Once this is out, we should review everything with 2.7.11 and FBXMPP and decide at that time if we want to move forward with the release or wait until FBXMPP is done.

But what I've learnt from updates that involved migrations in the past is that they to require a good deal of testing so I agree with others who said we should do that before putting a beta with it out (provided, we'll wait on Facebook XMPP migration for 1.4.2).
