libmsn news


yesterday my friend boiko encouraged me to contact Mark Howe, the original libmsn developer. I told him about the changes I made in libmsn, and I asked him his thoughts about forking libmsn. He told me it’s been 2 years the development is stopped, and if I want to maintain the code and revive the project I’m welcome. So, there is no need to fork libmsn so far.

Now it is time to face the worst part, which is code the library. πŸ™‚

Today I dropped all the qt code I’ve been using to help on xml parsing. Instead of qt I’m using xmlParser, which is a tiny library I found when I was googling xml related subjects.

Probably next week I’ll have some news about the current development status.

  2. I’ve been trying to upgrade libmsn to MSNP15 myself but with no success. I hope you share your code so everyone can finally enjoy MSN πŸ™‚

  3. Sure, as soon as I finish the basic commands (add, del, add groups..) I’ll release the first version. The protocol has changed a lot last years. The worst part I think is keep the portability with many OS’s.

    Thank you for visiting and keep an eye on the recent posts. πŸ™‚
