Jimm. Il client ICQ definitivo per cellulari JavaME!



Lo ribadisco, questo è stato davvero il finesettimana dell'Instant Messaging! Dopo eBuddy e Fring, infatti, è stato aggiornato anche un programma di chat open source che si potrebbe definire quasi "storico", vale a dire Jimm.

Per chi non ne avesse mai sentito parlare prima, Jimm è un client ICQ sviluppato in JavaME, che ha fatto la sua prima comparsa su cellulare ai tempi dei terminali Siemens della serie Sx (parecchi anni fa, dunque). Da quei giorni molta acqua è passata sotto i ponti e ICQ non è più il servizio di chat predominante, tuttavia per chi ancora lo utilizzasse, questa nuova release di Jimm, 0.6.090517 beta, rappresenta il non plus ultra, visto il supporto che fornisce ai numerosi servizi accessori.

Dopo il salto, il changelog di questa beta, bello pieno di novità ;)
