In addition, Gaim supports logging on to multiple accounts at the same time, on any or all of the supported protocols.
The current version of Gaim for Linux/BSD/Mac OS X is v.0.67. The current version of Gaim for Windows is 0.67.
There are many different plugins that can be attached to Gaim to extend its functionality. Some of these include a spell checker, an encryption plugin, and a remote control, so that Gaim can be controlled by another computer.
