Microsoft opens Messenger up to XMPP

Microsoft has announced that its Messenger instant messaging system will now accept connections over the XMPP protocol. The company had announced it was opening up Messenger to XMPP at the BUILD conference in September and had previously offered a developer preview. XMPP is an open standard for exchanging messages, originally known as the Jabber protocol. Microsoft is following in the footsteps of Google's Talk and Facebook's Chat services which both support XMPP.
