Projects / Gyach


Gyach is a GTK+-based Yahoo! Chat client which can use your existing Yahoo! logins for chatting in Yahoo! Chat. It supports colors, emotes/aliases, PMs, set status, remote user status display, ignore lists (local, non-Yahoo! based), a regex list of triggers to cause users to be automatically ignored, command-line recall via arrow keys, and tab completion of usernames.

    Release Notes: Yahoo! login problems were fixed. The auto-reconnect code now only reconnects if the user has been online for more than one minute, which should fix the problem with people logging in twice and causing a never-ending login/logout cycle.

      Release Notes: This release has been updated to work with Yahoo's new login scheme.

        Release Notes: A few bugfixes, including a GTK+ 2.2.x incompatibility, problems with proxy connections, and an occasional coredump when a specific yahoo packet was received.

        •  09 Oct 2002 05:22

          Release Notes: This release supports both Gtk+ v2.x and v1.2.x. It contains several bugfixes as well as more auto-ignore triggers and tab completion of / commands and filenames. When using Gtk+ v2, it is also possible to display graphical smileys, resize the split-text chat window so you can scroll back in the top window while still keeping up with new messages in the bottom, and have underlined URLs to make them stand out more in the chat text.

          •  30 Sep 2002 01:18

            Release Notes: More auto-ignore checks, speedups in auto-ignored user lookups and auto-ignore regex checks, shortcuts added for / commands (such as /ig for /ignore), major code cleanup and organization, and a few more bugfixes.
