the recently released Google Talk software.
"Last month, the Jabber Software Foundation (JSF) released documentation for two extensions to the Jabber (XMPP) protocol, named Jingle Signaling and Jingle Audio. On the same day, Google -- co-creators of the extensions -- released a BSD-style-licensed library called libjingle, the implementation of the extensions that powers the company's Google Talk software. In addition to opening the API used in Google Talk itself, both actions will benefit open source instant messaging clients and perhaps increase the pressure on closed systems like Skype.
