"Not bad at all for still being in BETA"

March 12, 2013  |  By jc_ris

 |  Version: Win Bus Messenger 1.0.63

Pros

Runs on Linux, FreeBSD, and MAC with just wine and ie6. Been using winbus on debian linux for near 4 years now and never had one single error or problem.

Cons

The fact that its beta still, it has frequent updates.

Summary

Out of all the private messengers out there, I would only use winbus. It does everything I need in a messenger, and then some.

Hello WinBus users i've noticed in the last few days people have had issues with their voice in WinBus chat, Lee has done all he can do to troubleshoot this issue and we have the datacenter looking into it now but a few users let users from the rooms in their pc's to try to help them if you need support for WinBus you should only let the WinBus assigned Admins help you, it's nice to have people try to help us out and try to tell the users ways to fix things but connecting to a users pc should only be done by the assigned admins for WinBus support
(why would you let anyone let alone these people access your pc remotely on the pretext of them helping you with so called issues with winbus ? ), a very dubious practice and not the sort of advice you would exspect from any admin , would you let a total stranger access to your pc ? , welcome to a botnet .

"Very nice little messenger"

December 16, 2012  |  By ratdingo

 |  Version: WinBus Messenger 1.0.45

Pros

Nice clean interface that's skinable to match your desktop. Very easy to use. Nice safe chat rooms.

Cons

I know its BETA, and there coming soon, but webcams would be great.

Summary

All in all a nice little messenger, and chat program. The voice was kinda shakey in the user made rooms, but since they more less fixed that, theres really no complaints from me.

What's new in version 1.0.113
  • Added: Textual shadows, this can be configured by using the new icon to the right of the Underline button in your chat or private message window
  • Added: Username shadows, this can be configured in your usual spot where you would set up username background, etc
  • Added: Clear History button on right clicking the lower left status bar in the chat window to empty out your history window and to reset the label back to Welcome to Chat
  • Added: Christmas Decorations! You can disable these by going to the top of your chat window, and clicking 'Grinch Mode', and do the same again to enable them. Note: Any custom chat background you previously were using will be overridden by these decorations, enable Grinch Mode to return back to your previous state
  • Fixed: Chat screen pause with newer CEF rendering library
  • Fixed: Contact Request - if you clicked just the X on the window, it could lead to undesirable results, this should now be the same as clicking the Deny button manually
  • Improved: Weird dates potentially show in the Offline Private Messages window, these should be resolved, but this is only an attempted fix as we are unable to recreate at this time and are still investigating, the work around temporary solution will be to eradicate weird dates (1899 for example) and replace them with modern dates in the case of being unable to detect correct date and time
  • Fixed: If you used the contact search field then right clicked and remove the user, it would show you a weird icon in the list til you manually cleared the search field, this is now resolved
  • Improved: Singular Display Picture viewer would previously show you an error message that was not clear about what had occurred. Now this will be clearer, and explain if the user simply has not set a picture yet
  • Improved: When you create a room previously the validation rule in the program was not matching the server side validation rule, which meant you could try to create a room and it would simply do nothing, now it should show an adequate error message as required
  • Fixed: Newer CEF rendering engine would randomly have issues with your custom background when you tried to use them, this should be resolved
  • Attempted Fix: iTunes access violation, unfortunately we were unable to recreate this as yet so will continue to investigate if our attempt at fixing it has succeeded
  • Fixed: Find window was not in read-only mode and was editable, leading to potential confusion
  • Attempted Fix: At random, people would experience a blank chat window or private message window with the newer CEF rendering engine, a fix has been attempted, but we were not able to recreate this issue on our end therefore, would seek to continue to investigate whether or not this fix succeeded and indeed if there is perhaps a better way to do this
