There is a "Gabber2" project but it is in the early stages.

Personally I think it might be faster to port Exodus/JOPL [1] to Linux
using Kylix or see if there are GTK bindings that would enable someone to
port Nitro/Acid [2] to Linux (or pursue the latter via GNUStep), rather
than build Gabber2 from scratch. These are both modern, well-architected
client + library combinations that could provide a strong foundation for a
modern Linux client. But my coding skills are legendary (i.e., legendary
for being weak) so I'm not the one to do it. Any takers?
