Several of you have discovered that ColdFusion XMPP gateway Google Talk bots have stopped working (those that have logged out and tried to log in again). It seems that Google Talk began requiring SASL PLAIN auth, and this is not yet supported by our XMPP gateway implementation. We are working with SASL PLAIN and SASL [MD5 DIGEST], and will let you know as we have it ready.
I will still post that “how to build a bot” story I promised, but you’ll not be able to try it out until we get that patch out. Sorry. 🙁
