Kopete and libmsn – 2


It’s been a long time I don’t write here, so it is time to update the wlm plugin and libmsn status.
Too much work has been done in wlm and libmsn since the last post. Boiko helped me on porting wlm plugin to kde4 + qt4 (thanks), The avatar management and identity integration was improved, file transfer works better now, some issues with blocking connection were fixed by changing libmsn layout, and so on.

Two weeks ago I sent the source code and the current status of libmsn and wlm plugin to kopete-devel@ mailing list. Some days after this Urs Wolfer and Olivier Goffart from #kopete channel helped me on getting an account in the kde svn and to upload the source code to kopete’s svn playground.
So the new (temporary, I hope) wlm home is here:

  3. Good job!

    I really need to buy a new HD so that I can build KDE on my mac to try it out (and check it is still working).

    Keep on going! 🙂

  5. Hi!Compliments for the new “job”!So the kopete team(and matt rogers too,I suppose) decided to not implement anymore msnp15 and to use your plugin instead???

  6. Hi Kyashan,
    I don’t really know about the internal decisions of kopete team.
    For now, wlm is just a testing plugin, but I hope that in a few time we can have it as the default msn plugin. 🙂

  10. Thanks for libmsn! I’m already using it on Kopete svn and it’s fine.

    What I like most was the offline message, very useful feature. I hope you can implement audio/video support too in the future 😉 or at least voice clips, like in AMSN. Thanks!

  11. Hello Dâniel,

    Libmsn already supports voice clips, but there is no way (at least for now) to show them in kopete interface.
    If I figure out a way to do that, I’ll implement it for sure.

    Best regards.
