yea and at http://www.stricq.com/ theres a version for amiga xl which is hacked so it will run, the normal releases should work under amithlon though. im glad to hear this cause id like to use them on amiga os xl until i can afford a power tower or ppc which might be a year or so. man i love this community, i can usually find something helpful.

Sadly it still seems to not like communicating with newer versions of ICQ (i.e Windows users).
Did anyone take over the jabberwocky port after the original author binned it? Anyone doing any other JW ports?

If StrICQ isn't going to work with other ICQ clients, ie the offical Windows ones - then what is the point in releasing them? It's kinda annoying that i have to move to the desk with the PC on just to use ICQ - when i'd much rather use my Amiga for everything :-(
The latest Windows client now stores the contact list on the ICQ server too - would be nice to see an Amiga client make use of the contact lists on the server.
Has anybody ever contacted Mirabilis regarding doing an official port to the Amiga platform? Maybe then you'd get some offical documentation? They (Mirabilis) seems to have clients on many platforms available from their homepage too.

I remember signing a list a couple of years back that was sent to Mirabellis..
I think they got a couple of 100 names atlest.. But they whern't interessted IIRC.
They (the ppl who had the list) had made a MUI gui that looked alot like the windows version (ICQ99), and all they needed was the network code... The www page is long gone and prolly the source to by now... Well if some one know anyting more make a comment =)

Doesn't strICQ support the OSCAR protocol yet?
Maybe it would be a good idea to look at miranda-icq (http://miranda-icq.sourceforge.net), they recently implemented that protocol. Prior to that, a bunch of messages always got lost underway. Very frustrating.

In reply to Comment 5 (Brecht [darklite]):
isn't it possible to use a linux emu. and run licq on that? has anyone done this and how well does it work?
licq is also somewhat incompatible with the windows version, not THAT much but sometimes I do have problems talking to a friend who uses it.

The reason it doesn't work with the newer Win32 clients is that they have change the ICQ protocol, so the network code in strICQ will probably need updating before it can use the new features (or anything else).

Well, I don't think it's that easy to just port licq... it's possible that licq is also still using the old protocol (icqlib for linux).
But, miranda-icq is under GPL, so anyone's free to use the code. After they switched to the OSCAR protocol I haven't lost any messages , as far as I can tell.

From what i remember, they were interested, but then got taken over
and things went adrift.
I think anouther problem was "digital corruption" or something like
that was involved and they had a history of cracking or other activity
which may have been problematical for icq.

What on earth is a "Linux emu"? If you mean a Linux emulator,
there's no such thing. There is a UNIX "emulator" but that
doesn't help in this case as licq is graphical. A direct port of
licq would require the appropriate port of the toolkit (which
isn't available - publically at least) and an X11 server/client
installation.
