 EPISTULA Modular Instant Messenger for AmigaOS 

  Epistula is to AmigaOS what GAIM is to Linux and Windows. For people not in
the know, GAIM is an 
  instant messenger application which can handle a variety of IM protocols, for
example Microsoft 
  MSN, AOL AIM and Yahoo Messenger. 

  I know JabberWocky can provide a similar service, but that requires extra
setting up with Jabber 
  ID's etc. This way, you can log straight onto your favourite protocol,
by-passing any need for yet
  another IM account. One of the main reasons I started to write this client was
because I couldn't 
  be bothered with Jabber... I can't be the only one... can I? 

  Unlike GAIM, Epistula is written in a modular fashion in that each 'protocol'
is a plugin which can 
  be installed, and updated, seperately from the main application and other

 Release v50.18

  Quite a big update this time; I have been working hard on this for a while and
have managed to complete
  all of the features I outlined in the last release.

  So, in this release the following changes have been made, and features
   - Documentation is provided in PDF form.
   - All imagery within Epistula is now user configurable. I've used PNG images
as IFF won't display
     correctly on my machine. Note a word of warning though; don't try and use a
PNG image with more than
     256 colours as it will crash. I need to adapt my code to work with high
colour images first.
   - You can now add and remove contacts to and from your contact list, although
this will also depend on
     that functionality being implemented fully in the plugin.
   - Contacts can be moved to and from any groups you have with your contact
list. Note that I've found a
     nasty bug in the add group functionality, so it's disabled. A fix will be
released VERY soon.
   - Full logging is provided should you need it. If I'm missing anything which
you'd like implemented and
     added to the logs, drop me a line and I'll see it's added for the next
   - Docky icon implemented, although it doesn't do anything yet and looks err,
dark. Best leave it off
     until I'm finished with it.
   - Updated catalogs and missing translations from last version fixed. If you
spot anything which isn't
     translated let me know so I can fix it. Note that you should remove any old
   - Nicely re-written plugin removal code which uses new features of
dos.library to stop those awful crashes
     and 'Cannot quit plugin' messages.
   - Your installed MUI Classes are checked to make sure they're the correct
version or above

  That's all I can think of right now, I'm sure there are lots of small fixed
I've missed from that list so
  it'll be up to you lot to test everything for me.

  And so, as I did last time, I'll set myself some more goals before the next
major release of Epistula:

   - Fully implemented docky support
   - Multi-chat features
   - File Transfer
   - Suggestions...
