Software News : SabreMSN 0.60 - basic file transfers
Posted by jahc on 2009/12/1 12:19:51 (744 reads) News by the same author
Software News

This release is dedicated to Mick from irc.amigaworld.net #amigaworld. He single handedly hammered the correct values into my binary headers, corrected the replys, INVITE messages and decoding, etc. MSN coding is hard. Try his console based Amiga client AmiMSN for a preview of what SabreMSN will support next year :)



I had freezes under AROS with my final testing when receiving messages, and with both sending and receiving of files, but I've uploaded the newer version anyway for people to try.. I will investigate further later.

I havent implemented a more handsome GUI yet for the file transfers. I'm still using the old style GUI from last year. Once I have my structures and variables moved into linked lists, and have the ID's being processed properly for each transfer, and corrected many other little things that are currently wrong with this release, then I will implement a better GUI. Also, avatars should come fast once this is all in place too.


CHANGELOG
=========
2009-12-01: Alpha 60
- File transfers! Pretty alpha. Lots to do. One send and receive at a time until I move
everything into linked lists, and process the ID's properly for individual transfers.
A few bugs here and there. Doesnt work with aMSN. Very alpha. Had to get something out
there though, because it mostly works. For now, everything downloads straight to RAM:
- User is typing notifications seemed broken somehow. Needed an extra \r\n at the end of
the "typing notification" message.
- Usernames are often being displayed wrongly, i.e., the email address instead of the
display name. Microsoft were evil and changed bits of MSN again. Investigating..
- Changed the incoming buffer to a ring buffer, which made it easy to process Payload
messages no matter the circumstances, so the odd random incoming message shouldnt be
missed anymore now.. Yay!

Thanks James. God it felt like hundreds of hours of trawling through tcpdump captures sorting this all out.
