Congrats! In the best of traditions, I think it would be proper to fix the date and track, possibly with a force push.

> Hi all, 
> Editor hat on. 
> This announcement may seem a bit unorthodox, however, the past days, weeks, 
> months and years have seen a lot of criticism of XMPP. Often times, people 
> claim that there is a single specific feature missing which other messengers 
> have and which is absolutely required, otherwise, XMPP will be doomed. 
> Obviously, we cannot run after each feature such claimed. We need to be 
> smarter and find the underlying technologies which enable such features. For 
> this, we need to look no further than the Web. 
> The web has been a great success. Look at all the things on the web. Matrix 
> uses web technology and many other popular messengers, proprietary or libre, 
> closed or federated, are built upon technologies enabled by the web stack, 
> such as WebSockets, WebRTC, WebASM, WebGL, or WebRCE. 
> Since XMPP is clearly still stuck in the 90ies, we need to start our catch up 
> with a 90ies web technology which could not have been more influential. 
> With this introductory text, the following XEP announcement should make most 
> sense to everyone: 
> Version 1.0 of XEP-0464 (Cookies) has been released. 
> Abstract: 
> This document defines an XMPP protocol extension for setting and 
> sending cookies. 
> Changelog: 
> Publish initial version via fast track (XEP Editor: jsc). (tjb) 
> URL: https://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0464.html 
> Note: The information in the XEP list at https://xmpp.org/extensions/

> time this email is sent. The XEP documents linked herein are up-to- 
> date.
