EB-lite is the name of the rewrite that is being developed of the instant messaging client Everybuddy. EB-lite carries many major advances on the current codebase, the biggest of which is that the user interface is not contained in the same process as the core. How would you like to use the same messaging client everywhere - on your desktop, your console, your browser, even your mobile phone?
This is all possible because eb-lite allows interfaces written on any platform, in any language - they do not even have to run on the same machine. Any number of user interfaces can also connect to the same core.
Here are some key features of "EB lite":
Free software, distributed under the GPL.
Supports the following IM protocols:
Group chat (IRC, MSN, AIM, ICQ)
Automatic translation (using Babelfish)
SOCKS and (to a lesser extent) HTTP proxy support
Modular structure allows different interfaces to share the same engine (and thus share preferences, contact lists, etc).
Message queuing (including across UI sessions)
Cross-platform code. The core is written almost entirely in ANSI C, making it easy to port to different operating systems. Although mainly developed on Linux, it will also build on other Unixes (including Mac OS X) and Windows.
