I have a suggestion to the interface tester, if you want to make an update to that:

When an object is hovered, it would be useful to have a tooltip to display the name of the object that is highlighted.

A more detailed icon for Messenger Status such as "Busy" and "In a call", "Out to Lunch", "BRB" and "Away". (:

"In a call": A little grey phone beside the green messenger icon?

"Out to Lunch": A little grey cup of coffee beside the green messenger icon? - Cup of Coffee; (C)

This is a feature of WLM itself. Unless your contact had MP!L as well, they would not be able to see the icon. Then comes the difficulty of patching the images.

RE: Working on the next version
I'm happy that still in summer u are coding for a new version of MsgPlus ;)
As this would be a great release, I'd suggest some improvements:
[list=1]
[*]I'd like to get the Real Name of a contact apper after the nickname we use to give contacts!
When the contact renaming was a feature by msgplus it was possible! Now I know that is entirely managed by wlm, but if you can get the real name..why can't you add it after the nickname?!
Ex: My_Nickname_For_The_Contact - Real_Contact_Name - PSM

[*]I think you should add some group features as:
  • "Block all the members of this group" (having memory of members blocked manually, that should have a different blocking priority)
  • "Event Notifications for this group" (having memory of manually set event notifications)
  • "Send an e-mail to this group" (opening the Live Mail client with every contact of that group as recipients)
  • View the group name of the contact we are chatting with in the IM window
Yes I know, I use contact groups really a lot :P

[*]Process the bbcode also in the text of the psm in the main Wlm window.
I think should be possible because I've seen once a plugin which made editable the Nickname in the main wlm window. When you clicked on it to modify your nickname, the bbcodes changed to text, then when you finished the edit, bbcodes got processed and the nick was in colour.
[/list]
[/list]
I think are all pretty easy things to do.
I hope you will take my suggestion into account :)

Enjoy your coding :D


*Hm funny! A little bug in mybb! After closing the list, text doesn't go back to the very left :P

On Patchou's to-do list. The problem is he has to relie heavily on Messenger itself, where it goes he goes. I can imagine him starting a 4 week holiday in the Caribbean and the Messenger team release a new public build :P.

The Messenger team have been lazy with the API since they made Windows Live Messenger and have not made a function to get a contacts nickname, something which I find frustrating when using Plus! and I don't know who anyone is.

RE: Working on the next version
Dolarius: for the first points please read Read first! Messenger Plus! Live FAQ.  For the second that's because of the difficulty of using groups with WLM, noone has really found a good way of doing it to my knowledge and hence Patchou has not implemented the feature. And for your third have a look at Patchou's reply to Idea for a future version?.  I hope this gives you all the information you need.
