Nota Bene: this project is currently unsupported by me. There are several reasons:
If you want to support this project, feel free to drop me a letter. We'll discuss it.
- the lack of time
- The vast majority of my friends use Jabber. Which is more flexible then ICQ and has open protocol.
- There is no fun for me to find new protocol changes every month as it was before :)
- CVS has been moved to cvs.bluezbox.com
vICQ is simple ICQ client written in PERL with look & fill of micq and
works fine with v7 protocol of ICQ. It based on Net::ICQ2000 module
written by Robin Fisher
and slightly modified by me.
