Daniel is currently adding a number of new protocols to the IM gateway and sounds to be pretty close to a release (a month maybe?).
However, because of Spark’'s unique handling of gateways, it will not allow use of the new gateways. So, is there any chance we could either:
- Deal with Sip/Simple, IRC, XMPP and GTalk gateways the same way as we currently deal with MSN, Yahoo etc
- Move to a more traditional model, where you can list all gateways on a server and register with them - in the same way other xmpp clients do?
