XML streams and XMPP messaging for real-time communication. This method uses DNS-based Service Discovery and Multicast DNS (or Wide-Area DNS-SD) to discover entities that support the protocol, including their IP addresses and preferred ports. Any two entities can then negotiate a serverless connection using standard XML streams in order to exchange XMPP message and IQ stanzas.
Changelog: Clarified order of publishing and querying DNS records; corrected several DNS errors in the text and examples; added friendly How It Works section; added implementation note about port choice; updated TXT records to reflect version 1.5 of XEP-0115; updated registry; generalized text to handle usage of wide-area DNS-SD.
