GyachI V1.2.0

    Sorry it took so long to get this out. I was travelling, and didn't have good internet access for testing...

    well... as you all know, Yahoo! made some changes.

    There's been a lot made of that. Most non-ym chat clients couldn't log in (and if you were using either of the login protocols earlier that messenger 8 on GyachI, you also wouldn't have been able to log in).

    Our Messenger 8 support (which has been in Gyachi since Jan 2008) had no issues logging in.

    Yahoo! also made one additional change (at least), which had the unfortunate side affect of causing outbound PM posts to not go to your buddy. in other words, they could see that you were TYPING, and you could see them typing, and their typed text, but your buddy couldn't see your typed text.

    A very frustrating experience for all involved.

    Anyway, that is found, and fixed. At the same time, I added Messenger 9 support. Right now there is no difference between GyachI's support of Messenger 8 & 9.

    A few other minor things cleaned up. Removal of the obsoleted protocols, since you cannot log into Yahoo! with them any more. Also, I decided that this was as good a time as any to bump the version from 1.1 to 1.2.0 -- essentially for Yahoo! you need to be running GyachI 1.2.0 or newer.

      aghe, I just tested out "invisible" and "custom message" in one gyachi, and as another gyachi user, I can see the custom message and/or I can see the user "log off" when they go "invisible".


      I need you to be more precise in what you are seeing, and why you think it doesn't work.

      This was for ymsg-16 protocol (I already know that YMSG-15 handles these :-)

      More information appreciated...

        I'm so sorry that was my mistake :( tried to remove all my old .yahorc
        folder and fireup gyachi ones again and voilaa.. everything work as it
        should be now.. don't know how this fix my problem and why it doesn't
        work earlier..
        or probably it's just a connection matter FYI I'm using GPRS connection
        @ that moment.

        thanks Greg..

      I just gave it a quick try.  Others can see what I type now.  And I can see what they type - twice!
