We have a technical...
Or, in this case, a new Yeemp
release. I've cleaned
up (or mangled, as the case may be) the Gtk UI significantly - xeemp can now
be controlled without once touching the mouse, and no longer fills the screen
with a zillion tiny windows, and multiline text entries now get the line height
from the font instead of assuming that it's 30px high, and it will try to
force itself into a UTF-8 locale automatically. The oggslave behaves
a little better, only falling back to a console beep when it can't play the
ogg it was trying to. Account creation behaves better. Yeemp is happy with
perl 5.6.1 and GPG 1.0.6 again. The interactive clients
will respond to SIGUSR2 by enabling debug messages, which hopefully will
enable me to poke the infinite loop bug(s) a little more effectively.
Reconnection works better. In the console client, w and /w now accept regexes
for more manageable output with long contact lists. And the AIM plugin
will now strip spaces from contact names, in the interests of sanity.
Be warned. Tentacle.net will be moving soon, which means that I'll be
sans email for a while (probably a couple weeks) as it does. Also that
the public Yeemp server will cease to exist for those two weeks.
