The Scw Widgets
While not exactly a choice for end-users, I like to consider the developers of chat applications as users of Scw. After all, the developers need to have a nice API to make coding with Scw a pleasant experience, which is one of the goals kept in mind while developing Scw. I also want to acknowledge the brave souls that have used the Scw widgets and (probably) sent suggestions and bug reports (and even patches!) and thank them. The following projects are known to have used Scw widgets:
The Scw library is released under the LGPL license. This makes it available for use, modifications and distribution freely, provided that the license terms are met. This includes commercial "closed-sourced" products.
The current version is 0.4. Try it out and complain, because it won't get any better if you don't.
It's still undecided if there will be binary packages made available, as this is mainly interesting to developers. It is probably best that different distributors create their own packaging as they see fit, since one package doesn't really fit all at any level these days.
Distribution support status:
Also the Python and Ruby bindings have Debian packaging. I'll update them to the download list after they are a little more sorted out.
Win32 is semi-supported now, but no binaries for that either (yet).
Here is Scw on the Nokia N800:
