Release Notes: There was a problem in which buddies in your buddy list did not get their status updated if you did not match white space and case formatting in the exact same way as the buddy. This has been fixed.
Release Notes: A buddy list display problem on low res consoles was fixed and an option to IM people from the command line was added (for shell scripting).
Release Notes: The buddy list now formats properly on low resolution consoles, creating profiles no longer creates a randomly named directory in your home directory, the reliability of the buddy list refresh routine has been improved, and the buddy client class has been made viewable.
Release Notes: This release adds commandline options to specify whether or not to save the profile password, a correctly-working "/query" command, and fixes for the problems of buddy log times corrupting the buddy list display and creating a new profile generating a corrupted config file.
Release Notes: Bonim has been ported from C to C++. A command to disable sign on/off alerts was added. The help command was improved. Minor stability bug fixes were made.
