A new GTK+ fobbit_monitor module was released today to enhance the usefullness of Fobbit by giving it a friendly user interface.
And besides .. I was getting tired of browsing through my files to see who called or to see my speed dial settings.

Now it's all just a click away!! :) "See screenshots"

A fobbit_monitor rpm is soon to follow.

Fobbit-0.61 released

Linux 2.6 kernel support has now been achieved!

So far stability has been promising, but this release has not been completely tested yet. We hope that anyone who comes across a bug, etc. will post it in the forums.

Fobbit 0.60rc1

Now supports end-to-end encryption via Blowfish, minimize to tray, and includes redhat startup scripts.

This is a release-candidate that we took from the latest CVS snapshot. It has not been fully tested, but we are releasing it as most people don't hit the CVS tree and we need some beta testers!

Coming soon!

Just to keep people on the edge of their seats, here's what we have planned:

Encryption -- end to end Blowfish (for now) encryption to keep those chats secure! Talk about your boss (not encouraged)...:> completely backwards compatible

OS X port (beta). Working port is coming. We'll need beta testers!

v0.57 released

We've released v0.57 of fobbit today. This is a milestone, as it's our first release since David Stanhope's sources were first imported into Sourceforge. This new release adds the ability to minimize fobbit to the system tray in Windows.

Stay tuned, much more is coming, including encrypted sessions!
