Empathy 3.0 will finally include ‘user blocking/unblocking ‘ – a feature long demanded by users of the multi-protocol chat application.
Various new GUI elements are introduced to support the features including a ‘blocked contacts’ manager, menu entries and even the option to block people (service dependant) without the need to add them first!
Users should note that blocking will only work on chat services that support it (Google Chat, MSN, Yahoo, etc.).
