What is it?
Empathy consists of a rich set of reusable instant messaging widgets,
and a GNOME client using those widgets. It uses Telepathy and Nokia's
Mission Control, and reuses Gossip's UI. The main goal is to permit
desktop integration by providing libempathy and libempathy-gtk
libraries. libempathy-gtk is a set of powerful widgets that can be
embeded into any GNOME application.

What's New?
 - Fixed contact list handling.
 - Make use of NetworkManager to set presence to OFFLINE when we are
   and restore presence once we are reconnected.
 - UI for searching in conversation history and to view all
conversations with
   a given contact.
 - Do not use 2 different processes (empathy and empathy-chat), merge
   into one client. This is easier for debugging and share data.
 - Do not create log directory for a chat if there is no messages to put
 - Do not set active contacts when creating the store, and when contact
