A couple of announcements have recently been posted to the standards-JIG mailing list about the Jingle specifications. This is noteworthy because Jingle is the XMPP extension for peer-to-peer session initiation, including Voice Over IP, and it is essentially the protocol used by Google Talk. It will be interesting to see non-Google clients implement the protocol, and how soon gateways between SIP, H.323, and Jingle get implemented.

JEP = “Jabber enhancement proposal” JIG = “Jabber interest group” SIP = the “session initiation protocol”, the IETF’s VOIP standard H.323 = the ITU’s VOIP standard VOIP = voice over IP XMPP = the standard core of Jabber
