I don't know of any open-source additions to it that aren't on Github.

You might be interested in mod_candy:

not, it's a convenience plugin that simply serves a pre-configured

This is certainly in The Plan. The server-side will use XEP-0313
through mod_mam_muc which allows Candy (or any other client) to
request the room logs over XMPP. This allows it to "catch up" on
missed history, and even implement "infinite scrolling" or a calendar
kind of view. You get the idea.

But this is still very much a work in progress. We're hoping it will
be ready with the 0.10 release, which doesn't have a date yet. I don't
think anyone has started on the Candy side of things.

Since we're actively working on this (but also many other things at
the same time!) I recommend you come speak to us in the chatroom[1] if
you're planning on using or contributing things in this area.
