Ayttm is an instant messenger program, supporting various protocols such as MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Jabber, and more. It is a fork of Everybuddy, and initially aims to address its problems. It should not segfault when you use it, and should be almost instantly usable by your mother. Almost useless prefs should be hidden, reserved for "advanced" users, and things have to work without wondering what this or that will produce.
Release Notes: The MSN protocol was updated to MSNP15. The Yahoo protocol was updated to YMSG16. Fixes were made for Jabber. Service discovery and GMail notifications are now supported. Spellchecking is now provided by aspell by default. The networking code was overhauled. There is now a transparent connection layer which takes care of SSL, proxies, etc. for the protocols. Improvements were made in support of character encodings other than UTF-8. Ayttm now uses stock icons wherever possible. Various fixes were made to the status window and chat window UI. The deprecated AIM-TOC, ICQ-TOC, and ICQ modules were removed from the package.
