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 functionality.

What's New?
This release optionally brings back empathy-av, the old call UI which has been
removed in 3.3.90. You'll have to pass --enable-empathy-av to configure in
order to build it. empathy-av is now using telepathy-farstream instead of
telepathy-farsight and so shares the same dependencies as empathy-call.
This is really legacy code, we are not going to continue
maintaining it so most distributions shouldn't enable it and just use

 • yelp-tools
 • yelp-xsl
