BIM is a Java based AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) Client featuring a full feature Swing GUI. BIM also comes with encryption support. It has a small code base (617KB w/encryption libs) and can be easily dropped and run on wide array of operating systems.
The BeOS Instant Messaging Kit project aims to create a BeOS-centric, generic instant messaging servuice for workstations. The system will follow the BeOS kits/servers model, and different IM protocols will be supported through add-ons to the im_server,
The goal of this project is to create a new peer-to-peer system that is capable of supporting instant messaging, encryption, and secure sharing.
