A rather unusual result of this year's Summer of Code is a new XMPP extension I created:

The basic idea behind it is to send someone an "attention grabbing" message. This is known on other protocols as buzz or nudge. In Adium, it will probably let the window send ripples like dropped widgets in in Dashboard in version 1.2, if somebody can fix the bugs this feature currently has.

I guess I'll get cursed for this extension, since it's a rather annoying feature. However, my implementation in Adium can be disabled from the account settings!
