* Massive stability enhancement on Mac and Linux - including hundreds
of bug fixes.
* Migration to the CMake build system (as used by the KDE project) is complete
* Several usability improvements make OpenWengo even nicer to use

Major functionality already present in the 2.0 release includes:

* Free computer-to-computer phone and video calls using the industry
standard SIP protocol
* Organise three-way audio conferences
* Cheap calls to fixed lines and mobile phones worldwide, including
sending SMSes, thanks to our partnership with the Wengo SIP platform
* Unify all of your instant messaging accounts in one client, and talk
to all your buddies without changing applications
