History:
In two of my previous post (Introducing MemChat and Jaxl BOSH Demo), I discussed and demoed a very early version of WP Chat plugin. In past 3 months, work has been done to make WP Chat generic enough so that it can be embedded across all kind of blogs, forums, social, personal and enterprise level websites. As of today, the product is named as “Jaxl IM (Instant Messenger for the web)” and made available as “WP-Chat” for the wordpress users.
