msn-pecan 0.1.0-rc2 ready for testing; now with N900 support

It took longer than expected, but msn-pecan 0.1.0-rc2 is ready🙂 There are
bugfixes all over the place, so everybody should upgrade as soon as possible.

The important ones are: chats work again, several oim improvements, and
directconn now truly enabled.

WARNING: it turns out directconn wasn’t really used, even if you enabled it in
the preferences, so if you experience crashes while transfering files that’s
expected (since it doesn’t work yet), so just disable it.

An important feature is support for the N900 thanks to telepathy-haze.
There’s a standalone package which is easy to install.

Only a few bugs remain to release 0.1.0, but the most important one: fully
functional direct connections, still needs some work =/

This is the list of issues fixed:

  • 162: Invisible status is visible
  • 179: Received Offline Messages have wrong receiving timezone
  • 190: Can’t send messages to offline contacts
  • 194: libmsn-pecan can’t be loaded in windows with pidgin 2.5.8
  • 70: WLM plugin does not auto connect when returning from suspend, it showes up disabled
  • 219: Crash pidgin in process_body_receive at pn_oim.c:468
  • 138: Translation is not whole integrated from Launchpad
  • 193: Error when set long(<=130) utf-8 display name
  • 202: Crash in pn_peer_call_free
  • 186: pidgin crashes on establishing http connection using msn-pecan over proxy using ntlmapps
  • 198: No Handwriting Coming in
  • 206: Cannot login anymore when changed my password
  • 211: Segfault in pn_oim.c process_body_receive() on badly formatted message
  • 215: Is “Continuous friendly name reset on MSN” fixed in msn-pecan?
  • 216: msn-pecan crashes on msn_transaction_destroy
  • 143: Pidgin crashes upon MSN Chat invite
  • 201: Crash on switchboard handling
