Description:

Kopete is a Messenger program that allows you to chat on ICQ, MSN and AIM (and more in the future). Since it have a plugin system, you can code support for your own protocols. Kopete can load even binary plugins from disk as shared libraries, and they are not limited just to be messenger protocols, you will be able to extend kopete with no limits in a near future.

why don't you just use apps.kde.com to promote your app instead of this site ?

not to be a wet blanket, but i really dont think this is the place to advertise software (even if it is free). go to downloads.com, apps.kde.com or some other website that is built for that...

for AIM does it (or its plugin) use? I would *love* to use Kinkatta (a KDE app), but I'm stuck with using GAIM (GTK+ based) because it uses OSCAR while Kinkatta uses TOC.

GAIM is a very good client in and of itself, but I'm striving for a coherent desktop (ie, all KDE based; whe KDE 3 comes out, exanded to all Qt based).

Kinkatta is cool, it has tons of features, but the showstopper for me is that I can't check others' away messages without the client reteiving an auto-reply message, which pops up as an IM for the peorosn whose Away message is being read. The TOC protocol also has other disadvantages.

To learn to use OSCAR, one has to rverse engineer it. The GAIM folks have done that pretty darn well. I wish the Kinkatta developers would work with the GAIM folks and share networking underpinnings.

Kopete looks very promising, if only it will use OSCAR.

Skinnability!

Use of existing ICQ+ skins would kill, maim and destroy!
