We all know that Gaim is the most well known IM client on GNU/Linux platform. It's simple and working on most platform (Windows and GNU/Linux). It can be used as an alternative for YM for Linux which is not developped again. The current version is 1.5.0 and the latest development version is 2.0.0beta1. The road to 2.0.0 final is a long way and therefore, Sean Egan made a Planet Gaim to aggregate all of Gaim's developer to talk about Gaim's status right now.
He notted that he will release another beta version in short time and here are some of the new features that will be included in this release:
* Global Buddy Icon Selector
* Buddy List Group Indenting
* libgaim and gaim-text
Everybody that had used Gaim will be glad to see the webcam support included in the final version. I also heard that it will support audibles for YM also. It will be nice features as well if it will be included :D
