Release Notes: When you change the colors, it will immediatly be activated. This release uses a package for the config file. It uses plain text, which makes editing a lot easier. A small bug was fixed, but this code was not used yet. The client is now also shipped with a JAR file.
Release Notes: In this version, sound support has been added so that users are now able to hear who calls. The RIC Client plays user defined audio files. The layout of all the files has been improved. When the connection is lost to the RIC server, the client will reconnect automatically. With a startup parameter you can tell it which config file to use. This makes it possible to use RIC from a shared resource. Some annoying bugs were also fixed.
Release Notes: When an RIC client receives a messages from the server, it now pops up and shows the detail screen automatically. The server now has a test mode if you use the test parameter on startup. This mode makes it possible to test the server on a Windows machine. Some documentation has been updated.
Release Notes: Support for seeing who is online, relaying messages with TCP/IP, and popping up ISDN calls with isdn4all was added. The protocol now implements version control to ensure compatibility with future versions.
Release Notes: The connect and disconnect buttons now control your personal state. All users simply connect and disconnect. The server controls the real connection; when nobody is connected, it will hang up. When someone else connects, users will get an MSN slide up message with "Internet Connection Available". Lots of small things have been added, like colors in the systray and a date in the text window. The Java server needs the new Java client.
