Hello Severino! :)
I am glad you mentioned XMPP, and in fact I also see it and https://kdetalk.net/ as an alternative.
I am participating in a project that aims to develop a cross-platform XMPP client, Kaidan: https://github.com/kaidanim/kaidan
It uses Kirigami as a UI toolkit and libgloox for the backend.
It is still very basic, but we already have some users, so there clearly is interest.

When I was at FOSDEM this year, I was told about KDE moving away from IRC and looking for something else.
I'm not involved in KDE as an active contributor or developer, but I'm a happy KDE software user, so this felt really close to me.
After trying to follow the discussions on the mailing list, I was hugely surprised that XMPP was not being mentioned.
That encouraged me to send this email.
I don't know if someone else already asked for the same thing. I apologise if that's the case.
I have created this table: https://github.com/SeveFP/KDE_IM_Requirements/wiki/XMPP-Table
based on the one at https://community.kde.org/IM_Survey_Results
I was not sure if I was allowed to modify the current table at https://community.kde.org, that's why I started creating one by myself first, to let you check it.
It has been a long time, trying to check all emails and blog posts. If there's any requirement empty it's probably because I didn't understand what it means.
Let me point out that XMPP is a safe bet for years to come, as it's a widely deployed living standard.
Being this such an important move, I would like you to think about XMPP as an option.
Personally, KDE has been doing awesome work with KTP and I would love to see more work in this direction with XMPP.
Also, a mention to https://kdetalk.net/ is well deserved.
The XMPP community is really great, welcoming and active. Don't hesitate to approach it, you won't be disappointed!
Thank you for your time,
Severino Ferrer de la Peñita.
