Empathy, a messaging program that supports text, voice and video chat, and file transfers over many different protocols, is now at version 3.10 Beta 1.
Empathy 3.10 Beta 1 uses Telepathy for protocol and the user interface is based on Gossip. The Empathy messenger is also the default chat client in current versions of GNOME.
The application supports all major protocols, including Google Talk (Jabber/XMPP), MSN, IRC, Salut, AIM, Facebook, Yahoo, and more.
This latest version of Empathy is just a bugfix release, with only a couple of changes.
Highlights of Empathy 3.10 Beta 1:
• A crash that occurred when deleting a non-chat GOA account has been fixed;
• Empathy will no longer provide user information after the account has been deleted;
• Deleting a contact in multiple groups is now working properly.
Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
