JBother 0.8.5

Hey all, I’'m about to release JBother 0.8.5. JBother is now over a year and a half old!

JBother is a Jabber client written in pure Java (1.4.x). It supports groupchat in a tabbed window, multiple resources, transport registration (so you can get on AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, and ICQ through JBother), sounds for different events, has several different skins, and should run on any platform that has the JRE installed (I have personally seen it working on Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, and OS X).

  • Profile Manager
  • Optional Tabbed Window for All Conversations
  • Plugin API/Support
  • Windows Plugin (includes systray support)
  • Look and Feel Plugin
  • Plugin Manager - Allows Installation of Plugins from Within JBother
  • Emoticon Theme Switcher
  • Emoticon Chooser

You can find it at http://www.jbother.org



Hey Adam,

Congratulations on the new release. Just out of curiosity, are you using the new Multi-User Chat functionality or the old Groupchat?

It’'s still the old groupchat. MUC to come soon! hehe.

how do you make heart icons in Jbother? e.g. makes a smiley

I only put a few emoticons - so there’'s no heart

I found where to add them
