naim is the original ncurses (console) AIM client, which also supports IRC, ICQ, and Lily CMC. For AIM and ICQ, it uses the TOC protocol, and includes many commonly-requested features found nowhere else, while still preserving naim's classic look and feel.

Release Notes: /ctcp was fixed. Away messages can appear in UTF-16 encoding as well as profiles, so both are decoded now.
Release Notes: Simple heuristics were added for disabling encryption. Availability messages and profile and away message retrieval were added. A workaround was made for empty hyperlinks sent by the official AIM client.
Release Notes: A minor adjustment was made to automatic away message discovery. This quells the erroneous messages which said, "Server response was formatted incorrectly, can't find username in info HTML."
Release Notes: Preliminary support was added for having multiple clients connected to the same screen name on AIM. <br/> is now treated as a synonym for <br>. Your .naimrc can now use the modload command.
Release Notes: The IRC driver now accepts incoming lines that end in a naked "\n". /delbuddy did not always correctly remove the user from your server-side buddy list. If you had a user with the same friendly name as another user's account name, naim would become unstable when the second user signed on. The status bar now displays typing notifications. Warning levels are now displayed. There is a new /setpriv command to modify your privacy settings. IPv6 support has been modernized and enabled. Friendly names are now stored to and retrieved from your server-side buddy list.
