Finch multi-protocol messaging client (Console UI)
Maintained by: marcus@FreeBSD.org search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 03 May 2007 06:57:05
License: not specified in port


Finch is a multi-protocol instant messaging client. It is compatible with AIM
(Oscar and TOC protocols), ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo, IRC, Jabber, Gadu-Gadu,
and Zephyr networks.

Finch users can log in to multiple accounts on multiple IM networks
simultaneously. This means that you can be chatting with friends on AOL
Instant Messenger, talking to a friend on Yahoo Messenger, and sitting in an
IRC channel all at the same time.

Finch supports many features of the various networks, such as file transfer
(coming soon), away messages, typing notification, and MSN window closing
notification. It also goes beyond that and provides many unique features. A
few popular features are Buddy Pounces, which give the ability to notify you,
send a message, play a sound, or run a program when a specific buddy goes away,
signs online, or returns from idle; and plugins, consisting of text
replacement, a buddy ticker, extended message notification, iconify on away,
and more.

Update to 2.1.0.

libpurple:
* Core changes to allow UIs to use second-granularity for scheduling. Pidgin and
Finch, which use the glib event loop, were changed to use
g_timeout_add_seconds() on glib >= 2.14 when possible. This allows glib to
better group our longer timers to increase power fficiency. (Arjan van de Ven
with Intel Corporation)
* No longer linkifies screennames containing @ signs in join/part notifications
in chats
* With the HTML logger, images in conversations are now saved. NOTE: Saved
images are not yet displayed when loading logs.
* Added support for QIP logs to the Log Reader plugin (Michael Shkutkov)

Pidgin:
* Ensure only one copy of Pidgin is running with a given configuration
directory. The net effect of this is that trying to start Pidgin a second time
will raise the buddy list. (Gabriel Schulhof)
* Undo capability in the conversation window
* The formatting toolbar has been reorganized to be more concise.
* A new status area has been added to the top of conversations to provide
additional detail about the buddy, including buddy icon, protocol and status
message.
* Show idle times in the buddy list as days, hours, seconds

Finch:
* There's support for workspaces now (details in the manpage)
* There's a new custom window manager, Irssi
* Some improvements for tab-completion, tooltip and the password entries
* Some bugs regarding search results fixed
* A new DBus-script to create a docklet for finch
* Support for showing empty groups in the buddy list (Eric Polino)
