I'm so glad you asked!

As a follow up to "Dusty Drafts" [1], there are currently 66 XEPs currently in Draft - that's more than half of the 101 currently on the Standards Track (Final+Draft+Proposed+Experimental), which can only give the impression that XMPP is still "not ready!" (Considering the commom usage and interpretation of the word 'draft.')

As a start, the following are all Drafts which have not been updated for 10 or more years:

XEP-0141 (Data Forms Layout) [2005-05-12]
XEP-0013 (Flexible Offline Message Retrieval) [2005-07-14]
XEP-0079 (Advanced Message Processing) [2005-11-30]
XEP-0072 (SOAP Over XMPP) [2005-12-14]

XEP-0131 (Stanza Headers and Internet Metadata) [2006-07-12]
XEP-0066 (Out of Band Data) [2006-08-16]
XEP-0059 (Result Set Management) [2006-09-20]

XEP-0092 (Software Version) [2007-02-15]
XEP-0229 (Stream Compression with LZW) [2007-09-26]
XEP-0048 (Bookmarks) [2007-11-07]

XEP-0118 (User Tune) [2008-01-30]
XEP-0221 (Data Forms Media Element) [2008-09-03]
XEP-0231 (Bits of Binary) [2008-09-03]
XEP-0108 (User Activity) [2008-10-29]
XEP-0224 (Attention) [2008-11-13]

XEP-0176 (Jingle ICE-UDP Transport Method) [2009-06-10]
XEP-0256 (Last Activity in Presence) [2009-09-15]
XEP-0177 (Jingle Raw UDP Transport Method) [2009-12-23]

There are also 3 still in Proposed, though XEP-0363 (HTTP File Upload) is on its way; the other two being XEP-0292 (vCard4 Over XMPP) and XEP-0353 (Jingle Message Initiation).

That should be enough to chew on for a while?
