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

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.

Obsolete due to security vulnerability. (tjb)
