Some things have changed:

a) Microsoft is gradually trying to get Lync into organisations, they
also have Skype.  Free software needs to provide a compelling
alternative and we need to start by drinking our own brew (and that
means running SIP and XMPP for ourselves).

b) WebRTC - this is just a massive area.  Every browser upgraded this
year will be a potential client for SIP and XMPP.

c) NAT traversal: this has improved a lot with the ICE and TURN
protocols.  People using modern softphones that support these things
will have far less frustration than with the first round of free VoIP

We just announced the Debian.org SIP service today:
