Nokia has just announced the 'Internet Communications Software development update 2' for OS2008. The new update features support for more Instant Messaging protocols (mostly all of what Pidgin supports -- note however that not all protocols are currently activated),* local networking chat, a chat log history viewer, and SIP support. Note however that you have to be in 'red-pill mode' in order to install the update. Note that some limitations still exist such as,* no audio/video call support for the new protocols and local network chat,* no avatar support for local chat, and no new contact authorization for the new protocols. I haven't installed this update yet on my Internet Tablet so if anyone would be kind enough to take a screenshot of the new protocols screen as well as the local network chat screen, that would be great!

Hi!

Sounds like the RTCOMM package. It is a AIM/MSN/YAHOO/JABBER/etc. integration in the existing IM client for the nokia. Same layout as for Gtalk.

Regards,

Rafael

WARNING: this software upgrade disables some of the Application Manager functionality, so the official system packages won't get updated automatically. But still you can update these packages manually using the apt-get utility or the Application Manager in the "red pill" mode.
This warning is causing me to hesitate.

Hmm. My AppManager keeps working. And y get my updates by using the root mode and apt-get dist-upgrade.

It worked fine for me.
