04 Apr 2002 :: Well, there are some news for today. Let's start with centericq. Today is the third day since the IRC protocol support implementation started. And there is a visible progress.

The program is growing and collecting more and more features. Now centericq has also got support for the AIM protocol. In my previous note I must had outlined it more exact that all the problems with open source implementation were related to the AIM OSCAR protocol. But there is another one they support, and not that jealous about it. It's TOC which allows clients to do exactly the same as OSCAR does, i.e. to connect to the server and exchange messages, files and whatever else with others. In addition, a nice library in C for TOC appeared to exist. It was called firetalk, and that was the one I decided to use in centericq. Despite of complete absence of documentation, it didn't take me long to get a clue with its functions. Another pleasant surprise was its stability. This means, that so far I didn't have to hack the source in order to fix its bugs, because I just found none. I only had to add one more function to return all the socket descriptor numbers opened by the library, for I needed to make one big select(2) call for all the sockets for all the IM protocols in my program.

Nowdays, looking at the screen of my centericq I feel myself like a real schizophrenic in four "avatars". Centericq - the power of your shizo!

The release is planned to be made in a week or some, gotta test it. But if you cannot help trying the new feature, there always is a nightly build of the CVS source from the centericq download page regulary built by the centericq.de team [tm].
