aMSN 0.95 released after more than a year

By Justin Mann on December 26, 2005, 5:59 PM
One of the most popular MSN clients for Linux recently got it's first update in over a year. aMSN 0.95 is out, including a host of new features that make it more compatible with the Windows client. It adds things including direct file transferring, multiple account support, webcam support, conferencing and tabbed windowing, a definite advantage that GAIM had as a client. It is a bit more robust than the standard messenger client, but aMSN is, of course, MSN-specific and not a multiple-protocol client like GAIM or Trillian. If you use it, definitely get the latest version. If you use MSN in Linux, give it a try.

Defineitly a good work by those guys. I wonder if Microsoft encourage this... I tend to think not :)After all, GAIM and Trillian are not only Microsoft buissness, and they are intend to use in Windows too. But as I understand this, aMSN is for MSN Messesnger only, for linux. weird :|

I'm glad that aMSN 0.95 is released. I'm a fan of instant messaging, and the more accessories a program has, and the simpler its presented only spells out the best in real time communication. I think I'll really enjoy the WebCam support.

never heard of aMSN. I really want to learn linux but just never got the time to do so. It's nice that the new features are included but it would even be better if it can include the features of multi-protocol as it will really unite all the MSN softwares.

Perhaps Microsoft will try to kill Linux from the inside?
