DBus Transport Layer
Goal: Ease the integration of XMPP into existing applications by providing a unified way to send arbitrary (but valid) stanzas via the DBus IPC protocol using only one resource and connection to the Jabber server.
Student: Jakub Piotr Cłapa

Goal: Add support for privacy lists, delayed delivery, non-SASL authentication, private XML storage, vCards, and several other features to the xmppd.py server.
Student: Cheng-En Pang
Goal: Help the gloox C++ library to full XMPP compliance.
Result: I was able to complete my goal in time and additionally added support for several XEPs to gloox.
You can find more information about the current status, planned work and source code releases at gloox' homepage: camaya.net/gloox
Student: Jakob Schröter
Goal: Develop a new XMPP-based Message Transport Protocol for the Java Agent Development framework.
Student: Shawn Drost
Goal: Develop a strong code foundation for a Gnome Jabber client using Mono, C#, and Gnome#.
Student: Dominik Zab?otny
Jive Messenger Security Enhancements
Goal: Add support for SASL and TLS (as defined in RFC 3920) to Jive Messenger.
Student: Hao Chen
Compliance Testing Project
Goal: Develop the basis for a Java-based XMPP compliance platform for testing both servers and clients.
Student: Johan van Overbeeke

Goal: Develop a clean Ruby library that implements the XMPP specifications.
Student: Yuki Mitsui
HTTP Jabber Interface
It will use a database to store messages and forward it to the Jabber server. It relays those messages and returns the response from the jabber server to the client.
The HTTP is used to relay the jabber messages and hence it can be used with any HTTP server and doesnt need any new port permissions to be assigned. Hence making the Jabber to work in even restricted environments.
