Telepathy 0.4.5

Telepathy project aims to provide a unified framework for all forms of real time conversations.
Telepathy project aims to provide a unified framework for all forms of real time conversations, including instant messaging, IRC, voice calls and video calls. It uses the DBus messaging system to provide a simple interface for client applications, allowing them to quickly benefit from Telepathy's functionality.

At the core of Telepathy is the DBus interface specification which describes how Telepathy components communicate with each other. We are up to spec version 0.13. For a more approachable introduction to the structure of the framework, try the System Overview document. The Ubuntu spec for SIP/IM integration includes a good rationale for this distributed approach.
