tkabber [options]


Tkabber is a GUI client for XMPP (Jabber) instant messaging protocol. It provides full support for basic XMPP specifications as well as many extensions (XEPs) including multi-user conferencing, file transfers, extensive handling of privacy lists and much more. Tkabber is written in Tcl/Tk and thus is easily extensible.
