Prepare for AIM deprecation
« on: 06 10 2017, 18:30:27 »
https://help.aol.com/articles/aim-discontinued - also a notice to people who still for some reason use AIM :3 Migrate.

I suggest looking into the dummy protocol if you're interested in keeping histories for contacts whom you don't have on any other protocol.

I think that page is a great summary of AOL attitude.
- We're excited, no matter what you think, just shut up and give your money.

Yeah I agree. Like, the FAQ question "why is AIM ending"

it doesn't answer anything. It just says they're excited about bringing us the best. What does that even mean, lol.

Can someone (with AIM account) check if it is still working or we can safely drop AIM support?

It's dead from what I can see. Just stays offline when you try to connect with no messages that the service is dead or anything like that.

OK, AIM support was completely removed from Miranda.
