KDE Telepathy 0.2 IM client released
The developers at KDE's Real-Time Communication and Collaboration (RTCC) project have announced the release of version 0.2 of Telepathy, an open source Instant Messaging (IM) client for KDE. The IM client uses the Telepathy Framework and includes support for services such as Google Talk and Facebook chat.
Telepathy 0.2 includes integration with KWallet for storing passwords and a new plasmoid for quick access to a contact. The updated application also allows users to set their status to the track currently being played by mpris2-compatable players such as Amarok and Clementine.
Other changes include the addition of a progress bar and cancel button for file transfers, support for Auto Away and fixes for more than 130 bugs found in the previous build – the developers released a "technical preview" (version 0.1) in late July of this year, alongside the release of KDE SC 4.7.
Further information about the release can be found in a blog post by Telepathy developer David Edmundson. Telepathy 0.2 is available to download from one of the KDE project's mirrors and installation instructions are provided.
