Libpurple's MSN supports multiple sign-in !

Yes this is what I have been waiting for all along! I was using Empathy today, signed on on MSN with the libpurple(telepathy-haze) backend. Then I realized that the Empathy was not signed out when I signed in on another Windows computer! Finally! FOSS peeps just rocks ;).


  1. Curious thing: This support has actually been present in the Butterfly (telepathy-butterfly) backend for a while already (a couple of months now, I think); and it supports a few extra bonus features over the Haze backend as well.

    I’d suggest switching backends; see http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/wiki/Haze%20vs%20Butterfly for why :)

  2. Yeah! I waiting it for my Pidgin...

  3. @kepstin: I switched to telepathy-haze because of some problems present in telepathy-butterfly earlier on... but I will switch back to see if those bugs are fixed. Thanks kepstin for the info.
