Ubuntu Messaging Menu support remains non-functional in this release.

The next major update to Polly, version 0.94, is currently in development, and sees the application ported over to GTK3.

While Polly is badged by its developer as being of ‘pre-alpha’ quality it is perfectly useable on a daily basis.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:conscioususer/polly-unstable

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install polly
