Version 1.1.1 of XEP-0106 (JID Escaping) has been released.

Abstract: This specification defines a mechanism that enables the display in Jabber Identifiers (JIDs) of characters normally disallowed in localparts. Although these characters  spaces, double quote, ampersand, single quote, forward slash, colon, less than, greater than, and at-sign  cannot be included in XMPP localparts, JID Escaping provides a native XMPP escaping mechanism for these characters so that the displayed version of a Jabber Identifier can appear to include these characters. This mechanism can also be used to translate non-XMPP addreses into XMPP syntax, for example when gatewaying between XMPP and a non-XMPP communications technology such as email.

Changelog: Update references to the node identifier to localpart, replace stringprep references with PRECIS, and update JID RFC references. (ssw)
