Blueimp's AJAX Chat project is now on GitHub! This Sourceforge project page will remain available for downloads and archive purposes.
Find the new project here: http://frug.github.com/AJAX-Chat/
Version 0.8.5a fixes a typo in the config.php file (and config.php.example file) that would cause chat to crash.
0.8.5 is released. This version finally has sound returning to chrome users. In addition there are now html readme files included with all the versions, and a user submitted danish translation.
Version 0.8.4 contains a bugfix for sound in chrome and safari browsers.
Version 0.8.3 adds 5 new languages and 2 language corrections.
A buffer is now used to reduce the number of DOM calls and improve chat performance.
Chat will try to reconnect when the connection with the server is lost, and the icon will indicate the problem by turning red.
Some minor bugfixes are also included.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to keeping this project alive!
Version 0.8.2 adds 8 new languages and minor language updates.
A status icon has been added to display when the client is waiting for an update from the server that can be clicked to force a chat update.
It also includes some minor bugfixes.
Hey everyone, I just thought I'd let you all know that I've taken over the development of AJAX Chat, along with a couple other great folks.
Eric Martindale (remaeus) - Developer
Will Anderson (javayahtzee) - Developer
Phil (frug) - Support Manager
We've got some exciting things in store for you, but you'll have to be patient while we all get accustomed to the project.
Some quick plans!
- Create a coldfusion socket server
I am searching for a developer wishing to takeover the AJAX Chat project.
This means improving the code base, implementing new features and continuing user support.
By taking over the project you will be given admin rights and full control over the project's further development.
I will try to assist and answer any questions regarding the existing code but won't be involved in the development process of future versions.... read more
This release adds the turkish localization - thanks to Cydonian.
It fixes also an encryption warning on IE due to the hardcoded flash codebase url when accessing the chat via HTTPS.
This is a bugfix release.
The fix is only one space character added to address a bug happening with the Opera browser and related to the display of the deletion link for chat messages.
Seems like Opera messes up in some situations when displaying floating links without content.
Version 0.8.1 adds official support for image BBCode.
Two new items have been added to the settings page to enable/disable image BBCode and font color BBCode.
It is also possible to define a regular expression for source URL's of images allowed to be posted.
The main feature of the new version is an improved socket code which allows real streaming of chat messages and greatly improves performance.
With the new socket code AJAX Chat features a Flash based "Comet" style push technology.
AJAX Chat now features an easy to use installation script to create the required database tables.
Additionally some minor bugs have been fixed and some translations have been updated (see changelog for this release).
The Wiki has been updated and contains now a Custom integration tutorial:
It explains how to integrate AJAX Chat into any existing forum or website.
Version 0.7.3 of AJAX Chat introduces a huge improvement for shoutbox installations:
By default, the shoutbox now delayes the chat update until the user sets the focus to the input field. Until then only teaser content is shown which requires no login to the chat view.
This helps reducing server load and prevents every user visiting a page showing the shoutbox to get logged in immediately.
