"The hope lies in the telepathy KDE guys, assuming they ever manage to get something out." - einar77 from Reddit.
After lots of delays, we're about ready to make our first release of KDE Telepathy, the new IM framework.
The release coincides with KDE4.7 and the release of digikam, so it's an exciting day to be part of KDE.
It's still very much an early release, there are plenty of things that are a work in progress, but it's showing plenty of promise.
