Psi 0.15-dev ------------ Date: November 7th, 2009 Maintainers: Justin Karneges (2001-2004, 2009-current) firstname.lastname@example.org http://psi-im.org/ Kevin Smith (2004-2009) email@example.com http://www.kismith.co.uk/ For installation or compiling instructions, see the INSTALL file. This program is licensed under the GNU General Public License. See the COPYING file for more information. Known Issues ------------ The following are known issues with this release: Issues with Qt 4.5.0: Hang on exit, hang when using GnuPG. Issues with QCA <2.0.2 + Qt 4.5: Hang on exit. Issues with qca-gnupg <2.0.0-beta3 + Qt 4.5: Hang when using GnuPG. Notes ----- - QCA -- * QCA 2.x is required to build Psi: a version is bundled with Psi. * The qca-ossl and qca-gnupg plugins are desirable for full functionality of Psi. - Voice Calling -- * The PsiMedia 1.0.x plugin and the qca-ossl plugin are needed to activate the voice calling feature. Source and builds of PsiMedia can be found at: http://delta.affinix.com/psimedia/ On Windows, place gstprovider.dll into the base directory. On Mac, place libgstprovider.dylib into Psi.app/Contents/plugins On Linux, place libgstprovider.so into LIBDIR/psi/plugins - Upgrading to 0.12 -- * During the upgrade process, the old config.xml configuration file will be imported into the new option.xml format. Neither file should now be edited by hand, since all options are exposed in the options window. Config.xml can be safely removed once the upgrade is complete. - GnuPG tips -- * Always use the latest version of GnuPG. * On Windows, use a native build instead of one based on cygwin, and make sure it is properly installed in the registry. * Ensure 'gpg' actually works, by testing it from the command-line. * You must have a public and secret keyring. Psi cannot operate without them, and they must be there when you start it.

Its design goals are simplicity and stability. Psi is highly portable and runs on Windows, Unix/X11, and Mac OS X. The interface is very ICQ-like. Alerts appear in the contact list when events are received, and things like subscriptions requests appear as "system messages" (ICQ users know these well). Even "Chats" are queued in the contact list. Also, chats are "remembered" by default, so that you don't have to keep a bunch of windows open for each person. Just close the chat window. If you open it again it will all be there. Psi is minimal but powerful. There are keybindings for just about everything, Unicode is supported throughout, and contacts are cached offline. Security is also a major consideration, and Psi provides it for both client-to-server (SSL) and client-to-client (GnuPG). How you can help ---------------- Comments -------- We like comments, even (especially) if they are a simple thanks. Bug reports ----------- If you want to help us out, please file a bug report on our forum at http://forum.psi-im.org/forum/2 for release versions, or email us a bug report to the development mailing list for development builds, details at: http://lists.affinix.com/listinfo.cgi/psi-devel-affinix.com Please be as descriptive as possible and tell us what exactly you were doing at the time something went wrong. If possible, send us a stack backtrace. Wishes ------ We can't possibly know what everyone wants, so we appreciate all feature requests. These can be submitted to http://forum.psi-im.org/forum/4 Porting ------- Psi should be very portable. Please e-mail us first if you want to port Psi to another platform. Graphics -------- There are many ways to contribute to the Psi project, if you think you can do a better job with any of the Psi graphics, then go right ahead! Sound ----- Same goes for sound. Start mixing! Programming ----------- Patches are welcome. External tools would be useful as well, like Licq conversion utilities (iconsets, message history, etc). Get to work! Packaging --------- Want to make an RPM or something? Financial --------- You can send a paypal gift if you'd like, to email@example.com Have fun, -The Psi team
