    Release Notes: The contact list can now be sorted by groups. (A contact may only be in one group.) The "f" key can be used to change the mode for showing the contact list. Buddies' personal message can be shown. The PAGE_UP/PAGE_DOWN key is supported in the contact list. Focusing routines were improved. Cursor-follow-marker functions were improved. Mouse support was made optional. The "most of contacts blocked" bug was fixed. The yellow border now follows the focus properly. The "send msg crash after sb left a conversation" bug was fixed.

      Release Notes: This release adds a 'display current playing song' option in tmsnc.conf, adds support for setting a personal message (a new menu item), removes gettext support, and optimizes panel handling (making the program slightly faster). The window in focus is now shown in yellow, and the border style of windows has also changed.

        Release Notes: The protocol was upgraded to MSNP11. A bar was added for showing the latest server message. There is no longer a limit to the number of contacts you can have. Multi-principal support was improved and an "Invite principal" menu item was added. Another cause of terminal freeze was patched, all compilation warnings were fixed, and a code clean-up was undertaken.

          Release Notes: Pressing F6 now closes the current window. Three power commands (whoami, export conlist, and import conlist) have been added. An option has been added to tmsnc.conf for making the cursor follow the marker. Translations for French and Portuguese have been added. An input field has been added to the console for commands. A segfault that occurred when you resized the terminal, a bug that caused tmsnc to freeze when closing a window, some bugs in the URL decoding routine, and a format string vulnerability have been fixed. New size of conversation list.

            Sweet! I didn't know.. Or I knew about Pebrot but it didn't work for me and thats why I started this. Yeah yeah, Tmsnc will hopefully have features that no other client have :P

            There *are* more console MSN clients
            &quot;The reason why we decided to start this project is that now there is no client for Unix and clones that doesn't require Xfree86 to be running. We feel that the simplicity of a CLI interface is much nicer than a graphical interface.&quot;

            And right you are. But one thing here isn't quite true... There are at least three ways to get onto MSN without X:

            CenterICQ - http://konst.org.ua/centericq/

            pebrot - http://pebrot.sf.net/

            BitlBee + any textmode IRC client - http://www.bitlbee.org/ http://www.irssi.org/

            But well, since CenterICQ and pebrot both don't have a very comfortable user interface, and because not everybody is an IRC-addict, I'm not going to complain. ;-)
