Description Nicolò Chieffo 2009-04-25 04:12:42 UTC
Currently, it's not possible to send (and receive) offline messages. Nor to chat with invisible users.
Comment 1 Nicolò Chieffo 2009-05-29 02:31:27 UTC
Reading the pymsn feature list here http://telepathy.freedesktop.org/wiki/Pymsn it seems that offline messages are already supported.

Shhould we close this bug? or does telepathy-butterfly have to add support for them too?
Comment 2 Will Thompson 2009-05-29 02:56:39 UTC
Well, do they work in Butterfly? If so, the bug is fixed; if not, it is not!
Comment 3 Nicolò Chieffo 2009-05-29 03:01:34 UTC
Simply, how can I test it?
I only know empathy as a way to test telepathy, but empaty does not let to open chat windows with offline (or apparently offline) users
Comment 4 Will Thompson 2009-05-29 04:17:13 UTC
Sure it does! Show offline contacts, and then double click one.

If that doesn't work, then butterfly is broken.
Comment 5 Nicolò Chieffo 2009-05-29 04:53:14 UTC
Double click does nothing. (empathy 2.26)
in empathy 2.27.1 everyone is always shown as offline, so I don't know if it is an empathy bug.

the telepathy-butterfly version is 0.3.3 which is dated 6 Jan 2009
the pymsn version is 0.3.3 which is dated 05-Aug-2008

I can't find the telepathy-butterfly webpage, because I would like to see what it is currently supported.
Comment 6 Nicolò Chieffo 2009-06-08 17:04:02 UTC
Don't you think we should raise the priority in order to achieve feature parity with pidgin?
Comment 7 Olivier Le Thanh Duong 2009-06-17 07:01:22 UTC
This is effectively a problem with Butterfly not supporting OIM and so refusing to open a channel with disconnected users.
Comment 8 Olivier Le Thanh Duong 2009-09-14 07:04:15 UTC
This branch implement OIM support, both for sending and receiving message
Comment 9 Olivier Le Thanh Duong 2009-09-20 06:54:36 UTC

What's the status of this branch? I had a little look at it and it looked okay. It'd be cool if Louis-Francis could take a look though.

It'd be nice to get this merged.

Merged into master :)
