SabreMSN 0.65 - improved avatar support
« on: January 27, 2010, 09:45:19 AM »
SabreMSN is a MUI based MSN client for AmigaOS3.x/4.x. There are older versions for AROS available.

Display picture/avatar support has improved, but still needs work.

- When MSN clients try to establish a direct connection, Sabre will tell the other end
  to transfer over the switchboard. Hopefully more avatars will display for people now.
  It needs more work still though.
- Avatars are now downloaded automatically when people change them
- Multiline messages that dont end with an \n on each line (i.e. \r on Mac Messenger!)
  are displayed correctly now
- Auto Un-Away is now optional/configurable.

Thank you Jahc!

I don't know very well why I can't receive avatars yet with this version and previous one, I have tried to transfer files and it works ok but avatars not yet. Closed tabs reappear even if you close them (that didn't happen with 0.64 yesterday)

BTW, I have noticed that some symbols like "ñ" are displayed correctly in the textbox where the user writes but not on top. The other person doesn't receive the right character. On the good side the local characters the other person writes from his msn client are received and shown correctly by sabremsn

Avatars are a W.I.P..

Have you configured your local charset correctly? If you go into the pulldown menu and select Settings, what does it say beside "Local Charset:" ? You could try changing it to ISO-8859-15 or ISO-8859-1 and see if that makes a difference... this is the charset it will convert UTF-8 characters to. I need to remove the UTF#? charsets from that list or something, because that just doesnt make sense. :)

I forgot to mention, and the savvy users probably figured this out already, the URL name is http://wookiechat.amigarevolution.com/

@jahc

thanks! ISO-8859-1 Euro fixed the problem :-)

BTW, I tested the OS3 version. What do you use to load the avatars? a MUI DatapicObject or perhaps datatypes directly?
