 Pidgin implements a very basic form of name completion which doesn't work with some of the newer protocols (namely Hipchat which has a distinction between highlight names and display names).  This project is to create an interface for protocol plugins to expose what is complete-able as well as implement an API in libpurple that will be used by the user interfaces.
 Also, some of the new protocols have added additional highlights (that should be complete-able) and cause the user to be notified (blue tab in Pidgin).  Examples of the additional highlights are @here and @all in Hipchat, and @channel in Slack.
+== Advanced Features ==
+=== Screen sharing ===
+Many modern messenger protocols have the capability of sharing the user's screen, with or without remote control.  While this can be dangerous, viewing a shared desktop or sharing the local desktop is interesting to many users, particularly in managed environments.  The maintainers of the purple SIPE protocol have implemented RDP sharing over Lync, and are interested in helping Pidgin/libpurple adopt a protocol-agnostic interface for screen sharing as well as working with us to get XMPP screen sharing capabilities in place.
