Two upstream packages are essential for KDE-Telepathy to work.
- telepathy-qt4 >= LATEST (currently 0.7.4, Build and Runtime Dependency)
- telepathy-mission-control >= 5.7.9 (Runtime Dependency)
We're also using some bits from kdelibs 4.7.0 (Build and Runtime Dependency).
- telepathy-gabble 0.13.7 (for Jabber support, including Google Talk and Facebook, might very probably crash with earlier versions)
- telepathy-haze (for all the other protocols, as supported by libpurple).
The different components of KDE-Telepathy are housed in separate git repositories on projects.kde.org. Some of these components are currently recommended to use. Others are not yet ready to be installed by users.
These components have reached a level of maturity where they are interesting to users. We recommend providing these components at the current time.

Note about accounts-kcm-plugins
Our 0.1.0 release had an extra package called telepathy-kde-accounts-kcm-plugins. These plugins have now been merged to the main telepathy-kde-accounts-kcm package and are no longer shipped separately.
The latest release is the 0.2.0 alpha release.
Tarballs can be found at the KDE ftp mirrors: http://download.kde.org/download.php?url=unstable/telepathy-kde/0.2.0/src/
