Ben benieuwd of de bug met het ophalen van MSN-avatars inmiddels is opgelost. Aan de changelog te zien niet, maar toch even proberen straks. 't Blijft een fijne chatclient voor de Gnome-desktop.
Vergeet de custom emoticons bug niet, zit er ook al een aantal versies in (van 2.7.5 dacht ik)
Is er een voordeel t.o.v. empathy?

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
