Version 1.1.1 of XEP-0106 (JID Escaping) has been released.
Abstract: This specification defines a mechanism that enables the display in
Jabber Identifiers (JIDs) of characters normally disallowed in localparts.
Although these characters spaces, double quote, ampersand, single quote,
forward slash, colon, less than, greater than, and at-sign cannot be included
in XMPP localparts, JID Escaping provides a native XMPP escaping mechanism for
these characters so that the displayed version of a Jabber Identifier can
appear to include these characters. This mechanism can also be used to
translate non-XMPP addreses into XMPP syntax, for example when gatewaying
between XMPP and a non-XMPP communications technology such as email.
Changelog: Update references to the node identifier to localpart, replace
stringprep references with PRECIS, and update JID RFC references. (ssw)
