Hi all,

I've made a complete rewrite and redesign of Todd Bradley et al's
jabberlib, which are client libraries written in tcl.

Everything is now completely OO, so you may have several instances 
of jabberlib, each connected to a different server. The roster is 
an object as well that communicates with both jabberlib and the 

This is an "alpha" release, and some parts are completely
untested, such as 'groupchat', for instance. There are also
some open questions, in particular, exactly when and where
roster items are set.

Even if your client is in C/C++ it is fairly simple to integrate
tcl in it. This way the client becomes much more configurable
and easier to maintain (and the tcl part is of course completely
cross platform).

Download TclXML from "http://hem.fyristorg.com/matben/tclxml2.0p1.tar.gz",
jabberlib from "http://hem.fyristorg.com/matben/JabberLib1.0a1.tar.gz",
and the core Tcl/Tk from "http://dev.scriptics.com"

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Enjoy,   Mats Bengtsson   (matben at privat.utfors.se)
