Well it looks like we have Skype working on AmigaOS using latest Amicygnix. It needs more love but its working. Finally we can communicate with the rest of the world :)

Super, there has been no new news in the Amicygnix topic for a very long time. Can I expect other programs to be updated in addition to Pigdin?

Fantastic news!

Two questions:

Do you have a link to allow for donations?

Can you include xterm in the next version?

Thanks,
Bill

Yes, after getting my new X5000, development of AmiCygnix continues.
A new base package is under development, which fixes several bugs.
Also updates of the software packages are planned.

Donations are still possible on my donation page on http://www.schwan-clan.de .
xterm will not be part of the next system update - sorry, maybe next time.

There have been some more updates.

* Facebook protocol (update to latest version 0.9.5 of purple-facebook)

* Twitter protocol (update to latest version 0.14.0)

* Discord protocol (new, version 0.9)

* Screenshot for sending screenshot using FTP or HTTP (new)

I hope we can get purple-hangouts ported to we can start use Hangous for communications. And there is a nasty bug when you try to transfer files to a user.

Discord Protocol? Does this mean we can do voice chat on the Amiga?

Cheers,
Bill

Audio and video support ist still not implemented in the Amicygnix version of Pidgin, sorry. So only the chat feature is available.
Audio / video needs "gstreamer", which is hard to port.

Unfortunately this port doesn't work.

There are much things missing including a driver for Webcams on OS4 for example.
Audio would be much easier, but I don't know, which kind of microphone could be used.
GStreamer is really a beast, which has it's own drivers and dependencies.

Audio would be nice if its possible. G+ and hangout will be closed down in 2019 so maybe its just a waste of time to make it work.

Gstreamer the beast looks like this
