As discussed previously, Adium is participating in this year's Google Summer of Code.

Google gave us six slots, just like last year. We've made our choices; here they are:

Adding Voice Support to Adium by Implementing a Basic A/V Backend and IAX
Student: Justin Berka
Mentor: Alan Humpherys
More information on IAX.
Improving group chat
Student: Erik Beerepoot
Mentor: David Smith
Unit testing
Student: Patrick Gibson
Mentor: Brian Ganninger
Fix & expand AppleScript support
Student: Matt Handley
Mentor: Peter Hosey
Improving Adium's XMPP (Jabber) Support
Student: Andreas Monitzer
Mentor: Augie Fackler
Features Andreas wants to implement: Gateway support, PEP, user tune, user avatar, user nickname, OTR-over-Jabber improvements, better hyperlinking over Jabber, discovery browsing, ad-hoc commands, and possibly invisibility.
Improved Bonjour Support
Student: Erich Kreutzer
Mentor: Andrew Wellington

On Jabber: Yes, we had a similar project last year, but that was using Smack (a separate Jabber library), which we had to drop because of the Java-Cocoa bridge going away. Andreas is back to do it again in libpurple.

Also, we're not going to have a separate student blog this year. Students' blog posts will be here, on the main blog.
