eMeSeNe Changelog

New in version 1.6

January 6th, 2010
  • New Preferences Windows:
  • We blogged about this back in early December where we were stoked to see better sorting of configuration options and loved the few new features that slipped in.
  • The “tabs” are now presented on the left-hand side (as opposed to the top in previous versions) making it more in line with out desktop applications’ preference windows. It also now displays much better on netbook screens, which are wider rather than taller.
  • Conversation Style Previews:
  • No longer just a drop-down box relying on you already knowing how they’d look; conversation style previews help you get the type of layout that you really want.
  • Easy Install Themes:
  • Icon and emoticon themes can be installed with simplicity via the new ‘install new’ feature.
  • “Nickname Roaming” comes to Emesene. “What is that?” you ask. It allows your nickname and personal message to be “saved” between sessions and used when you log to another MSN client (that supports it) on any other machine. It also means whatever you set your status as in those will be used when you login to Emesene again.
