http://download.gnome.org/sources/empathy/0.8/

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.

Where can I find out more?
==========================
You can visit the project web site:

http://live.gnome.org/Empathy

What’s New?
===========
- Fixed contact list handling.
- Make use of NetworkManager to set presence to OFFLINE when we are disconnected
and restore presence once we are reconnected.
- UI for searching in conversation history and to view all conversations with
a given contact.
- Do not use 2 different processes (empathy and empathy-chat), merge them
into one client. This is easier for debugging and share data.
- Do not create log directory for a chat if there is no messages to put in.
- Do not set active contacts when creating the store, and when contact groups
changed.
- Fix warning when using command-line options.
- Ignore ssl errors by default. This is needed to connect jabber accounts
using ssl.
- Adding spellcheck support using aspell.
- Lots of bugs fixed.

Bugs Fixed:
===========
- Fixed #445859, Add Smooth scrolling to chat view. (Raphael Slinckx)
