GSoC '09, with XMPP
The XMPP Standards Foundation has helped support a number of open-source projects through Google's Summer of Code program over the years. Although the XSF is not participating in the Google Summer of Code this year, a number of XMPP-related projects have been accepted by other mentoring organizations...
- XMPP - libpurple transport, allowing servers to offer gateways to all the IM networks that Pidgin (or Adium) supports
- Privacy Rewrite, giving users powerful controls over "XMPP firewalling"
- Telepathy prpl, integrating Pidgin's powerful Purple library with the GNOME Instant Messaging and Presence framework
- Apache Foundation:
- Python Foundation:
- Gnome :
- KDE :
- Maemo :
At the XSF, we're tremendously excited to see so much implementation of cutting edge technologies in so many widespread projects. It's a testement to the innovative nature of the XMPP community, and we're looking forward to seeing - and using - the results.
