Software News : SabreMSN 0.73 with a new look
Posted by jahc on 2010/7/14 8:22:43 (1067 reads) News by the same author

2010-07-14: v0.73
- Contacts list has been redone, with scaled avatars beside peoples names
- Multiline chat field, control + Enter to do a line break without sending the message
- Timestamped messages in the chat display telling you when someone has gone offline/online
- Tabs open in the background when you already have one open now
- Avatars can be scaled now
- New Settings window, with tabbed display. Takes up much less screen space




This version tries to introduce an Empathy or Emesene style contact list, with scaled avatars
next to peoples names. Also, their personal message or music is now shown underneath the persons
name, so those details are visible on skinnier windows.

The default "no avatar" image has been replaced with something better.

The Settings window has been redone with a tabbed style display. Saves screen space. Especially
when you're not running 1920x1080 24" monitors like me. :P

The all in one style interface (with the contacts and chat windows combined) has been removed, due
to not being able to test all 3 possible settings thoroughly.. and the hassle of maintaining
three seperate GUI modes. So now we have a tabbed mode, and a windowed mode. Keeps things simple
I think.

Theres a few annoyances left in this release. The display pictures in already opened chat
windows are not re-scaled when you change the scaling prefs (but they are updated properly when
using chat tabs). And also, if you have a line of text, and the cursor is positioned in the middle
of your text, when you hit enter, the program doesnt catch the Enter keypress before the message
is sent and the message gets a newline inserted there (effectively getting split into two lines).
I will correct these hopefully minor issues in the next release.. but this has been getting
tweaked for too long, so I wanted to get something new out the door.

Thank you to the usual suspects for helping me out again. :)
