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?
A lot of new things in this release!

Empathy now has an awesome contact live search feature.
See http://kaserf.blogspot.com/2010/06/empathy-live-search.html for details.

Empathy doesn't log messages any more but relies on a new component,
the telepathy-logger, to do so. As a result the feature allowing you to tag
contacts as favourites is now built-in.

The contact list and status icon are now a proper Telepathy Approver. That
means external applications can now approve channels as well and Empathy will
handle them nicely.

This release makes a few steps forward to the bright GNOME 3 future by removing
deprecated GTK+ symbols and switching from GConf to GSettings.
