Having used KTP for a whiole now, I do like it overall. I mostly use it for 
Yahoo so have not  yet tried out video calls.

I am not sure if it does so when installed, but I recall having to add the 
Presence widget to the tray. The tray icons could be better somehow maybe. I 
know the history feature is new, so I assume this will see some improvements.
Overall the IM client works very well. It has been relaible for me, does  not 
have the random Yahoo disconnects I used to see in Kopete. KTP does lack some 
features as compared to Kopete, but I personally do not use many of them.
