ncid-applet 0.5 released

This is the first general release for ncid-applet. It is a Gnome applet for a NCID (Network Caller ID) client. The applet displays the Caller ID of a phone call in the panel. When a call is received, the panel icon will flash. and a configurable popup will display and play a ringtone. There are separate windows for previous calls and messages. There is a window to send a message to all NCID clients, and there are preference windows to configure the applet.

See the feature list, release notes and screen shots at http://ncid.sourceforge.net/ncid-applet/ncid-applet.html The applet requires NCID, tcl, Gnome, and gnocl.

There are no install packages for ncid-applet or gnocl. Both must be installed using scripts in the source distributions. In addition, gnocl must be compiled, see http://ncid.sourceforge.net/ncid-applet/INSTALL.txt for details.

You can help the project, for example: requesting or adding a new feature, identifying or fixing a problem, improving the documentation, or improving the icons.

The NCID project is located at http://ncid.sourceforge.net
