    Release Notes: The code has been updated to use MSNP9 (the latest MSN protocol). This is important because apparently as of October 15th, Microsoft are removing all protocol support for MSNP 8 and below. This new protocol is more secure and requires less bandwidth. It also supports GPG, and work is progressing on integrating that.

        Release Notes: This release adds file sending, context-sensitive tab completion, an active window list that turns bold when someone has said something (then back to normal when you're typing), a /save feature to let you save the contents of window buffers, and lots of bugfixes and performance improvements.

        •  23 Jan 2002 17:01

          Release Notes: Those silly "user is typing" messages were removed, and were replaced with a bar for each user which changes color when a user types. The program now sends user-is-typing messages. /eval and /exec support was added. Lots of bugfixes, enhancements, and optimizations were made.

          •  20 Jan 2002 17:12

            Release Notes: Line-editing, scrollback on chat sessions, and window buffers were added. Stability was improved and some old bugs were fixed. Some new commands and responses were added to the MSN module.

            Chartsets?
            Does jMSN support non english charsets? I use jMSN in spanish and catalan but i can't see the non-english characters that the other person types.

            BTW, great job with the program!

            a new setting in .jMSN.conf that would
            allow you to put it in a non-quiet mode
            would be cool, so you got a ^G on new
            message and stuff.

            tab nick-completion would be cool as well.....and the alias thing
            would rock :)

            Yeah, the /alias thing would be quite tricky, it would more likly be done in perl. As for people with long screenames, you can truncuate the sceenames to X chars at max in the config file, I use 30 chars, but depending on your screen estate, you may want more or less.
