Small insignificant bug [Jan. 31st, 2001|03:52 pm]
mIRC LiveJournal Client



I've identified a small bug in the checkfriends support in mIRC-LJ. The bug causes the checkfriends support to be activated even if login fails, and was caused by me putting the code to start the checking in slightly the wrong place. When your login is incorrect, it will attempt to initialise checking but since the username and password it sends are blank this will fail and checking won't continue. The only ill-effects from this will arise if you login too quickly after failing login and the connection to the LJ server is still open.

This small bug will be fixed in the next release, but I'm not going to do a minor release to fix it since it's not a big problem and most users will never even see the problem.

Update: I fixed the issue detailed above, and a few other minor things, as well as adding more configurable output since people asked for it. Version 2.2.1 is available now from the mIRC-LJ site, and will be sent to BradFitz at some point this evening.

If you have any problems with the new version, please reply to this post.
