YTalk

Compatible multi-user `talk' client

Metawire.org has recently taken over maintenance of YTalk. It was originally written by Britt Yenne in 1990. After a long time of no new releases after 3.0pl2 in 1993, Roger Llima had taken over maintenance, maintaining it until 2003 and releasing YTalk 3.1 and 3.1.1.

About

YTalk is a multi-user replacement for the original UNIX talk. Talking to others, your screen is split into multiple regions, one for each talk partner. Your input, and that of other users, is immediately seen by all participants.

You can see the changelog and the list of things to do, which is still uncomfortably long, and growing. The current version of YTalk is YTalk 3.1.2.

YTalk is compatible with older versions, it can be used with the same talk daemon and you can chat with users of the original talk. You can log your conversations to files, drop into a shell which allows your friends to see your operations, and other things. More features are being added!
