Yes it does.  You probably just need to install some additional cyrus-sasl packages.
Comment 2 Stu Tomlinson 2007-05-02 07:05:26 EDT
We changed the display name of the protocol to "XMPP" in Pidgin, which is
technically more correct but might take a bit of getting used to. Is that what
you were looking for?

Comment 4 Miles Lane 2007-05-03 02:33:06 EDT
Why not call it XMPP/Jabber or something similar?  I searched around quite a
while and found no pages saying, "Hey, the Jabber protocol is also called XMPP!"
 You will otherwise be confusing a lot of users and obfuscating the UI.
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2007-05-03 09:30:01 EDT
Jabber is trademark of Jabber Inc. (http://www.jabber.com) so it cannot be used
as an equivalent of XMPP.
