This is the first public beta of a plugin for the much requested "Plauderkasten" of Studivz.net/MeinVZ.net
Unfortunately, since they have not opened their API yet, the only way that I found for implementing it, is by using the gateway that Nimbuzz provides to their own client.
That means, that for this plugin to work, you have to have a Nimbuzz.com account and add your StudiVZ account to it.
You can do that by using their web-interface.
Then just enter your newly created nimbuzz account info as well as your svz account info in the plugin panel and your done.
This is still beta and not thoroughly tested, so beware!
Source and Debug builds:
The debug version of the plugin, which emits some helpful messages to the 'Debug Window' of the Adium-Debug Release as well as the source code can now be found here: http://public.me.com/derdoc.
News about updates:
Yes, I do have a blog as well a twitter account.
The blog is at: derdocsblog.wordpress.com.
Twitter account name is (surprise, surpise): derDoc. I will be using tags "#SVZ #Adium".
Although I do not update both with news about my development efforts as much as I would like to.
-Current b5.2 might not work w/ current 1.4b17 of Adium, and my (working) nightly build cannot be released before Adium switches to 64 bit (because current adium sources are already 64bit and I have to build against those).
-Since the breakin @ SVZ they switched all URLs to completely hashed strings, with currently prevents the plugin from being able to fetch the profile page of contacts (pic&status) until I find a way around this.
-When requesting a pic and status refresh for a combined buddy whose SVZ part is offline, it crashes Adium.
-Sometimes crashes when a new buddy, one that hasn't been seen before, logs in (resolved in b5-hopefully)
-Service symbol is sometimes sized wrong (unconfirmed)
-Does not work with OSX 10.4 currently, due to the way an internal library for RegEx support is loaded (which is not supported under 10.4)
-Thanks to the new "feature" of contact list proxies, SVZ buddies will now show up in the group StudiVZ/MeinVZ in addition to wherever you drag them to
-Somehow the Adium window does not notice the change in status of a svz-buddy, when they come online they are online, but still hidden in the list; likewise they remain visible although they signed off (sometimes happens with other networks too, though) - seems to have been solved at least since 1.4b11.
-Fixed plugin not loading because libpurple could not be found (it moved internally).
-Contains code for entering captcha inside Adium. Not fully functional yet, so beware!
-Fixed SVZ fetching of the infamous 'real pix are at SVZ.de' picture instead of real profile pic (just disguise as firefox ;)
-Fixed crash when contact signs in again after a while
-Added options for when to fetch pic+status: [on account connection, on contact sign-on, random, when cached pic is older than 4 weeks, or never]
-Added option to manually fetch profile pic/status to context menu of contacts
-When lots of fetches are being made rapidly (by the 'Über-always' option for example) SVZ presents the User with a Captcha. The Plugin recognizes this now and asks the user to login with a browser to do the captcha (future version might present the captcha right inside of Adium)
-Found the option to tell Adium that plugin does not cache pictures, so Adium should do it: In effect, the user pics are now cached like the names
-Working again with 1.4b6 of Adium
-MVZ/SVZ distinction is now working. Uses the correct URLs for login/profile-fetch depending on type. Should solve some problems with Nick/pic not being fetched.
Most of the crashing now fixed.
first public release.
