October 25 2010 -- The KMess team announces today the availability of the
latest release of KMess: KMess 2.0.5, the newest version of the Live
Messenger (MSN) client, powered by the KDE platform. As usual with our
2.0 point releases, it contains a lot of bug fixes, but also general
improvements, and even some new features. Here is a quick highlight of
the changes in this new version:

  * KMess now displays your previous conversation with a contact in
    the chat window.
  * Significantly increased speed whilst loading chat history.
  * Added a calendar feature to the chat history dialog.
  * Added a button to the chat window to quickly access the chat
    history of contacts in the conversation.
  * Added notifications for address book changes (contact added,
    removed, blocked, etc).
  * Updated the Traditional Chinese translation.
  * Updated the Estonian translation.
  * Updated the Hungarian translation.
  * Updated the French translation.
