What is it?
===========
Empathy consists of a rich set of reusable instant messaging widgets, and a
GNOME client using those widgets. It uses Telepathy and Nokia's Mission Control,
and reuses Gossip's UI. The main goal is to permit desktop integration by
providing libempathy and libempathy-gtk libraries. libempathy-gtk is a set of
powerful widgets that can be embeded into any GNOME application.

What's New?
===========
 - Do not highlight groups when adding them in the roster.
 - Do not create new GossipContact object in presence/avatar/alias changed
   signal if we don't already know that contact from a contact list channel.
   This should fix DBus max pending calls limit reached in some cases.
 - New icon for empathy-new-message, empathy-group-message and
   empathy-proto-irc.
 - Chatroom support. New objects: GossipNewChatroomDialog, GossipAccountChooser,
   GossipGroupChat
 - If we are offline do not set away on idle. If we are already away restore to
   available when we are no mode idle. Do no modify status message.
 - Fixed message displaying with fancy themes.
 - Many bugs fixed.

    Hi xavier.

    I have just made a rpm of empathy and send it for inclusion in mandriva cooker, so it will be in the contrib repository of the next stable version of mandriva ( ie 2008.0 ).
