KDE Telepathy 0.2 isn’t too far away, so I thought I’d give a bit of a progress update.
We’ve mostly been working hard to tidy up and stabilise most of what we offered in 0.1, but we’ve also brought in a few shiny features:
Most anticipated of all, there is no longer a dependency on gnome-keyring! Upstream (telepathy) had provided a (mostly working) mechanism for us to provide our own passwords, so we have perfect KWallet integration.
Over the sprint I implemented drag+drop on our contact applet plasmoid so they interact nicely with the contact list.
We’ve made it even easier to see other contacts on your local network (bonjour) added auto away and “now playing” presence messages.
There’s still a lot of things left to sort out, but 0.2 but it is shaping up to be a solid release!
We’re about 1 week away from a hard feature freeze, aiming for a full release in early november. If you want to get involved, or start early beta testing please join us in #kde-telepathy.
