There has been a veritable explosion of peer-to-peer projects. A complete and current listing is essentially impossible. This list is a best-effort attempt at high-profile projects and some pointers to some decent meta-sites that contain links to lesser known projects.

Some meta-sites listing many projects

A good academically-oriented meta-site is the IEEE distributed systems site.
A good commercially/politically-oriented site is O'Reilly's Open Peer-to-Peer News/Article Site. In particular check out their extensive project directory.
Another meta-site is The Peertal.
