New DNS resolver for libgadu is already done. This effects in stability (especially, under Windows: #6263) and some code cleanup (win32 related code is no longer needed).
Also, now our libgadu fork have just one-line difference against upstream (#343). At least, it will be one line after upgrading to 1.12.0, because now we have some patches plucked from upstream trunk. Continue reading
I have started my work on this year’s GSoC by some cleaning up. My work is available under im.pidgin.soc.2012.gg branch.
Making trunk usable: default theme wasn’t ready to use, so I’ve made it as close to legacy one, as possible (in reasonable amount of time). It still needs work, but at least it’s comfortable (#15129). Continue reading
After a gap year, Pidgin applied for Google Summer of Code. One of accepted proposals is set of improvements for Gadu-Gadu protocol plugin – that’s my task. I will post here some news about progress on that. Also, if there would be anyone interested, I will publish nightly builds for testing purposes.
Most important improvements to do:
- file transfer;
- contact list synchronization – something like xmpp/jabber does;
- Windows SSL support – now, encryption is available just for Linux with GnuTLS;
- code refactoring (it’s unnoticeable for end-user);
- voice chat support – I will try to do this, but I don’t promise anything else.
