Version 2.1 of XEP-0138 (Stream Compression) has been released.

Abstract:
This document defines an XMPP protocol extension for negotiating
compression of XML streams, especially in situations where standard
TLS compression cannot be negotiated. The protocol provides a modular
framework that can accommodate a wide range of compression algorithms;
the ZLIB compression algorithm is mandatory-to-implement, but
implementations may support other algorithms in addition.

Changelog:
Obsolete due to security vulnerability. (tjb)
