I’m excited to announce a new player in the Jabber/XMPP game Swift. Shortly after finishing the XMPP Book, I started working on Swift, a pragmatic, cross-platform, user-friendly IM client. Together with Kevin Smith, we are building this project from the ground up, driving its development using agile methodologies. Underneath the IM client, we are working on an extensible and robust XMPP library, written in C++.
Until we launch the project and its website, you can subscribe to the Swift blog and identi.ca group to stay up to date with the latest news and developments around the project. Thanks to Dave Cridland for lending us his graphical capabilities and drawing us a pretty logo.
