What is it?

default chat client in GNOME, and is based on the Telepathy framework,
making it easier for other GNOME applications to integrate collaboration

What's New?
The "Where else?" release.

A lot of code has been refactored in this release so if you experience
any regression please report them. Note that inviting IRC contacts is
currently broken (#666531), it should hopefully be fixed soon.
