I have been a GAIM user for years and 2.0 seemed like a breath of fresh air. But it has now gone through 5 betas in over a year. New features have been added, yet I find it no more stable now in beta 5 than it was in beta 2.

"It features an 8051 core and RAM/ROM memory featuring the HID bluetooth profile and stack. Any chance they used a flash part that we can hack instead of the masked ROM (un-changeable) version? Highly unlikely. But lemme know if someone figures out how to get into the core. The small crystal is 24MHz. They make it look so easy don't they?""
