I'm happy to have merely one MSN-only contact in my list, not having
to rely on MSN.
However, from the standpoint of someone working in Trac and in the
forums MSN-Pecan looks like a regression to me. With MSNp9 we knew
there were certain features missing and most users had arranged
themselves with that and I cannot remember any MSN-related crashes.
Now I'm seeing a great influx of reports – a multitude of crashes
(at least nine of them right now!), connection problems, pictures and
aliases not showing and more.
For reference, here you can see all tickets with the "msn-pecan"
I can't say much about libpurple MSNp15 but MSN-Pecan seems almost as
bad what we had before and I never thought I would say that.
