Software News   Software News : Pidgin 1.5.0 (Gaim) for Cygnix (AmigaOS 4) released
   posted by CygnusEd on 2-May-2007 11:52:51 (5250 reads)
The first release of Pidgin 1.5.0 is now available on OS4-depot. Pidgin
is an IM client that supports many protocols, including AIM, ICQ, MSN,
IRC, and Jabber.
Pidgin was formerly known as "Gaim", but it had to be renamed because of
legal reasons.



In this implementation these protocolls are included:

- AIM / ICQ
- Gadu Gadu
- Groupwise
- IRC
- Jabber
- MSN
- Napster
- Rendezvous
- Trepia
- Yahoo
- Zephyr

Im back with wookiechat and bitlbee server. I was so in hurry i didnt see the word Cygnix ;) Its good that we have all that but im a workbench guy so i wait for epistula.

However i tested PidGin and it worked nice. No crashes. I could even send and receive files with msn protocol. Ok it was slow but could be whatever. icq i couldnt send/Receive. Avatars was shown. Alot of stuff that we amigausers cant use and now it works. So for Cygnix users this is a really nice news. For me i wait ;)

Hello all,

I have installed XServer and other new X software AbiWord...
While X Server is working fine, I can't run any other additional software like Abiword, osb-browser..As soon as I launch them, GrimReaper strikes..

I have done all done updates for XServer and other software...
I generally get crashes about dos.library..

Any ideas ?
I am one of OS4 beta-testers and I am using latest unreleased updates on mA1 with 256 MB


Best Regards

@CygnusEd

Does this mean you're skiping the CygnusEd updates for now ?

Probably because the SDK version of sh is in your path. You should use the Cygnix version (Cygnix:CygnixPPC/bin/sh).

Brilliant messenger! File transfers, blocking, etc etc... Many thanks to the original authors and the one(s) who ported it to Cygnix!

I woder why I hadn't used it in Linux though... maybe the version in Sarge had something that I didn't like.

@ SinanG

Is your problem solved?


@ Jose

I'm not the maintainer of CygnusEd. It's Olaf Barthel.


@ all

Hope you have fun with Pidgin
