TiK is a pure TCL/Tk implementation of AOL Instant Messenger (AIM). It has most of the features the native Win32 and Mac clients have, plus some extras. It includes a graphical buddy list display, full font support, graphical emoticons, away messages, buddy pounce, buddy ticker, IM/Chat capturing, message broadcasting, a GUI preferences system, and much more. TiK's expandable nature allows the addition of new features through packages.

Release Notes: Selective package loading has been added. Quotes no longer break instant messages. Font scale numbers have been changed to take up less room. Many tik functions now use tik_filters. Google search options have been added. tik_play_sound no longer gives an error if the soundfile doesn't exist. prefs no longer overwrites user rc files. The AOL away bug, bbar resizing in chat, an offline toc communication bug, a chat user list bug, and the inability to copy from text areas in Windows have all been fixed. A version notification system and auto updating info have been added.
Release Notes: Your current tikrc and tikpre files should be backed up before using this version. The permissions on the configDir were changed to 0600 to prevent local users from obtaining your password. A GUI preferences system was added. Tooltips were added. The "packages" directory has been split and rearranged, such that you must either do a clean install or rearrange the directories by hand to conform to the new setup. There is also a new 'installwindow' that pops up the first time TiK is opened if it cannot detect a config directory.
Release Notes: Added instant message remote administration server and gui. Now saves non-normalized names in .config files. Added away msg delay. Added away msg nicks. Offline group now optional. Added silent away mode. Fixed tikrc option of putting 'Help' menu in Packages menu. Made some of the .wav files smaller using sox. Offline group now optional. Away now unregisters on window close. Exporting a buddy list immediately after editing the list works. Miscellaneous other fixes.
Release Notes: This release adds bugfixes, menu changes, improved Tcl/Tk 8 .0 compatibility, a keepalive package, and new buttons.
Release Notes: TiK now will operate on systems with a version of Tcl/Tk older than 8.1, but extended features such as "smileys" and the message preprocessor will be disabled. In addition to that, for 0.85 the button bar has been added to the initial IM, quickpounce, and chat windows. There are now options for disabling IM/Chat loggging. Graphical buttons were added to more windows.
