The Sim-IM Project was born to bring back development of SIM. Vladimir Shutoff, the author of SIM have abandoned project (or maybe just took some vacation) SIM development and project were almost dead for about 2 years.
Sim-IM Team consists of people who like this program and want project to be alive. Many team members are members of old project on Sourceforge. Our goal is to continue further development of SIM-IM.
The development of Sim-IM have got stuck. A great work were made to release Sim-IM 0.9.4, and notable progress were made with Sim-IM 0.9.5, but for now most of the developers have left Sim-IM project (or may be also took some vacation ;-)).
