    It seems that gyachi doesn`t upload my buddy image anymore. I removed existing .yahoorc folder just to be sure. I tested gyachi 1.2.5, 1.2.6, 1.2.7, 1.2.8 and 1.2.9 . Older versions used to work few time ago. Now none of this versions is able to upload my buddy image. I removed .yahoorc folder everytime i tested a version. Maybe something changed in Yahoo! servers. I tested images of diferent sizes, and types from png to jpg. When i open a conversation with a buddy the message "Your buddy icon was sent" doesn`t apair anymore. Plus the message "Your buddy image was uploaded" doesn`t apair anymore.

    I been looking nto ths, recently… sadly, it appears that this is not a problem in regression. It appears to be a change in yahoo protocol from what I can wireshark.

    Does pidgin support buddy images ? does this still work in pidgin ?

    or any other open source ym ?

    if yes, give me program and version, and i'll be able to fix this a lot quicker.

    All the best,

    In pidgin 2.7.1 it works perfect. I`ve used it a while.

    But today i retested gyachi 1.2.9 and it works again. My buddy image was uploaded, and any Windows Yahoo! messenger buddy is able to see my avatar. Great!!!
