    Just a brief note, gaim-vv is completely dead now. Now work will be taking place on our cvs tree. We're close to making the merge with gaim's 2.x development tree.

      Last I heard, voice and video were no longer slated for the 2.0 release of gaim. What then? Why doesnt someone update this site?   I think many of us are really hoping to have voice and video in gaim and since gaim 2 won't have it, we would like gaim-vv developers to continue working on gaim-vv and to make releases... if that is possible.

        It's been dead for so long many of the users (myself included) have given up on it.  I don't know why they don't just declare the project officially dead and be done with it.

      This is a shame.. that it seems that video is NEVER mentioned in any official communiques anymore on the main branch..

      How about for the summer of code stuff they put video in?
