Well, I have a new jabber client (For now).
Kopete (don't ask me how to pronounce it) is a mutli-protocol KDE IM client. I've got all my contacts re-worked to work with it, but I'm not sure if I like it yet or not. This also means I'll have to rework my IM log importer to work with its logs, but oh well.
Also, in order for SSL to work with Kopete's Jabber plugin, you need a module called QSSL. It appears that this is provided by PSI (which it also seems is where Kopete gets its Jabber plugin), however the QSSL RPM that is available is designed to work only with PSI (it puts it in a strange place), and also is compiled against different libraries. I took the liberty of recompiling the SRPM to work for RedHat 8.0 as well as put the library in a more centralized location that Kopete can also access. If anybody would like it, feel free to email me.
