Plug-in based instant messaging system

Kopete is a multiple protocol instant messaging system designed as a plugin-based system. All protocols are plugins and allow modular installation, configuration, and usage without the main application knowing anything about the plugin being loaded. Kopete's goal is to provide users with a standard, simple interface between all of their instant messaging systems, while also giving developers an easy wasy to write plugins to support a new protocol. The core Kopete development team provides a handful of plugins that most users can use and templates for new developers to base a plugin on.
