What is it?
Empathy consists of a rich set of reusable instant messaging widgets,
and a GNOME client using those widgets. It uses Telepathy and Nokia's
Mission Control, and reuses Gossip's UI. The main goal is to permit
desktop integration by providing libempathy and libempathy-gtk
libraries. libempathy-gtk is a set of powerful widgets that can be
embeded into any GNOME application.

What's New?
 - Only update the topic of it has really be changed, avoid diplaying
   times "Topic set to:" message.
 - Some Jabber chatroom sends messages received before we joined the
room, avoid
   displaying those messages if we already logged them last time we
joined that
   room. Previous workaround prevented Empathy to log offline messages.
