SabreMSN 0.68 released with personal avatar support
« on: March 31, 2010, 06:50:36 AM »
A new version of SabreMSN has been released. 0.68 alpha brings the  ability to select your own avatar, fixes various bugs and has a slight  UI change.

At the time of posting, only an OS4 package is  available.

OS4Depot link

Please read the .readme  for more information than just the changelog.

2010-03-28:  Alpha 68

- Users can choose their own Avatar now.
-  Windows/tabs will not open when a switchboard connects. Instead, they  will open when someone types
  to you. This way, the switchboards  that are opened to download your avatar will not bother people.
-  Default graphics is shown when the user has no avatar to download. I  dont know how to do graphics.
  Any volunteers to make me a better  one?
- The "Close Tab" text button has been replaced with graphics,  but it looks very ugly.
  Any volunteers to make me a better one?
-  Avatar cache bugfixed a bit. It was downloading a new avatar for each  new switchboard session. It didnt use
  the "downoad/dont download"  variable properly. No point in a cache then eh!
- "Dont use direct  connection" messages were sent over and over before. It's now only sent  once.
- Temporary/currently downloading avatars are stored in  progdir:cache/trash/ and cleaned on startup, and
  avatars are  renamed into the cache/trash/ dir if they cant be deleted, to get around  issues of locked files
  in some circumstances.
- The toolbar  automatically hides the borders and text, to make it look more handsome.

Last time I tried it on OS4.1, it failed to log in but sat there using 100% CPU instead. Will give this version a go.
