According to SiproLAB website (http://www.sipro.com/G729.html) it appears that the G.729 patents have expired. Are any development resources currently working on integrating G.729 decode capabilities into Wireshark?

There's always a chance, and the odds have now improved considerably.

No one is currently working on it as far as I know, but it's worth filling an enhancement request in our Bugzilla with a pcap containing a call using this codec for testing purpose.

I planned to add this feature in February, but have not gotten to this yet. A sample capture for G.729A is available at https://wiki.wireshark.org/SampleCaptures#SIP_and_RTP, while the bcg729 library looks promising. (Apparently ffmpeg has a decoder too, but I did not look into that.)

For the sake of completeness: Enhancement request is documented with bug 13635
