centericq is a text mode menu- and window-driven IM interface that
supports the ICQ2000, Yahoo!, AIM, IRC, MSN, Gadu-Gadu, and Jabber
protocols. It allows you to send, receive, and forward messages, URLs,
SMSes (both through the ICQ server and email gateways supported by
Mirabilis), contacts, and email express messages, and it has many other
useful features. An internal RSS reader and a LiveJournal client are
Project Release infomations and Project Resources. Note that these informations are from this projects Freecode.com page and the downloads themselves may not be hosted with SourceForge.JP.
AIM changed its protocol again, so all TOC clients did not work. This release fixes the inability to connect to the AIM network. Some Jabber bugs were fixed. PGP works better, and it's also possible to connect to Google Talk. Chat window cycling and coloring of contacts according to the protocol were added.
PGP encryption support was implemented for the Jabber module. The RTF parser used for processing messages from Windows ICQ clients was fixed. A problem with logging on to Yahoo! on Sun Sparc machines was fixed, which may also resolve an issue with Gadu-Gadu on big-endian architectures. Several other small bugfixes were made.
This release fixes a problem where the 'u' letter was eaten
by the RTF parser when processing messages from Windows
ICQ clients. A memory leak problem when checking RSS
was fixed. The Gadu-Gadu module no longer produces a
segfault when it was unable to obtain a registration token
from the server. A small patch was applied so that it's now
possible to start centericq with all protocols set to offline.
Another type of external event was added. Users can now
execute actions when someone goes offline.
The client now builds with GCC 3.4. A new --debug command line parameter was added, making it unnecessary to re-build the program to enable debug output. IRC accounts can now include two passwords: one for Nickserv and the other one for regular IRC authentication. Online and free-for-chat modes now have the same priority in contact list sorting. Unicode characters in RTF-encoded ICQ messages are no longer lost. A segfault that occurred when accepting Yahoo! file transfers was fixed. For online users, the time for which those contacts have been online is now shown.
The MSN group management problem was fixed. The
source no longer fails to compile when the SSL
library is not found during the build. Jabber
server messages no longer come from a nick that is
similar to the server name with an "@" sign at the
end. The --no-xtitles (-T) commmand line parameter
was added, which disables changing window titles
in xterm and screen. An LJ bug, in which the LJ
contact got garbled if the whole friends name list
grew larger than 512, was fixed. The configure
script now checks if libcurl has SSL support
enabled in order to avoid MSN malfunction.
