Correct, also Livejournal, Facebook, and some others are adopting it.
There was also some possible activity with AOL: (though that
server hasn't been accessible again since the day it was discovered
and slashdotted)

As I wrote in the announcement and release notes, it's still
alpha-stage, so there are likely quite some problems (at the protocol
level) remaining at the moment. We're releasing now to get more eyes
on those bugs :)

That said, we're already running it full-time in a couple of places,
though not as a primary server. A usable release isn't far away (I'll
be switching my home server to it pretty soon).
