msn-pecan 0.1.2 released; critical bug-fix


This is an important maintenance release, everybody should update. Apparently Microsoft shut down the Nexus servers that were used for authentication, which meant msn-pecan stopped working completely. Fortunately I found a trick to circumvent the problem without requiring an update the protocol used; use Passport 3.0 authentication. Had I known the fix would have been so easy I would have tried earlier. Sorry for the long delay.


  • Fix authorization; Passport 3.0 instead of nexus
  • Fix offline message reception
  • Improve reconnection/disconnection detection
  • Ignore reverse-list; the server returns wrong info
  • Show correct alias in chat window

Enjoy 🙂

  1. @Teoh You mean on the Nokia N900 or outside? Outside it doesn’t really work (it’s different), but I’m thinking on putting the same from the Nokia N900 available so that it can be used in all sorts of distributions.

  2. It doesn’t work for me on my N900. With a < character in my password, the password is not accepted. After I’ve changed my password to be without special characters, it says my account is in use even when I’ve signed out from everywhere.

  3. Hey other websites works great but your web site is loading steadily which had taken nearly a
    few minutes to finally load, I am not sure whether it’s my very own issue or maybe your site issue.
