Version 2.10.0 of XEP-0004 (Data Forms) has been released.

This specification defines an XMPP protocol extension for data forms
that can be used in workflows such as service configuration as well as
for application-specific data description and reporting. The protocol
includes lightweight semantics for forms processing (such as request,
response, submit, and cancel), defines several common field types
(boolean, list options with single or multiple choice, text with
single line or multiple lines, single or multiple JabberIDs, hidden
fields, etc.), provides extensibility for future data types, and can
be embedded in a wide range of applications. The protocol is not
intended to provide complete forms-processing functionality as is
provided in the W3C XForms technology, but instead provides a basic
subset of such functionality for use by XMPP entities.

Clarify that fields which are not required may be omitted on
submission. (fs)
