Tails natively ships with a #XMPP client. Currently Pidgin.
For security reason Tails is going to replace it.
Some research about them and Tails requirements you can read here:
(keep in mind that it's a living paper)
@tails As the maintainer of Pidgin I would greatly appreciate it if you would elaborate on these so called "security reasons" as the website you linked is down.
@grimmy Sorry for that late respond, but can I ask you to direct your question to Tails developer email list?
To join the email list: https://tails.boum.org/about/contact/index.en.html#tails-dev
@tails my question is pretty clear and I don't see why I should have to sign up on your mailing list when you're spreading fud about my project...
This is an unoffical account, maintained by a volunteer. I could send messages between you and the devs back and forth, but while just sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org will facilitate that, I'm more comfortable if you'd write an email to email@example.com
@tails and I'd be more comfortable if people would send legitimate security issues to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be handled responsibly. But instead people choose to spread rumors about pidgin/libpurple out into the world with no evidence.. Guess we can't all get what we want huh?
What's a "good history of vulnerabilities" ?
The kernel you're running is also rewitten in the same unsafe language.
"often has to parse untrusted undocumented protocols" truth
"other clients are more actively maintained" previously true, not so much right now.
"development of many plugins have been stagnant for years" for example?
@waweic @dino @gajim You can do this today, using the "dotfiles" function.
