I've made a few more minor bug fixes to the tab class and SMS support. Hopefully this will be the final version of 1.4.7 assuming I don't run into any other problems.

Changes from 1.4.7 beta 2:

  • (Improvement) Deleting logs in the log viewer now moves the log to the trash rather that immediately deleting it.
  • (Bug) Log viewer now shows when a search is active.
  • (Bug) Improved behavior of the new message indicator on the overflow menu.
  • (Bug) Added a warning message that displays when an invalid SMS number is given
  • (Change) Updated to newer version of PSMTabBarControl class.

I love the Chax addon so much. iChat is actually usable thanks to your work. Have you considered giving the Apple Terminal the tabs treatment? That's really the only thing it's missing too.

Thanks very much for Chax, it's very helpful. Is there a way to enable sending SMS messages to offline contacts? If someone's online, I'd prefer to send an IM, but if they're offline an SMS still works great. Thanks again for Chax!

Hi! Can you pleeeease let us set auto-away delay to 1 minute? I would really appreciate it. Or if you can tell me how to mod it so that it will set my status to idle after 1 minute, that would be great :D Cheerio and keep up the good work!

Just to follow up, Kent pointed out that the offline SMS option _is_ available.

Kent, I may have submitted this bug before, but its still appearing to be the case in 1.4.7b3: When clicking on the video chat icon to the right of a user's name, it always initiates a video chat with the user directly below it instead. Right clicking on a user and selecting 'Invite to video chat' does not cause this same behavior. Removing the Chax app returns the behavior to normal. Please feel free to email any questions or video captures if you would like to see it in action! Thanks!

Dear Kent: I would *really* love a feature that would allow you to view a conversation in "plain text" mode, rather than the bubbles, where the message sender's screen name appears with a timestamp before the message a la AIM. This would make copy-pasted conversations a lot easier to understand. Wanna help me out? Very good things could happen if you do...

Hey, I just wanted to say I completely enjoy Chax 100 percent and I have no complaints. Before downloading it, when I simply used iChat as it was, there were many things that annoyed me about it, and I was unhappy that I couldn't get a good version of AIM either. But Chax has made things great, and so much easier to use. Thanks! :]
