Those people anxiously waiting for the next release of Gaim, the cross-platform, cross-protocol instant messaging client, should know that they do not have long to wait. From an email sent to the gaim-devel mailing list late on Sunday night, Gaim developer Mark Doliner asks that his fellow developers stop adding new features and strings to the current development version of Gaim. He also writes that the final product will be done soon:

Let's aim to have everything translated and bugfixed in three weeks. If we need more time then we can push back the release a little. Today is February 12th. Let's try to have everything finished by March 5th.

This is good news for fans of Gaim, as version 2.0.0 will include several new features, including support for Bonjour local network messaging and better file transfers.
