Personal Eventing via Pubsub - 

The following four are based on this:

User Mood -

Simple, just for testing PEP

User Avatar -

This is implemented in parallel to vcard-temp avatars. libpurple  
publishes the avatar in both ways, and it can get other's avatar in  
both ways

User Tune -

This one was fairly problematic in terms of API implementation.

User Nickname -

The nickname overrides the nickname the user set (on the roster). I'm  
not 100% sure if this is a good idea.

Sending Ad-Hoc Commands -

The server's ad-hoc commands are shown in the account menu, if any  
client on the roster offers ad-hoc commands, they're shown in the  
contact's menu.

buzznudgepoke -

This is likely to be changed slightly (at least the namespace will  
have to be changed to urn:xmpp:attention once it's accepted).

Entity Capabilities -

Heavy changes are expected on this XEP, but the current  
implementation is the one all other clients support right now.

Delayed Delivery -

This one replaces the old XEP with the same name. It just changed the  
date format to conform with everything else in XMPP, nothing fancy.

Data Forms -

Added support for the required-option for fields

Ping -

That one isn't my code, I just applied the patch


Jabber option "Use TLS encryption (required)"

In Jabber, plain-text representation of hyperlinks should include URL

I hope I didn't forget anything...
