The chat4all webchat has been updated to version 1.5.2. This was a minor update, which constitutes mostly of implementing a new version of jPilot and adding a few parameters.
However, the results of this update are quite significant, because this new jPilot version has a few exciting features that we know people have been asking for for some time now:
- Multiple channels (chatrooms) - As of this version, chatters can use multiple channels at the same time. So this means you no longer have to quit one channel in order to enter the next. All open channels are listed in the part of the screen where you also see the users. Only one channel can be active however, but if someone says something in a channel you have open, but which is not active, a star will flash behind it. To access that channel, simply click on it
- Saving to clipboard - People have been asking us for years why it wasn't possible to save text. This new version of jpilot now has that option. Simply select the rows you want to copy, and you can copy it to the clipboard
- Clicking on links - Now you can click on links without your chat window being overwritten. Clicking a link will now result in a new browser window opening.
- DCC file transfer - It is now possible to transfer files between users by means of DCC. Users can do this by clicking on a user, and then use the right mouse button and select the file transfer option. This is a nice feature... however, caution is advised. Do not accept a file transfer unless you know and trust that person. Also, transferred files have their extension changed automatically, so you have to change back that file extension.
We hope you like these new features, which will hopefully enhance your chat experiences. Soon, work will start on creating a better code generator, since this one has aged a bit, and webmasters will have the option to further customize the chat window by changing more colours, and text sizes.
