Anyone know what became of the Gaim-E Project?

It died due to lack of interest, mostly.  Some IM protocols require
short message blocks; OpenPGP messages are usually quite long.  Thus,
Gaim-E was never able to support as many protocols as Gaim/Pidgin itself

A different project, OTR, provides confidential instant messaging.  I
have some minor quibbles with it, but all in all, OTR seems to be the
best thing going for IM confidentiality.
