Jabberwocky (Website)

Instant messenger: Jabberwocky V1.4
Tom Parker and Matthias Münch have released the version 1.4 of the instant messenger 'JabberWocky' for Amiga computers. Jabber is an open XML protocol for a direct message exchange.

A connect with other instant messengers like AIM, ICQ, MSN and Yahoo is possible by using gateways.

Download: Jabberwocky030429.lha

Changes within this version:
  • http.c - Added Content-Type and Filesize to Transfer Header and eliminated null character in the Header. File transfers using WEB Browser now work. Apr 5, 2003
  • transfer.c - Eliminated superflous gadgets from File Transfer window to reduce user confusion. Apr 6, 2003
  • userinfo.c - Added seperate update procedure for Transports to avoid double roster entries. Apr 15, 2003 (Bug ID 584725)
  • roster.c - Replaced double contact removal with seperate removals for Users and Transports. Eliminated subscribing to Transports to avoid double roster entries. Transports are supposed to be registered and not subscribed anyway. Apr 16, 2003
  • agents.c - Added line to clear agents list when connecting. Eliminates multiple agents lists when disconnecting and reconnecting. Apr 20, 2003 (Bug ID 550881)
  • presence.c - Eliminated duplicate subscription requests when disconnecting and reconnecting. Eliminated enforcer hit that occurred if the Subscription Window "Accept" or "Reject" buttons were clicked after the last subscription request was removed. Apr 21, 2003 (Bug ID 554328)
  • roster.c - Added functions to close any open user windows before removing a contact. Also added error_pix to the roster dispose function. Apr 24, 2003 (Bug ID 549722)
  • roster.c - Added functions to close all open user windows before disconnecting. Fixes enforcer hits that occur if you disconnect, reconnect and attempt to use windows that remained open. Apr 25, 2003
Note - The changes I made in roster.c and userinfo.c clear up the enforcer hits that are present in the current prerelease of v 1.4. It doesn't fix the source of the problem though. I think the hits are actually originating in the iksemel library when some unexpected or unusual XML is received. Something may have to be changed there eventually. (nba) (Translation: ub)

Audio track "Call to Ancestors" by Bjorn Lynne online
Bjorn Lynne writes:
"First of all, many many thanks to those of of you who already bought the new CD "Power Liquids", which I released about two weeks ago. This is an album of trance / electronica that I made toghether with my friends in Aural Planet, and it has been extremely well received so far. Thanks again to those of you who have given your support so far, by ordering the CD.

Due to popular demand (!) I have now made one full-length track from the album available to hear online at It's the first mp3 track there. This is in addition to the short mp3 clips from ALL the songs on the CD, which you can still hear at:

While you are at my mp3 page, please give all my other tracks a play as well, as it may help them to get higher in the charts and make more people "discover" my music through the site. Thank you!

And for those of you who have still not discovered the new album: "Power Liquids", you can read all about it (or even order it) here: Your order (should you place one!) will be shipped out within 24 hours by me, personally." (nba) (Translation: ub)

Pegasos: Summary of all the things regarding the Articia
Within a comment at Raquel Velasco and Bill Buck sum up all the mess regarding the Articia chip and confirm the use of the Marvell-Northbridge for the Pegasos II. The support by Marvell and their interest for the Pegasos II is said to be very high.

The Articia-S versions were specified. The northbridges used for the Pegasos I are said to be Articia S #A660BNGP, these were not produced any longer. For testing purpose some of the new Articia S #A660BNGE were purchased.

The specs for the G4 cards (July) and the Pegasos II (September) were confirmed within the comment.

Furthermore links to BeOS pages are listed which cover Genesi's attendance at the BeGeistert show: BeGroovy, BeForever and LeBuzz.

Again the Pegasos II will be offered for a reduced price to the Phoenix members after the demand for the Pegasos I has not been feeded completely.

Finally they tell that Eugenia Loli-Queru, chief editor of OSNews, received a Pegasos so that there will be a report by her soon. (ps) (Translation: ub)

Report of the 19th April C= show
Hello C= fans!

You can find some pics of the last show at our website. On this page you see Thomas Margolf with his SIDsyn and Arndt Oevermann who's working at the demo show. On this page you can see the stereo C64 from Dirk Kledtke. This was a great success and the sound of this machine was unbelievable!

Also there's an English report of the show. The next show we will organize is at June 28! This is a change of date because of some accomodation problems. As extra we organize than an Amiga Party! We want every Amiga freak to join us at this party! Look here for more information. Look here for latest news and new at our homepage is a boulderdash page and a Dutch software page where we wanna archive all Dutch C64 software. Both pages are under construction and will be soon 100% active.

Greetings Ron van Schaik (ps)
