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?
This is the first release in the new 2.91 development branch.
Empathy now depends on GTK+3 and can't build with GTK+2 anymore.
As a consequence, dependencies linking on GTK+ itself have been bumped to
depend on the GTK+3 version of those libs.

 • GTK+ ≥ 2.91.0
 • libcanberra-gtk3 ≥ 0.25
 • libnotify ≥ 0.5.1
 • libunique ≥ 2.90.1
 • WebKitGTK+ ≥ 1.3.2 (optional)
 • nautilus-sendto ≥ 2.90.0 (optional)
