The new KDE Telepathy arrives with new features

The KDE Telepathy team has released version 0.6.0 of KDE Telepathy (KTp), KDE’s instant messaging suite. This release brings many, as usual, bug fixes and new features. Telepathy allows a user to interact with users from different services such as Gtalk or Facebook. Since it’s a KDE project it offers great integration with the desktop by providing plasmoids and runner interfaces as well as providing the traditional contact list and chatting application.

What’s new?
The new Telepathy brings ‘better text editing’ and the chat window now features tab completion for group chats, as well as text navigation for editing messages.

KTp now supports setting different notifications for each of your contacts. This means it is possible to set an optional notification if your favourite friends come online, or play sounds when messages arrive from certain contacts but not others.

KTp shows an icon in the contact list when a new message arrives, change the icon in the system tray, and for group chats show who is typing.

There is more under the hood, which improves the core functionalists:

Text messages can be formatted in bold or italics

Youtube links are show and can be played directly in your chat window

Links to bugzilla are shown inline with the bug title and resolution

When sending messages can use your KDE webshortcuts to make it quicker to send links

Messages containing your name are highlighted and a special notification with sound can be emitted. This is especially useful if you lurk in conference rooms

KDE Telepathy 0.6.0 is already available for all major distributions and you can install/upgrade it with ease.
