A blog about the magic which dwelves deep into KMess

KMess 2.0.1 is out!

Hello everyone!

I’m happy to announce that KMess 2.0.1 is out right now! (for those who are wondering, it is a Live Messenger alternative for KDE4 😀 )

This release also contains a couple new shiny things other than the usual “fixed this, improved that” mutter:

  • Full hand-writing support! yay ISF-Qt!
  • Synchronization between Messenger’s friendly names, display pictures and personal messages
  • Fixes to the unbelievable MSN server issues of recent history

Now, head on to SourceForge to get it before everyone else starts to package it 😉

Then let us know what you think of it! You can reach us by using our forum, our development mailing list, IRC at #kmess on FreeNode, or by using LikeBack: open KMess, go to the Help menu, click “Send a comment to the developers”.

Also thanks to all translators, contributors and testers, not forgetting all users who sent us feedback via LikeBack! Hats off :)

    I am using kmess. It does have a ton of interesting/fun features that both kopete and pidgin don’t have.

    But other than the “fun” factor, can it be useful for once? I use MSN messenger because it has Video/Audio chat capability and people I wanna use it to talk to all have it installed.

    But kmess doesn’t seem to have Video/Audio chat implemented, and that makes me VERY dissappointed.

    Yes voice/video would be nice but I’d also love to see it integrated with the Lencelot menu’s “People” tab. I also love tabbed conversations and integration with the default notification system.

    Keep up the good work.

    Don’t worry, audio/video will come in the next major release – 2.1 – and full KDE4 desktop integration is on its way, too 😉

    But 2.1 is not on the roadmap yet……Really waiting for it 😐
