What is it?
Empathy is a messaging program which supports text, voice, and video chat and file transfers over many different protocols. Empathy uses Telepathy for protocol support and has an user interface based on Gossip. Empathy is the default chat client in current versions of GNOME, making it easier for other GNOME applications to integrate collaboration functionality using Telepathy.

What's New?
The « Alban, 28 affonds (of Nutella) ! » release.

The contact list has been improved to make it harder to accidentally call
a contact when you just intended to select a row. The accounts dialog has been
reworked to reduce the number of steps when adding a new account.
Thanks to Thomas Meire, a new contributor, the nick auto-completion has been
improved in rooms.
We also fixed a bunch of crashes and a regression when starting a video call.
