Rumor is Cisco is no longer going to do any further feature development for Jabber besides some features coming up in the next release. They want everyone to move to Spark. They have given Jabber 3-4 years more before they announce end of life. Anyone here knows if this is true?
All Fake news by it_registrations , Jabber has a healthy release cadence, major releases every 6 mths and minor releases every 8 weeks.
11.5, 11.6, 11.7, 11.8, 11.9 and soon 12.0 are all key releases with major functionality, next up is 12.1 and 12.5 and both releases are bringing out key enhancements and the best in market experience.
