Until recently, the XMPP transport was developed on its own feature branch to make sure it doesn’t interfere with the regular Mule 3 development.
I’ve been blogging recently about the usefulness of the transport. That blog post included a link to a custom bamboo build plan from which you could download a Mule distribution that included the new XMPP transport. Dowloading a full Mule release just to try out a new transport seems overly complex. So I decided to replace the existing XMPP transport with the new one in the Mule 3.0.0-M2 release we recently published.
So if you want to play with the new XMPP transport, download the Mule 3.0.0-M2 release and have fun.
As always, I’d like to hear from you if the new transport is useful or if you find any bugs with it.
