With GNOME 2.24, Empathy has become the preferred instant messaging client. Empathy is based off Gossip's user-interface (the earlier GNOME IM client) and uses the Telepathy library. Empathy/Telepathy currently supports connecting to Jabber, Salut, Google Talk, AIM, Novell GroupWise, ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo. Empathy does also support making voice and video calls using SIP and Jingle

libpurple:
· Ability to create custom smileys (currently only the MSN protocol utilizes the feature). (Thanks to Mauro Sérgio Ferreira Brasil, Marcus Lundblad, Jorge Villaseñor and other contributors)
· Add a configure option, --with-system-ssl-certs to allow packagers to specify a system-wide SSL CA certificates directory. When set, we don't install our SSL CA certs, so it's important that the libpurple package depend on the CA certificates.
· Add SSL Certificates support to the NSS SSL plugin. (Thanks to Lou Cipher)

XMPP:
· Fix a bug that caused the UI to not refresh and caused the client to use 99% CPU when an XMPP account lost its connection to the server.
· Possibly fix a bug where some clients could get into a state where they moved a buddy back and forth between two groups in an endless loop.

IRC:
· /ctcp command (Vladislav Guberinić)
· Allow for auto-detection of incoming UTF-8 formatted text on accounts which are configured to use some other encoding.

MSN:
· Update MSN support to protocol 15 (Elliott Sales de Andrade, Jorge Villaseñor, Mike Ruprecht, Carlos Silva, Ma Yuan, Daniel Ljungborg and others)
· Personal messages are now supported. They are treated as status messages.
· Offline IM is now supported.
· Aliasing is now supported server-side.
· Buddies are now emblemed. Bots and web clients should now be distinguished.
· Update smiley set for non-faces.
· Failing to update a buddy icon when the buddy has gone offline no longer crashes.
· Custom smileys received in a chat no longer go to a new window.
· Processing is no longer completely frozen after the servers block a message because it contains (what they consider) inappropriate text.

Pidgin:
· Custom buddy icons can now be added to and removed from buddy list entries via the buddy list entry right-click menu.
· Resize large incoming custom smileys to a maximum of 96px on either side.
· Offer to add new buddies into the same contact as existing buddies in the same group if the alias given is the same.
· Minor smiley style update.

General:
· Group and Chat buddy list entries can now be given custom buddy icons.

Finch:
· Added "Invite..." menu to chats.
· Added "View All Logs" menu in the buddylist to display a list of all IM logs.
· Added '/msgcolor' command to change colors of different classes of messages in a conversation. See '/help msgcolor' for details.
· Added tab-completion for commands in conversation windows.

Well, I think there are some confused minds over there at Gnome: They develop Gnomebaker yet lately the default is Brasero. Ekiga is somewhere dead in the water. Pidgin endorsement seems to fade because someone just remembered Telepathy is not dead yet and now has a fork... Perhaps in Gnome 2.26 Kopete will be the default IM 'cause someone took the wise decision to actively endorse KDE 4.1

Hum, ok, Empathy seems to be the default in Gnome 2.24, so, it will surely be in Fedora 10.

If you want to use libpurple (the same protocol as Pidgin), just install telepathy-haze and telepathy-haze-mission-control. That way, you will have all the protocol supported by Pidgin.
