What is it?
Empathy is a messaging program which supports text, voice, and video
chat and file transfers over many different protocols.  Empathy is the
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 “happy birthday my love, now you can delete your logs^Wprevious
conversations” release.

 • telepathy-logger ≥ 0.2.0
 • folks ≥ 0.3.5
 • telepathy-glib ≥ 0.13.12
 • telepathy-farstream (optional)

Empathy has been ported to latest telepathy-logger API and is now able
to delete previous conversations.

You can now block annoying contacts.

This release also brings empathy-call, a new experimental handler for
Call channels, our new audio/video API that is going to replace
StreamedMedia channels.
If you wish to test it, you'll need to install telepathy-farstream.
This new handler can easily be disabled by passing --enable-call=no
during the configure.
