Poezio is a free console XMPP
client (the protocol on which the Jabber IM
network is built).
Its goal is to let you connect very easily (no account creation needed) to the network and join various chatrooms, immediately. It tries to look like the most famous IRC clients (weechat, irssi, etc). Many commands are identical and you won't be lost if you already know these clients. Configuration can be made in a configuration file or directly from the client.
You'll find the light, fast, geeky and anonymous spirit of IRC while using a new, powerful, standard and open protocol.
Do not hesitate to download
the last stable version.

Oct 17th 2011:
Poezio is now using git. Please update your package, sources, scripts, etc.
If your are using the mercurial version, with the method described on the download page (and you should be), please redo the complete instructions, or you won’t be able to update the sources by keeping only the mercurial repository.
Also read my blog post if you want to know the reasons of the migration.
