Text mode menu- and window-driven IM interface
CenterIM is a fork of CenterICQ.
CenterIM is a text mode menu- and window-driven IM interface that supports the ICQ2000, Yahoo!, MSN, Gadu-Gadu and IRC protocols as well as posting to LiveJournal aggregating RSS feeds.
It allows you to send, receive, and forward messages, URLs, SMSes, contacts, and email express messages. It also lets you set your own and fetch others’ away messages, and define external handlers for incoming events. You can mass message-send, search for users, view users’ details, maintain your contact list directly from the program, view the message history, register a new UIN and update your details, be informed upon receipt of email messages, automatically set away after the defined period of inactivity, and have your own ignore, visible, and invisible lists. It can also associate events with sounds, make log of events, and allows arrangement of contacts into groups.
The development of CenterIM is currently quite active, but is still happy to find more users helping with contributing bug reports, suggestions, feedback and code. If you’re interested in joining our community, feel free to inform about our mailing lists on the CenterIM homepage or on #centerim at the Freenode IRC.
