I've been hunting for and fixing some major bugs in MSNP14 branch
(and minor too) so that it becomes usable and at least on par
stability-wise with the MSNP implementation in pidgin 2.1.0 . I hope
to have it ready in the next few days to be merged so that it can be
used by a wider audience.
For now, the major obstacles are a bug in adding buddies which
sometimes don't get added at all and connections through proxies
could be better. There are also other minor bugs to deal with, but
MSNP14 branch is shaping up nicely to replace im.pidgin.pidgin msnp
Next i hope to improve SOAP requests handling which are increasingly
central to MSNP, by creating a small library to process them, to
avoid parsing them manually with printfs. Things are going well
albeit a little late as my exams finally ended just some days ago.
