With the last version of the openfire 3.5.0 and the last version of the plugin gateway 1.2.3, the users could not change the nickname in the msn
As far as i know, there is no code that actually updates their nickname/display name in the gateway.
Which can be the problem, for when update the nickname, the change is seen but in the spark, to another side with the person that I am speaking, that it uses msn messenger see nothing change?
Nicknames in your roster should update. -Your- nickname shouldn’t update though. That’s not coded yet. However if you set a nickname of someone in your list and log out and back in it -should- take unless something is misbehaving.
I use the latest release with Psi on my side and have similar issue:
I rename MSN contact, after this contact relogins(or maybe MSN gateway relogins) - it gets an old nick(it’s native nick).
