Hi all,
  We've just released the final pre-1.0 beta of Swift (next step
Release Candidate). We have no known bugs in Swift at this point, so
if you find any please please report them so we can get them fixed for
the RC.

A fuller changelog is available at
http://swift.im/releases/swift-1.0beta9/, but the highlights include:

* On servers that support it, users can now perform searches for
contacts to add or chat to.
* The roster header can now be configured to show the JID instead of the nick.
* Server certificates are now verified and validated. Certificates not
passing the tests require confirmation.
* Added dialog changing your nickname and avatar.
* Swift now uses SCRAM-SHA-1-PLUS authentication on servers that support it.
* Highlighting an item in the login account list and pressing detele
will now prompt you to remove the cached credentials for that account.
(Thanks to Thilo Cestonaro)
* Added keyboard accelerators for tabs and commands. (Thanks to Arnt
* Security labels (XEP-0258) support has been updated to match the
latest version of the specification.

needing to right-click on the item)
* Fixed all known bugs.
* Various speed improvements.
