08/02 - 0.9.6-1

  • First version to allow access to telepathy accounts (skype, google talk, theonering - google voice, ...)
  • Integration with fMMS to send MMS
  • Allow to set "routing" priorities separately for local calls, international calls, local sms, international sms.
  • long click on phone button will open phone application and allow user to pick the accout to use 
  • online accounts window to help debug online accounts, view contacts and start voice or text chats.
  • Allow to initiate calls using Skype Out and/or Google voice calls (through calls)

07/15 - 0.9.1-1

  • show contacts presence status on applet, border color:
    • green: online
    • yellow: multiple online accounts with different status
    • gray: away
    • black  (invisible): offline
    • color assigned to applet border: contact does not have any online accounts attached to it
  • improved startup/reload time
  • reduced memory footprint (for contacts with avatars)
  • added status to skype button on contact details window
  • Avatar view on application shows unaltered version of image associated up to 120x120. Doesn't look as good as before but it is quicker and requires less memory. Please request a new setting to control this if you don't like it.
  • VICaR integration: allows changing the setting as long as VICaR is installed (even if disabled). Please note that VICaR will handle the call from MyContact even when disabled (my preferred way so it does not try to handle any international calls that I place some other way)
  • allow to assign contacts w/o avatars to groups
  • stylesheet for "select contacts" window
  • changed layout of "select contacts" window: "not selected" list is displayed as a "list" and "selected" will display avatars on their "native" resolution
  • "select contacts" window: the contacts added to the group will keep showing on the left side (not selected -> all contacts)
  • changed style sheet for skypebutton (contact_portrait.css, contact_landscape.css)
