tabSRMM in miranda nightly builds |
November 13, 2005, 02:08:23
Hi,

We have agreed that future Miranda nightly builds will also include tabSRMM DLLs. This will already start with the next nightly of Miranda which should be available within the next few days.

Since the nightlys are binary builds, they usually don't include changelogs or and the version numbers may not always change from one nightly to the next, I'll post release notes here. I'll continue to release builds on the file listing, because the builds included in the nightlys *may* contain unfinished stuff (although, this happens rarely, because no big changes are planned for tabSRMM and most changes are small detail improvments of already existing features).

The following are the release notes for the current build - the version number is already at 0.9.9.99

Code:
* improvments for own avatar display. Now, this uses the avatar service (minimum
  version 0.0.1.11) for managing your own avatars. tabSRMM now always shows the proper
  avatar you have configured for a given protocol under Main Menu -> View/Change my details.
 
  Setting your own avatar in the message window is possible (right click your avatar image
  and choose "Set your avatar...". However, the menu entry may appear grayed which means
  that the protocol does not support setting the avatar from "outside" its own option
  pages. Currently, only MSN allows to set the avatar using an external service.

+ added workaround for the "Unknown Contact" problem with some protocols (fallback to
  non-unicode nickname). (unicode build only).
 
+ added EXPERIMENTAL feature - real time message log trimming.
 
  What the.... ?
 
  This feature was inspired (or suggested) by one user on the forum. At first,
  i thought that it is almost impossible to implement with the rich edit control as
  our message history viewer. But I found a reasonable way to do it anyway.
 
  It is for people who are rarely closing their message windows. As a result, a growing
  message history in the chat window(s) may consume HUGE amounts of memory, especially when
  emoticons and message log icons are enabled.
 
  The solution? Trim the message log to a maximum number of events (e.g. 200) - older events
  will disappear from the top of the message history and only the N most recent events
  will remain in the chat window. As a result, memory requirements may drop significantly.

  The feature is different from the already exsting "load N number of old history events",
  because it works in "real time". Whenever a new message is sent or received, the
  message history will be trimmed at the top so that only old text will disappear.
 
  How to use?
  Set the global limit for all message windows on the "Message Log" options page. A per-
  contact setting is also available in the "tabSRMM settings" dialog which you can reach
  from the contacts context menu. The per contact setting overrides the global value.
 
  NOTE: changing this setting will not affect message windows which are already open,
so you need to close and re-open them.
 
  One word of warning, though. This feature has a side effect. In order to "know" where to cut
  off the message history, markers need to be placed in the text. The markers are hidden
  number sequences (which actually correspond to database event handles), but when you copy
  text from the log, the rich edit control will copy the hidden text. As far as I know, there
  is no way to avoid this.
 
  Also, depending on your template, the top of the message log may not always look perfectly
  formatted, because text is removed from the top only.
 
  NOTE2: won't work with IEView as IEView uses a completely different way of displaying
messages and tabSRMM has no control over the contents of the IEView message history
window.

! FIX: Alt-M didn't properly create the embedded multisend contact list.

+ added a color control for setting the info panel fields background color to the font
  configuration dialog. Previously, this was only possible with font service.

* improved avatar display on the info panel. Avatars will no longer waste horizontal space
  if their width is smaller than their height (like most ICQ avatars). The size of the
  avatar field is now properly calculated so that the avatar fits.
  Also, the info panel does no longer show the "unknown" avatar for contacts which don't
  have a contact picture available. You may use the "protocol picture" feature of avatar service
  for setting fallback images on a per protocol basis.

* redesigned the info panel somewhat. The ugly check box is gone, the fields have been
  re-arranged to allow more space for the nickname.

Is there any reason to keep the original SRMM? TabSRMM has a single window mode, for those who like that.

Simplicity :)

Something which tabSRMM can not (yet) provide. Many people have problems with setting up all the features. What misses from tabSRMM is a "quick config" feature which allows to setup basic things fast and w/o having to dig through 5 pages of options. It is certainly nice to have all these options and many advanced users wouldn't like to live without them, but a first time user may find himself lost pretty easily.

When I search for "tabsrmm" on miranda filelisting, the first result is
http://miranda-im.org/download/details.php?action=viewfile&id=1401

and the current tabsrmm is the 6th one down.
Is it possible to edit the old tabsrrm download page to include text at the top of the description part with a "This version has been superseded by TabSRMM unicode 0.9.9.98
http://miranda-im.org/download/details.php?action=viewfile&id=2457" in red colour or something like that so people know the correct version to get and not download the old version?

No, because it has not been superseded. In future, the 0.0.8 will be replaced by the non-unicode releases (which is not yet available, but will be with the next release - .99).

No ETA. This is something which won't ever happen with the current code base + core design where 1vs1 IM sessions are completely differently handled than multiuser chats.

Chat.dll handles multiuser conversations quite well (or at least well enough).

The core needs a better overall session design to make a unified message window (which handles everything) possible.

It is. The unicode nightly contains a unicode tabsrmm.

The filenames are, however, somewhat confusing. Both are named tabsrmm.dll - but this is common for nightlys, because the are complete builds. The uniocde clist_classic is also just clist_classic.dll.

The options have been simplified. They are still available when you switch the event notifications to "Don't use simple mode".

They are only temporarily disabled.

Argh, another problem in 0.9.9.99 - my MSN avatar has suddenly disappeared. The avatar options button does not let me "Toggle Avatar Display" (it is greyed out). I can set my avatar, but tabsrmm does not show it.

I have checked that my MSN avatar is visible in UserInfoEx...

My ICQ avatar is fine.

The weird thing is, I am sure my MSN avatar was visible last night!

1. Toggle avatar is greyed when the avatar mode is not set to "per contact".

2. Own avatars are working as they should with latest avatar service

My problem is related to the fact that my *own* MSN avatar won't show in the container. My ICQ avatar displays fine. When I check my user info, I can see my MSN avatar, but tabsrmm doesn't seem to detect it.

My original setting for avatars was "On, if present." I changed that to "Always on", and now my own MSN avatar is the generic shadow face, indicating a "missing" avatar...

Avatars of my contacts all seem to display fine.

Something wrong in your setup. The feature works fine for MSN, ICQ and jabber

Yes, because it does not use avatar service for own avatars. It just seems that avatar service is not finding your msn avatars which basically means they are saved to a non-standard location.

I fixed my problem by converting it to bmp...when MSN avatar.bmp exists, everything is fine. It doesn't work otherwise...
But that is quite strange because avatar service won't recognise the png format.

Then it needs imgdecoder.dll

Thanks, that will fix it.

As an aside, does anyone know if there is a central location to download imgdecoder.dll? I have seen many different versions floating around.

http://forums.miranda-im.org/showthread.php?t=4738&highlight=imgdecoder

I think, this should be the latest one. It is fairly stable (older imgdecoder versions can cause crashes because of known overflows in libpng or zlib - could be even a security risk - when loading some PNG images).


Cool, thanks. That was the version I favoured myself, because it should have fewer unpatched flaws.

Rule #1:

Before posting a "bug report", read the forum, the bugtracker, try the latest build etc. The issue has been fixed already.

Rule #2:

Also, if you find something "annoying" in nightly builds - don't use them. They are for testing purpose and for people who can deal with such issues.

I have this situation, XP with 3 users with different permissions and none of then cant see they own avatar (MSN protocol) i put imgdecoder.dll and avatar service buy nothing happen if I set globally ON I can see the black guy but never my avatar (that not happen with 98 version of tabsrmm) I thing that could be a problem with the location as you saw.

I would have a simple question: which is the dedicated, default key that stores the MSN avatar path and in which module is it placed? I have found AvatarFile string in ICQ and Jabber, but no sign of such key in MSN. Also, there are one to three keys in ContactPhoto module that contain paths to some avatar pictures. I wonder why George doesn't go with the flow and use the same AvatarFile string as the other protocols. It would definitely simplify things for Avatar Service.
I could also ask why imgdecoder.dll or -in extremis- gdiplus.dll aren't globally used for image handling, rather than PngImg.dll + Png2dib.dll + Imglib.dll + Imgdecoder.dll + gdiplus.dll, but that would be one too many rhetorical questions for today.  ;)

There is no such key for MSN. MSN always stores the avatars in the MSN subfolder. The folder is created relative to the directory holding the profile (usually, Mirandas main directory, but it can also be in the users home directory).

I any way, the avatar service works fine with msn, icq and jabber. No idea about other protocols, but these protocols are the only protocols with full support for own avatars anyway.

Done and works with avatar service if everything is configured properly. I can see all my own avatars for each protocol i use (i use 2 MSN, 2 Jabber and ICQ and all avatars are fine).

The difference between 98 and 99 is that 99 uses avatar service and 98 did not.

Well, it works for me. That's the only thing I can tell you at the moment. I don't have the time for more investigations right now (and that won't change for the next few weeks, maybe months - due to some rl changes, my time is limited and i'll only fix real bugs in tabsrmm and my other plugins).

I don´t know what happen maybe my xp is in Spanish..... the thing is, if I put my profile.dat in Miranda directory and change Miranda.ini ProfileDir=. works well, but when I change my Miranda.ini ProfileDir=%APPDATA%/Miranda, don´t.... I thing that you find the avatar (MSN in my test) in Miranda´s path instead the path ProfileDir of Miranda.ini file. is my modest opinion, please don´t get me wrong, I never want to tell you how to do the things.

I don´t want to waste more of your time I only want to tell you that something is working wrong, I always appreciate your answers and all of your work.

Thank you.

I guess there's some truth in the man's words. I recently noticed that after changing the profiles' path in mirandaboot.ini to .\Profiles, the MSN avatar does not appear in My Details frame anymore.
-I checked if the picture file is present: yes, it is, in %mirandapath%\Profiles\MSN\MSN avatar.png. Assuming my system could have (although it doesn't) any issues with PNG images, I created a copy of it, converted to GIF, in the same folder.
-I deleted and reset my MSN avatar from UserInfoEx dialog. Operation went succesfully. I opened a conversation with a MSN user, asked him if he can see my avatar and what does he see, and he said "yes" and described my avatar.
-I asked Ricardo Pescuma directly about the way My Details retrieves the own avatars and he said his plug-in totally relies on Avatar Service, so he only displays what Avatar Service offers.

Given that all other avatars (ICQ and 2 of Jabber) show properly after the profiles folder change and this happens with two other Miranda installations of mine, on the same machine, that have been modified in the same manner, I am inclined to believe that there could be something in Avatar Service that stops it from updating the own MSN avatar from a different path than %mirandapath%.

Then file it as known issue, but don't expect a fix in the near future (at least, not from me, as I don't have the time).

Sure, I got that. The information is here, so whenever you (or anybody else) will have time and will to look over it, you know where to find it.
I hope everything's fine in your RL, no major problems.

I thought it would rather fit in here, than posting on miranda-im.org ;)
With the latest two tabsrmm versions from nightly builds the container taskicon disappeared, when its title bar is hidden. Instead only the nickname and status is shown.
Not very critical, but somehow annoying.
Good work so far, keep on!  :biggrin:

Ok, so like the first post stated, it is in the nightlies. I take it this means you wont be releasing versions on this website for now? It will just be released in the nightlies.

I see the changes in the changelog, so that is where we would look for what's new.

(so will it be 1.0 soon? ;) )

Whoops. I have unicode one checked off, although I use/get the nonunicode nightlies. Guess this means I have been using an outdated version for a while. I better switch it (I don't need unicode anyway, just thought unicode was better).
