Leaks a little though. o Auto update all users function added. o Added support for PC Speaker for sound.

New in v0.40pr3 o Fixed the URL and description being reversed o Changed how reading events works. Redid the Read Msg tab. o Added more error checking to the socket code. o Platform indepedence in the socket code hopefully. Removed the problem with big-endian / little-endian numbers. o Fixed the names appearing halfway up the line in the main window. o Added lines to the main window. New in v0.40pr2 o Hopefully the double message thing and the various problems with the newest version of ICQ for windows are fixed. o Added server busy awareness. o Ability to go to the next server if the current one isn't working. o New messages are saved so that next time you start you will still see them (sort of). Now if Licq crashes while you have new messages you won't lose them. o Started distributing Jeff's status icons as the default ones. You can always use the other ones if you prefer. o Segfault which occured on a line larger than 57 characters fixed. o Pending events handled properly when you log off. Basically Licq handles timeouts much better. o Send Through Server is sticky, so it remembers it's position for each user between calls. o Unaligned byte reading bug fixed so that Licq will run under Solaris and other OS's...Unfortunately, there are still problems with endianess so Licq still requires an i386 processor to work. New in v0.40pr1 o Total restructuring of gui. Uses Qt 1.4 ListView instead of list boxes. Shows more information on each user in the window now. Status bar added, showing on/offline status, number of system messages, and number of new messages. o Mini mode where Licq takes up much less screen real-estate. o Search User function added. Search by first name, last name email address, or alias. o Send URL works. New in v0.34 o Word wrap works in read messages properly (wraps words instead of cutting them off) o Authorization has been added. Now when users ask for authorization you see more of their information and the request. And you can authorize users to add you with "Users" "Authorize User" menu option. o Fixed the vertical bars error in windows boxes. Now Licq sends messages in DOS style (carriage return / newline) instead of UNIX style (newline only). o Icon added, thanks to Dave and the Gimp. o Docking now supported in WindowMaker, BlackBox... o Sound support added. Currently only one sound which plays on incoming messages. New in v0.33 o Command-line options now work. Try -d to dump some status debugging info and -b to set base directory (defaults to ~/.licq) and -h for help. o Word wrap works in the send message dialog! Borrowed some code from KEdit and now it works. Wrote some code to get it to work in other dialogs (such as read msg). It's not perfect, but a patch will be released soon to fix it. o Licq no longer crashes if you aren't connected. It runs fine and will simply give an error when you try and connect. o Major memory leak fixed, should make Licq more stable. o Foundation for multiple server support added. o Licq now retries a set number of times before giving up on mirabilis instead of stopping right away. o Fixed the annoying "Hide" button on the wrong side problem. Now everything is more standard and the window won't dissappear when you hit "enter". o Autoconf configuration thanks to Nic Bellamy. Now you can just type configure to get everything working. o Rewrite of javaToLicq, making it much much better. Thanks again to Nic Bellamy. o Restructure of directory structure again. Now licq is installed in /usr/local/share/licq, but each user *has* to install it into their own ~/.licq directory. Licq.inst has been rewriten to better accomodate this. New in v0.32 o Option to dump the network window output to a file to aid in deubugging. Check box on the window itself toggles writting to BASE_DIR/netwin.debug o The network window now adds lines at the top instead of at the bottom, making it much easier to keep track of what's going on. No more jumping all over the place to keep track of the most recent event. o Licq now saves the size of the window and its position when it exits, and restores it when you restart. The information is stored in conf/geometry.conf o Added users are automatically saved to disk. o New users (either added manually or automatically) are automatically updated if you are online and their info saved. o Double clicking on a user with no new message now brings up the send message tab instead of the read message one. o History is now editable and you can save changes to disk. o Remove user now works, including removing the config and history files. o Selecting a function for a user when the function window is already open now updates the function window instead of doing nothing. o javaToLicq and micqToLicq scripts have been updated to actually work. o Major reimplementation of the directory code. Now Licq installs to /usr/local/licq (you can change this, but I don't recommend it) and will default read the config data from here. But you can specify a different BASE_DIR on the command line to give each user a seperate configuration. For example, running "licq" will start up licq using /usr/local/licq as the BASE_DIR and running "licq ~/.licq" will start licq using ~/.licq as the BASE_DIR. I recommend putting the later as an alias and using it. o New users are now marked in a different color until you open the function window for them. This allows you to tell how is new and who isn't. o Licq can now detect if a packet has come from another Licq client and will indicate this and the version number on the network window for each incoming tcp packet.
