Projects / OpenGaim


OpenGaim is an instant messaging or "text chat" client capable of communicating over many protocols, including Jabber, AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and more. It is a loose relative of the Gaim project and contains much of the source code in Gaim itself. However, OpenGaim aims to provide quicker releases to fix major problems, and advanced customization options and features not available in Gaim.

    Pointless, adds nothing...
    Please avoid this project, it appears to be the result of one miffed developer who was unhappy with the excellent work currently done by the Gaim development team.

    These releases add practically no new features, and contrary to what the author claims, are LESS frequent than official Gaim releases. (Gaim 0.77 was released nearly 3 weeks ago now, with OpenGaim having yet to follow suit.)

    It is certainly in no way more "open" than the official Gaim, as its name might suggest. I imagine this project will not be very long-lived.
