It seems that a lot of people can't wait to get some of the more basic features back from Chax, so I'm posting a very, very early build of Chax that will work on 10.5. There is no installer yet, the download simply contains a SIMBL bundle that should be put in ~/Library/Application Support/SIMBL/Plugins. PlugSuit or SIMBL is required to load Chax into iChat 4.As it stands, the following features have been reimplemented:
- Auto-resizing contact list
- Customizable contact list fonts (except for group headers, which probably won't be coming back)
- Growl notifications
- Log viewer (about 90% functional)
- Possibly fixed the ICQ/HTML bug (unconfirmed)
Please, please, please don't take this to mean that I can reimplement every little feature that is missing from Chax in 10.4 immediately. Features will be added as I'm able to do so and I'll be posting newer builds as I go.This build is not meant to be posted on MacUpdate, VersionTracker, or other software update sites.
