Jabbim – for a better Jabber/XMPP

Jabbim client

Jabbim is a client for communication over XMPP/Jabber protocol, written in the Python language using Qt (4.3), PyQt (4.3) and Pyxl library, which is a part of the client. The aim of the Jabbim client is to make Jabber approachable for common people, so it is a client for common users and beginners. Because of this philosophy the Jabbim client might not suit everyone.[1]

Jabbim runs on Windows, and mostly all flavours of GNU/Linux. Its current stable version is 0.4.3 and it claim to provide the following in this version. So we cannot expect much from it but seems a clean one to try at least.
