Default SabreMSN 0.41 now available for AROS

My MSN client is now available for AROS. UTF8 character support is missing for now, due to relying on codesets.library.

Download the AROS port of SabreMSN from the SabreMSN section on my homepage:
http://wookiechat.amigarevolution.com

If you like the software, please consider sending a donation.


Features

- emoticons
- "user is typing" notifications
- nudges (they shake the window just like on Windows)
- logging/log reloading
- utf8 character conversion using codesets.library
- sound alerts
- rudimentary file transfers (it uses the older protocol though, so newer clients wont work)
- editable usernames
- add/remove and rename users

Known problems (roughly):

- Sometimes the SSL stuff fails when trying to connect, so the only thing you can do is keep clicking connect after it fails each time
- the list of Online contacts isnt always sent in full when I first connect. I havent found an answer to that problem yet. So it appears like everyones offline, or most of your online contacts are offline. Reconnecting to the server once or twice in a row seems to restore the list properly sometimes.
- Sometimes Sabre reapers. I've only had this happen twice in the last few weeks though. It seems to be dying on the MUI input loop, but maybe I've done something illegal before that call..
- Newly added contacts arent added to the list, you need to reconnect to see them
- Sometimes outgoing file transfers report during mid-transfer: "The file transfer was unsuccessful because your computer is out of disk space. Try deleting some files, and then ask the sender to try the transfer again."
- Sabre uses the older MSN file transfer protocol, so many recent MSN clients fail when trying to send a file to Sabre.

I didnt know that. 0.42 AROS should have codesets.library support enabled then. Thanks.

Edit: codesets.library v6.7 only has librarys for os3 os4 and mos it seems.

Yay!

I've been hunting for an MSN client for my old A4k with OS3.9 the last few days and I thought what the heck, check the website and see if there's one and to my joy there was.

Just tried it as well and it works perfectly! Much obliged!

Not that I'll use it very often but sometimes sitting here playing some old games I don't have to run to my other computer(s) if someone writes me.

Though, someone saw me even if I set it to show as offline...

Humm...

I have an issue I'm wondering about but found no email-addy on the website to send this to so I'll write here and hope you'll check.

Running OS3.9 and having IBrowse running I can't get the program to function. I can start it up but can't do anything, I have to shut IBrowse down first.

Dunno if this is my system acting weird or not. Though, other software starts up and works normally in the same conditions.

Otherwise it's great!

@jahc

Check Codeset SVN on sourceforge, there are also an AROS version, altrough you can find it "in bundle" on AROS ISO's not in a separated archive :-)
