Known issues

See Bugs

Multiuser conversations are not supported:

  • there is no way to add user(s) to already open conversation;
  • when somebody adds you to a multiuser conversation, you'll see his nickname everywhere, while messages are actually posted by different users.

There are still some problems with contact list:

  • contact search doesn't show any found contacts, instead it ADDS them to your contact list;
  • if a user adds you to his/her contact list, you recieve a notification, but cannot open it (i.e. sim just blinks in the dock, but there is no way to see the notification window). restarting sim seems to help, but * don't use MSN and Oscar plugins simultaneously - it may cause some weird contact list problems for ICQ (one example - all ICQ contacts get deleted at some point from server side...). MSN and ICQ separately works fine I think
