I'm looking for owners of http and ftp sites that can host new versions of chat. I'm using free hosting sites during more then two years now. Some time ago all such providers started to delete accounts because they don't like direct links on the files that don't show their banners. I understand that. Traffic cost money and 1 MB of chat installation can generate a lot of traffic especially during last time when it became popular.

Intranet Chat is freeware program. Therefore as you understand I can't pay for the hosting but I don't want to make it shareware in the near future.

If you like ichat, want to support it, have a web site and can afford additional traffic then drop me a letter. But if you have paid outgoing traffic then probably this propose is not for you because this can give 100 downloads in one day or even more.

I will say you "Big thank you" and will put your or your company banners and links on chat home page. This is the only thing that I can do.

09.07.2001

Some problems were found in last beta version. I started to use Delphi 5 to avoid some problems but unfortunately it gave another problems.

- Popup menu in main chat appear not always. Menu with list of opened chats is shown Instead of it.
- Smiles from menu in toolbar contain & inside.

These problems are not critical but ...

01.04.2001

Chat is updated to version 1.12b2

Full list of changes:

[+] - Chat is compiled using Delphi 5. By this old problem with MS Netmeeting is fixed. When Netmeeting was started chat usually was closed with error. The same happened with Delphi 4 itself. They don't like to work together and where the problem is in Netmeeting or Delphi I don't know.
[+] - Some users where confused that chat doesn't show repeated own messages. They thought that it also doesn't send anything repeatedly but it wasn't the case. Chat always sent messages but they were skipped like repeated messages. Now it will not skip them and show all of them.
[+] - Fixed potential error in ignoring repeated messages. Probably this error was the reason why sometimes chat show a lot of exception messages but I'm not sure because I couldn't get them myself ...
[+] - State (visible/invisible) for floating window with chat state was not stored.
[+] - DLL for supporting "Automatic away mode" is rewritten on Visual C++. Problems with different programs when chat is running have to be fixed. At least problem with MouseImp when it was started before chat is fixed. If somebody still has problems with different applications write to me.
[+] - When connection with chat server was broken user was duplicated. This new user was left after refresh but it has two addresses in his IP.
[*] - Ignoring messages also work with alerts.
[*] - For each language it's possible to set help file (HelpFile key in each section). If language is not set then English help file is used.
[*] - You can choose default language of chat interface during the installation.
[*] - Supported languages: Czech, Dutch, English, French (made but Russian guy and
your changes are welcome ;-), German, Hungarian, Polish, Russian, Slovak, 
Spanish (Catala), Swedish.

18.03.2001

DLL for supporting "Automatic away" function is rewritten on Visual C++. Users that have problem with this function can try this new version and send your comments to me. I want to know if it works right now and if some programs still can't work correctly when chat is running and "Automatic away" function is on.

With this new version MouseImp that didn't work if it was started before chat now works with no problems.

I also got translated files for Swedish and Slovak languages. You can take archive with all supported languages from here or here. Now it contains translated files for Dutch, English, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Spanish (Catala) and Swedish languages.

Your translations are welcome.

12.03.2001

Chat is updated to version 1.12b1

In this version changed multi language support. Now all strings are in the special text files and you can easy translate everything on your native language if you want. For more information look into the English.ini file. Translations on some languages are already made and included in this beta version.

If you will make translations on your native language send translated file to me and I will include it into the next version.

This version also is not compatible with previous chat server. If you want to test it mail to me. If no serious bugs will be found it will be available for everybody.

Full list of changes:

[*] - rewritten work of chat with TCP/IP and dedicated server. These bugs are fixed:
1. Sometimes chat lost messages.
2. Problems with opening private chats.
3. Sometimes users had problem if they were under the same firewall.
[*] - it's possible now to run two copies of chat. One that will work on mailslots and another that will work with dedicated server.
[*] - it's possible to select smile from the list like it is for the quick messages and insert it into the message.
[*] - if after marking text in the message window you will still hold left mouse button and press right mouse button then selected text will be inserted into the message in the current cursor position.
[*] - message that is sent more then one time during 5 seconds (repeated message) will be displayed only one time.
[*] - under the Windows 9x chat will not show 100% processor usage anymore. Its work under these operation systems is changed. This fixes problem with too high processor temperature if processor is overlocked.
[*] - multilanguage support is changed. Now all strings are in the special text file and you can translate everything on your native language if you want. For more information look into the English.ini file. In this version already included support for Polish, Spain (Catala) (first version and may be not finished) and Dutch languages.

27.02.2001

During all time I got many proposes to translate IChat on other then English or Russian languages. I was not ready for this. It could take too much time to do this by way how multi-language support was done. Finally I decided to fully rebuild it and now it's ready.

In new version multi-language support will be changed. All strings that are used in the chat will be stored like text in separated files for each supported language. Now it's easy to translate them on other language.

If you want to translate IChat of your native language write to me or find me in ICQ. UIN 25783522. I will send you necessary files. I could put then on the web but in this case I can get a lot of versions for each language ... May be it's interesting but I don't think so ;-)

For guys that already gave me proposes to translate chat on other languages ...

If you are still interested write to me or find me in ICQ. UIN 25783522. I already sent files to the people that will translate it on French and Spanish languages.
