Updating from windows 98
When we finally got around to doing this new release today, we decided to skip the 0.98.2 version and go directly to 0.98.3 to avoid any confusion, because *maybe* someone downloaded the 0.98.2 source package at some point when it was available, maybe some distributions noticed the tag in SVN and started to ship that version.. For Linux users, autopackage support was dropped as well, since the autopackage project seemed to be dead and most distributions already supply a MSN anyway. Hi everyone, As some of you will notice, the news on the front page of the a MSN website have slightly changed. We’ve also decided to change the old system of posting news on the website, that system was very old and very hard to use, that’s why we weren’t posting a lot of news to it.
So to avoid having two possible versions of a MSN with the same version number, we released 0.98.3! But hopefully, with this new system, everything will change!
On the Curses frontend, you can only see your contact list, but you won't be able to chat. I plan on writing a blog post on why it's broken and how we may fix it. We also use codaset to deal with bugs and timelines.
The EFF also has a “Coder’s Rights project” that defend developers like us.
It contains several bugfixes, including the bug which made you unable to read Offline Messages. As some of you might know, this year again, we’d like to participate in the Google Summer of Code program.
First, there was this egyptian TV show where the girl actually said that she uses “a MSN” and that it allows her to see if someone deleted her.. It also apparently appeared in a spanish TV show too, and it will also appear in a movie in the near future! I’m just blogging to say that a MSN 0.98 will soon be released..
When we get more details, I’ll be posting up some videos and screenshots! it’s not yet ready, but we’re working on the final little details in order to make it stable! To answer popular demand, I’ve created this blog so we can keep our users more informed on what’s going on…
We will soon release 0.98.2 as it is long overdue now, and we want to let people know why their A/V calls are not available to them anymore.
I hope everybody will understand why this is happening and we won’t get flooded by n00b questions everyday… It’s been over a year since the release of 0.97.2, and “good things come to those who wait”: audio conference, video conference, chat while appearing offline, full ink (handwriting) support, MSN games support (only tic-tac-toe for now), a new protocol version, and of course, your favorite bugfixes!
