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?
 - contact list refactoring: EmpathyContactList is an iface implemented
   EmpathyTpContactList, EmpathyContactManager and EmpathyTpChatroom.
   GossipContactList splitted into GossipContactListStore and
   GossipContactListView, it can display any object implementing the
   EmpathyContactList iface. Make possible to set custom functions to
   the groups of a contact, by default it gets the "group" property of
   GossipContact object. This make possible to reuse the contact list UI
   the main window for chatrooms where groups are the role/affiliation
of the
   contact on that room.
 - Auto away when gnome-screensaver says the session is idle and
extended away
   30min after that.
 - Display ChatState when the contact is composing.
 - Bugbuddy now reports crashes to GNOME Bugzilla.
 - New program icon.
 - Setting i18n support and importing po files from gossip.
 - Add an example label for jid.
 - Do not open chat window twice for the same conversation.

- Updated sv: Daniel Nylander
- Updated en_GB: David Lodge <dave at cirt.net>
