May 10th 2006

  • convert more characters for slsk:// links to webforms
  • the #include <qinputdialog.h> in museeq.cpp was in the wrong place, so it only compiled with QSA which b0rked the build for QSA-less users. (found by chs_kasper )


May 10th 2006

  • Fixed a looping bug that continually checked a buddies address/port if that buddy's port was 0
  • Fixed updated shares filecount by requesting a peer_stats message after reloading shares
  • Discovered that newer Scons versions cause the dialog boxes in Museeq to not compile their slots/functions/buttons correctly. Use the Version of Scons included with Museek-Plus!
  • Add a Toggle Tickers menu item under the Settings menu ( Requiem1348's request)
  • Added the Remote Upload Queue notification message, 52 to aid in sending files to Windows slsk users. But it doesn't seem to help. It also is used for sending a private message if a user trying to send files isn't on your trusted list.
  • Added Help and About dialog boxes
  • Added outgoing private messages from other interfaces being echoed to museeq's
  • Yanked green buddy highlighting in museeq chatrooms, looks bad on a white background.

May 7th 2006

  • Added 'Browse My Shares' menu item to the File menu
  • Reorganized Settings Menu so that with larger fonts the text doesn't get cropped by the different widgets.


May 7th 2006

  • Changed "Awaiting User" to "User Offline" in museeq (mer.lin.ux's idea)
  • Current Museek user's IP is set internally to, to facilitate getting your own Shares and Userinfo. This has the side-effect of not allowing you to see your own external IP-address. Hopefully, you're listening on :) (mer.lin.ux's idea)
  • Added Refresh buttons to Shares and Userinfo (mer.lin.ux's idea)
  • Split some DEBUG messages off into the seperate TT message type, for cleaner museekd status messages. You can enable those messages by adding 'traffictime' to the MULOG variable
  • Implemented the new room/user search messages 120 and 42. Unfortunantly, Soulfind 0.1 -> 0.4.7 are no longer supported for Buddy/Room searching. (Thanks for the Info, sierracat)
  • Added Sending Remote Uploads from museekd and museeq. It now seems to work as expected.
  • Lots of minor changes to the museekd codebase were made to facilitate proper remotely-initated- transfers.
  • A new type of user, Trusted User, can remotely-initate-uploads that download to your system( a previous hack allowed everyone to send you files) Is now toggleable in museeq.
  • Yanked the mostly useless CopyIP popup menuitem in museeq's IP dialog. It caused crashes if no item was selected when the popup menu got created.
  • Added a IFACE messages to disconnect and reconnect museekd to the server, to facilitate username or server changes without having to restart museekd. Had to force reset the server variables to make this possible.
  • Added a IFACE Message to reload shares (NOT rescan)
  • Fixed the QSA Scripts-menu's hotkey to be 'T' instead of the letter 'S' which conflicted with the Settings-menu's (cravings was horrified by this)
  • Rearranged Okay/Cancel dialogs with okay on the Left side. (groovything's idea)
  • Added Museeq Settings Dialog ( includes settings for Server, Username, Password, and a bunch of other config options; a Reload Shares button; Server Disconnect and Connect buttons)


  • Museekd now responds to message 26, and should send out search results for global searches.
  • Added handler for message 41, Museekd gives up connecting if another client has kicked it off the server.
  • use "kill -ALRM museekd' to manually reconnect museekd to the server
  • Added all Interests & Recommendations messages and functions to museekd and museeq.
  • Added all Interests & Recommendations messages to and for Python clients.
  • Added a --version, -V message to museekd, added the version in museeq's titlebar.


  • Added Belegdol's GCC 4.1 fix (changs to museeq/museekdriver.h)
  • Corrected <iostream.h> to <iostream> in museeq's mainwin.cpp (gets rid of GCC warning)
  • Museeq: Ignorelist and Banlist are now uncloseable
  • Added a 'clean' script, a 'build-debug', and a 'build-release' script
  • Added -fPIC to the SConstruct script, so x86_64 users should have an easier time compiling it. Don't know of any side effects for the rest of us.
  • Added some desktop icons and Museeq icon themes to the icons directory
  • Added an rc script for ArchLinux. filename is museekd.rc
  • Added a .desktop file for museeq
