KXicq2, the ICQ client for KDE

KXicq is the KDE ICQ client, KXicq2 is written for KDE 2 and KDE 3, but also works with other Window Managers like Gnome, Window Maker ( with Docking !) and others. KXicq2 uses the new ICQ protocol version 7, which has much less problems that the old protocol and it can be used behind firewalls ( it can use socks ).
