Bug #XXXXX — Optional bugs/tasks. We can release without fixing them, though would be good to fix them anyway.

Sim-IM 0.9.6

  • Create TextMessage abstract class:
    • This class should be inherited by protocol specific TextMessages classes
    • All interaction with message: showing, creating new message to send, etc should be done via virtual functions of that class
    • All plugins are able to get incoming message and do something with sending message (which are represented by this class), if they want to by using existing event system (so will need to add some events for it)
  • After TextMessage class is implemented we will be able:
    • Rewrite history plugin
    • Create spam-filter plugin

Sim-IM 0.9.7 and later

  • Create Contat protocol independent generic class
  • Create Group protocol independent generic class
  • Create Protocol protocol independent generic class
