Oct 07, 2005 - Forward potr of gaim-vv 1.2.0 to gaim cvs head is working. I would like to clarify that gaim-vv isn't completely dead, we're working on merging with gaim. There will be no further gaim-vv releases, as code will be added to the main gaim program.
Sep 21, 2005 - Delayed announcement that gaim-vv is dead. All is not lost, though, as we're in the process of forward porting to gaim 2.x. Yes! This means we're aiming to include -vv abilities to the next major release of gaim! Subsequently, gaim-vv is no longer directly supported, and only lib2k and gstj2k will be supported.
Mar 29, 2005 - gst-jpeg2000 released.

What is gaim-vv?
