SIM-IM 0.9.4.2 and 0.9.4.3 use version 9 of the Oscar protocol.

At the moment (24th September, 2007) the latest version of Oscar protocol is 11. To my knowledge, so far it is used in the official ICQ client and in QIP.

File transfers don´t work between the latest version of QIP and SIM-IM 0.9.4.3. I tried this with several users of QIP. It´s not related to my firewall and router settings, as it used to work fine, when I used QIP. File transfers don´t seem to work with ICQ 5.1 users either, but I only tried this with one person. SIM 0.9.4.3 to SIM 0.9.4.2 file transfers seem to work fine.

I don´t see any user pictures in SIM-IM 0.9.4.3 for users of ICQ 5.1, of the latest version of QIP, of SIM-IM 0.9.4.2. I used to see all the user pictures in QIP.

Once I didn´t receive 4 messages in a row from a QIP (latest version) user. I was online in SIM-IM 0.9.4.3. The other time I sent a message to a QIP user, who was offline. He didn´t receive it.

I think, all the mentioned problems are connected with the fact, that various versions of the Oscar protocol are not fully compatible with each other. And I think, this is the problem of the ICQ owners approach, not of the creators of various alternative ICQ-clients.
