Wengo stopped developing wengophone

Some disappointing news today: Wengo stopped developing Wengophone, the VoIP SIP and XMPP/Jabber multiplatform client.’ ’  They announced it in the developer’s mailing list.

Update: the’ development of OpenWengo software has been taken over’ by an experienced Wengo programmer.

I wonder why Google isn’t contributing its gtalk code to free software projects like Kopete, Gaim or Adium: they use an open standard (XMPP) and they should have all interests to increase their user base.’  My quest for a free software alternative to Skype continues.
