I was wondering if there will be an optional built-in chat or shoutbox. I think it'd be very useful for people who have them on their forums and upgrade to XF, so that the users don't have to deal with the loss and complain for the lack of one.

If not, what about plugins? I haven't heard anything about plugins.

A shoutbox would be great as a plug in for sure, and official one would be cool :)

I'd rather code one myself to make sure it's done the way I want it tbh - there are plenty of subtle differences between the various shoutbox/chatbox mods for vBulletin etc.
