We are pleased to announce that we have launched support for Jingle
XEP-166 and XEP-167 for Google Talk calls to and from Gmail, iGoogle, and Orkut.  We have also added the same level of support to libjingle (http://code.google.com/p/libjingle), which is used by many native clients.  From this point on, it will be our primary signalling
protocol, and the old protocol will only remain for backwards
compatibility.  We also plan to soon update Google Talk on Android to
speak Jingle, but we do not plan on updating the Google Talk Windows
application.

We suggest all clients that interop with Google Talk to switch to
using Jingle rather than the old protocol.  We will remain backwards
compatible with legacy clients by continuing to speak the old protocol
as well.  If you wish to continue working with legacy clients, such as
the Google Talk application for Windows, you may also wish to continue speaking the old protocol.  But the future is Jingle, and the old
protocol will eventually go away.

Finally, we are still working on implementing XEP-176 (ICE-UDP).  In
the meantime, you'll need to use our draft-06 version of ICE, which is
implemented both in libjingle and in libnice, two open source
libraries.

I hope that this will be a support to the Jingle community and futher
our efforts to have open standards for voice and video communication.

You may be wondering why Skype is Down if it is a P2P network. That is not hard to answer, it is a closed P2P Network which the Fallback Servers and Main Nodes are entirely dependent on Skype itself. So if something goes wrong with them, there is no real fallback like you would have in a distributed regular P2P network like BitTorrent, UseNet or Jingle Nodes.
The main issue is that only Users from within Skype can share the Routes, but not users on different Networks and Domains like you can do with Jingle Nodes.
Skype official response was that they were creating "mega-super-nodes"? I don't know what does that mean, but I'm sure it still have same single point of failure of the current system. Until Skype don't come up with a Federated System, where providers, services and users can share Routes, they will always suffer from outages. And of course the most affected are the users and business that depends directly on them. Nearly 20 Million Users are suffering from the outage.

Open Standard Free alternatives that can provide reliability and superior quality:

Clients with Jingle Nodes Support:
* Nimbuzz (Mobile and Desktop)
* SIP Communicator (Jitsi) (Desktop)
* OneTeam (Desktop)

Services with Jingle Nodes Support:
* Nimbuzz (Free)
* Talkr.im (Free)
