Miranda IM 0.8.0 Alpha Build #28 Now Available

March 04, 2009 by ghazan

Note: Alpha releases are considered unstable and are for experienced Miranda IM testers only.

Well, after five weeks of intensive hacking, we proudly present build 0.8.0.28, with tons (or tens? :) bugfixes in almost all modules, including the core.

Robert asked me not to call build 28 “release candidate”, cause it misses the key feature: multiacc-aware YAHOO protocol, but in fact it is RC1, considering the degree of quality of the core & core plugins.

The following things still have to be done:
– fixes for xml core driver, to allow more convenient programming;
– YAHOO protocol should be adapted for the multiaccount model;
– some important fixes for the protocol interfaces, including support for unicode file transfers, unicode status messages etc.

Enjoy. We still have some hundred bugs to fix :)
