aim protocol change

Postby IskatuMesk » Sat Mar 26, 2016 1:43 am

AIM has finally changed their protocol again and broke support for some older clients like Miranda and, in my case, an old version of trillian. I refuse to update to the ugly new trillian so I guess I'm stuck waiting for miranda NG to get a plugin for the updated protocol. That shouldn't hopefully take too long since apparently pidgin supports it and the source exists, but who knows.

If you are one of the vast majority of people I talked to only on aim and want to get a hold of me the best way is probably through vent or steam or e-mail (malkor at gmail dot com). Particularly emus, schwas or other individuals working with certain project stuff.

I have no alternative solution for file transfers at all until aim is back.

It is probably dead for good. We tried to use pidgin but file transfers don't work on it so I don't know. And yeah, all of the other clients are ugly as shit.

Could try setting up a Discord channel. File transfers only go up to 8mb, though.

After using the other programs, Trillian 5 feels like the lesser evil.
