Two things have happened recently to the Nomatic*Gaim project. The first is that the architecture of the software has changed to support multiple IM clients besides gaim. The second is that under lawsuit duress, gaim has renamed themselves to pidgin.
As a result, the project formerly known as Nomatic*Gaim is now renamed Nomatic (for presence). The parentheses are to differentiate it from Nomatic*Aid which is also rapidly evolving, but for now retains the same name.
