News and Latest Releases

  • 2014-09-30 Website backend update
    Yeah. I finally managed to find the time to upgrade this website to the newest mediawiki software. If you find any bugs caused by that update, please contact Frank Altpeter (talk).


CenterIM is a text-mode multi-protocol instant messaging client for Linux, *BSD, Solaris and other Unices. The program supports most of widely used IM protocols, including AIM, ICQ, IRC, MSN, QQ, XMPP (Jabber), Yahoo.

CenterIM is a powerful communication tool that can be used through SSH, without the need for VNC/Remote Desktop. CenterIM started as a fork of CenterICQ.

Development has ceased on CenterIM4 in favor of CenterIM5, which is a ground up rewrite and uses the libpurple library as a communication backend. Alpha/beta releases are ongoing and becoming feature complete. If you would like to give CenterIM5 a try, please see the building page for instructions.

Communication is managed via the developers and users mailing lists and on #centerim on irc.freenode.net. Bugs can be reported on the developers mailing list.

If you are interested in how to contribute patches or source code, please read the contribution guidelines.
