SIM-IM for OS/2 Update

I made some updates to OS/2 version of SIM Instant Messenger.

Download: sim-im-os2-0.9.4.3-r2.zip (7.2 MB)

Changes since previous release:
  • Updated Qt library which includes DBCS support and styles support.
  • Ported and included AutoAway plugin.

Notes:
  • Styles plugin provides style switching now. But Warp 4 style doesn't work, SIM will crash on it.
  • SYSGLIT.DLL provides WinGetLastInputTime() function for AutoAway plugin. You may copy this dll into \OS2\DLL directory.
  • This release requires GCC 0.6.3 runtime library: libc-0_6_3-csd3.exe or libc-0_6_3-csd3.wpi.

See SIM under OS/2 screenshots in previous announce.

Hi Eugene,

is there any problem with http://www.eros2.info/ ? I'm not able to access it to download new version of SIM!

Bye and thanks for the update, also if I'm not able to download it :-)

Hey Eros, I am having some interesting issues with SIM. I do not have it crash when I use the styles (even the Warp4 one), however, I can not send messages. I can receive them though :\

Has the bug where SIM ruins buddy lists been fixed if you have multiple accounts?

Also, does file-transfer work?

Brett, I do not have problem with sending messages (I use ICQ in SIM), and I can't fix it, as I not dig into SIM's internals. Maybe this bug is your issue.

I don't fix SIM bugs, sorry.

About issues with buddy-list and filetransfer you may read here.

Ah, okay. Thanks though Eros. Maybe if SIM gets another build with updated Oscar plug-in I can finally use it again :\

Hi Eugene, thank you very much for the SIM port. Finally an IM client for OS/2 that supports metacontacts!
I have a problem though: in SIM under Linux you can aggregate contacts into a metacontact by using drag'n'drop. Under OS/2 it doesn't work. If you try to drag a contact onto another contact you always get a "forbidden" sign. I tried left-dragging and right-dragging... both fail. Unfortunately there's no other way of aggregating contacts (though sometimes it understand which contacts to aggregate by itself), so this is a showstopper for me. Could you please look into it?
Thank you!

SIM seems to no longer work with Yahoo since April 1st. I finally found documentation that Yahoo stopped working with older yahoo clients at that time (5.x and older that I could see). I can't tell that SIM has fixed this in their code, anyone else able to tell?
