The Telepathy framework is a DBus specification which provides a cross-desktop and cross-protocol abstraction layer for instant messaging, voice/video over IP and collaborative applications. See the Telepathy web site for more information about Telepathy itself.
This project is focused on integrating Telepathy with KDE. Our high-level aims are the following:
- to provide a unified instant messaging and voice/video communication framework within KDE, which integrates throughout the desktop experience.
- to provide collaborative features in applications which fit seemlessly into the KDE platform
- to provide the infrastructure within KDE necessary to acheive the above two, using cross-desktop specifications and implementations wherever possible.
