centericq

centericq is a text mode menu- and window-driven IM interface that supports the ICQ2000, Yahoo!, AIM, IRC, MSN, Gadu-Gadu, and Jabber protocols. It allows you to send, receive, and forward messages, URLs, SMSes (both through the ICQ server and email gateways supported by Mirabilis), contacts, and email express messages, and it has many other useful features. An internal RSS reader and a LiveJournal client are also provided.

  •  02 Sep 2005 09:50

Release Notes: AIM changed its protocol again, so all TOC clients did not work. This release fixes the inability to connect to the AIM network. Some Jabber bugs were fixed. PGP works better, and it's also possible to connect to Google Talk. Chat window cycling and coloring of contacts according to the protocol were added.

  •  02 Feb 2005 21:02

Release Notes: PGP encryption support was implemented for the Jabber module. The RTF parser used for processing messages from Windows ICQ clients was fixed. A problem with logging on to Yahoo! on Sun Sparc machines was fixed, which may also resolve an issue with Gadu-Gadu on big-endian architectures. Several other small bugfixes were made.

  •  18 Jan 2005 19:34

Release Notes: This release fixes a problem where the 'u' letter was eaten by the RTF parser when processing messages from Windows ICQ clients. A memory leak problem when checking RSS was fixed. The Gadu-Gadu module no longer produces a segfault when it was unable to obtain a registration token from the server. A small patch was applied so that it's now possible to start centericq with all protocols set to offline. Another type of external event was added. Users can now execute actions when someone goes offline.

  •  19 Dec 2004 20:57

Release Notes: The client now builds with GCC 3.4. A new --debug command line parameter was added, making it unnecessary to re-build the program to enable debug output. IRC accounts can now include two passwords: one for Nickserv and the other one for regular IRC authentication. Online and free-for-chat modes now have the same priority in contact list sorting. Unicode characters in RTF-encoded ICQ messages are no longer lost. A segfault that occurred when accepting Yahoo! file transfers was fixed. For online users, the time for which those contacts have been online is now shown.

  •  28 Sep 2004 06:37

Release Notes: The MSN group management problem was fixed. The source no longer fails to compile when the SSL library is not found during the build. Jabber server messages no longer come from a nick that is similar to the server name with an "@" sign at the end. The --no-xtitles (-T) commmand line parameter was added, which disables changing window titles in xterm and screen. An LJ bug, in which the LJ contact got garbled if the whole friends name list grew larger than 512, was fixed. The configure script now checks if libcurl has SSL support enabled in order to avoid MSN malfunction.

Great, great, great...
Great program, this is.

Except the little part when i type scandinavian ä / ö / å in msn, centericq adds one extra space between the cursor and the place where cursor really is. It goes like this ( big C - letter means "the blinking part which represents cursor", _ is space ):

abcdC

abcdä_C

abcdäö__C

abcdäöå___C

new line resets the cursors place. A little bug, but annoying. I'm using centericq-utf8, codepage conversion settings: remote UTF-8, local UTF-8, version 4.21.0-2ubuntu1.1, gnome/xcfe4, ubuntu.

though i really should give a look for the source, hmz...
