I sent you a private message as well, but either way, great! I also wonder if your work with Smack could be merged into the ‘‘real dist’’! (like perhaps it could offer both synchronous and asynchronous behavior)
Can you post a link to the beta GTALK plugin?
There was an announcement about it in the forums … look for 1.1.0 Beta 2. (it’'s also up on the beta plugins page)
