Version 0.9 is released

Version 0.8 is unable to receive messages from Tencent's
newer clients due to new message formats.

I tested version 0.9 with Perl 5.8.5 on Gentoo 2004.3
and Perl 5.6.1 on Red Hat 7.2.

Warning message from Tencent servers

Tencent servers started sending warning messages to
perl oicq users. The message said that your qq version
is too old. You can easily stop the message by editing
All you need to do is to change line 112:
my $PacketHeader = pack('C*', 0x02, 0x07, 0x2e);
into this:
my $PacketHeader = pack('C*', 0x02, 0x08, 0x01);
