Even though this piece of software is doing a good job, it got a little rusty and features needed to be added. Also I had to do some small fixes.
The SMS extractor is now able to output the extracted text messages into an XML formatted file. The following example will show the format that is being used:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<text>This is an example text message.</text>
<address>+49 123 45678910</address>
<text>This is an example iMessage.</text>
The format is valid XML, was however “randomly” chosen. If you need a different format, please use the updated standalone version (see below) and make your adaptions or send me a request to change the format.
Remaining TODOs are to implement the Android XML format as well as fix correct sender/receiver addresses for group chats.
You can retrieve the code of the updated standalone version here.

In case you need instructions on how to work with the standalone version, please refer to the very original release post.
Also, naturally, the update was included in the online version of the extractor!
