I have an issue in that I cannot pull up my contact list in Empathy when I have conversation windows open. I have to literally close all my conversations before it will let me pull up the contact list. I really hope there is a way around this. Also, I like the integration of Empathy into the status menu in the upper right hand corner, but I wish there were more options than Available/Unavailable. Being able to set Away and Invisible from there would be nice.

To bring the Contact List back right-click on the Empathy icon in the dash and select "New Window"

Can you be a little more specific? I use Empathy too. I've added it to my dash in Gnome3 to make it easily accessible. Even when I have conversation windows open, I can click the icon in the dash to bring up my contact list. I cannot however, use the notification area to bring up the dash. It seems the notifications have not been designed to bring up the contact list, only the conversation.

About the status updates, I don't know first hand, but I think they're working on it. Do check and file a bug.
