0001 ============= 0002 telepathy-qt 0003 ============= 0004 0005 This is a library for Qt-based Telepathy clients and services. 0006 0007 Telepathy is a D-Bus framework for unifying real time communication, 0008 including instant messaging, voice calls and video calls. It abstracts 0009 differences between protocols to provide a unified interface for 0010 applications. See the Telepathy website for more information: 0011 0012 http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/ 0013 0014 Telepathy specification 0015 ======================= 0016 0017 The copy of the Telepathy specification in the spec/ directory indicates 0018 the specification that this library claims to implement. The HTML documentation for the latest version of the specification can be viewed at: 0019 0020 http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/spec/ 0021 0022 Requirements 0023 ============ 0024 0025 Building telepathy-qt requires: 0026 Qt (DBus, Network and Xml for the library; Gui and Widgets are required for some examples) <https://www.qt.io> 0027 0028 CMake <https://cmake.org/> 0029 pkg-config <https://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/> 0030 Python 3 <https://www.python.org/> 0031 0032 For the full set of regression tests to run, you'll also need: 0033 telepathy-glib <https://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-glib/> 0034 0035 For building the Farsight convenience library, you'll need: 0036 telepathy-glib <https://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-glib/> 0037 telepathy-farsight <https://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-farsight/> 0038 GStreamer <https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/> 0039 0040 and to build the Farstream convenience library, you'll need: 0041 telepathy-glib <https://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-glib/> 0042 telepathy-farstream <https://telepathy.freedesktop.org/releases/telepathy-farstream/> 0043 farstream <https://freedesktop.org/software/farstream/releases/> 0044 GStreamer <https://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/> 0045 0046 See CMakeLists.txt for full details, including versions required. 0047 Of the packages listed above, only Qt libraries are required at runtime. 0048 0049 Bugs, feature requests and to-do list 0050 ===================================== 0051 0052 Report all bugs, feature requests and "to-do" items here: 0053 <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Telepathy&component=tp-qt> 0054 0055 Running "make check" will produce FIXME.out, which lists all the mentions of 0056 FIXME, TODO or XXX in the source code. Ideally, all of these should be in 0057 Bugzilla, but sometimes they're not. 0058 0059 API stability policy 0060 ==================== 0061 0062 We use an "odd/even" versioning scheme where the minor version (the y in 0063 x.y.z) determines stability - stable branches have y even, development 0064 branches have y odd. 0065 0066 In a stable (even) branch, we will not make incompatible API or ABI changes 0067 between one release tarball and the next. 0068 0069 In a development (odd) branch, if we make incompatible ABI changes 0070 between one release tarball and the next, we will change the SONAME of the 0071 library; we will attempt to avoid incompatible API or ABI changes. 0072 0073 Unreleased builds straight from git identify themselves as version 0074 "x.y.z.1". We DO NOT make any API guarantees about unreleased builds: 0075 any binary relying on new functionality from an unreleased build is not 0076 guaranteed to work with any subsequent release or unreleased build, and on 0077 platforms with versioned symbols (mainly Linux) it definitely won't work with 0078 subsequent releases (you'll have to at least relink the binary). 0079 We do not increment SONAMEs on the basis of unreleased changes. 0080 0081 Unreleased builds are compiled with -Werror, so they might stop working 0082 if your gcc version issues more warnings than ours. If this is a problem 0083 for you, use a release tarball. 0084 0085 Contact info 0086 ============ 0087 0088 This library is maintained by the Telepathy project: 0089 <https://github.com/TelepathyIM> 0090 <https://telepathy.freedesktop.org> 0091 <mailto:email@example.com> 0092 <irc://irc.freenode.net/telepathy> 0093 0094 Telepathy development was supported by Collabora Ltd. 0095 <http://www.collabora.co.uk/>. 0096 0097 Hacking 0098 ======= 0099 0100 See HACKING for version control, coding style and patch submission information.
