THis service is not providing yet a chat client. It expects that the phone has it already. I am currently working on enabling MSN connectivity. However remember this requires that your phone (whatever phone you may have) has a Wireless Village compliant chat client installed.
I hope too that the manufacturers are going to start a mass deployment very soon.

New phones under testing. Nokia 6820 is out there with support for Presence and Chat. We are able to communicate with this phone. Some limitations still apply (eg contact list support and presence notifications). Yet you can communicate with other Yamigo subscribers and even with your Yahoo buddies. Yahoo is not a realiable connection yet.


Cheers,
Bogdan

A new improved version of the server software is deployed at www.yamigo.com.

This version improves the handling of the contact lists, maintaining in memory representation of the contacts. This information is persisted during the current session. We dont support yet to persist this information to the database yet. This is going to be provided next if we see that the phones are requiring it. As of the time of this writing I dont know what is the expectation from phones' perspective. The specs are not enforcing the persistance to permanent store.

Presence information update improved. The publishers are now able to make their status available for others and others can subscribe to publisers' info. Yet I cannot tell that is working for my 6820 test phone. What about you SE and Mot guys?

We still have a bit of probelms making Nokia 6820 to poll for the messages. However if the user is performing activity with the phone then the phone polls for data and info is sent to the terminal. We're currently investigating what the problem is.

So, all you yamigo registrants are kindly pleased to restart their engines and get connected. Also please let me know the feedback as soon as you have one.

Hoping to see u there.
Bogdan

Hi there,
After a few good weeks of work a new version is deployed to Yamigo. This version persists the contact information across sessions. This would allow some phones to retain their contact list if users disconnect from the server.

A small handy feature: to increase the readability we are printing a time stamp for the message. For the moment the time shown is GMT + 2h (Helsinki time ))

Please send any feed back about the new behaviour of the system.

Unfortunately we have some weird looking code to handle a problem we suspect exists in the V600 firmware. The reply to GetList-Request from Motorola is hacked not to have empty content as it would normally have in some conditions eg for a new user.
It would be so nice if some guys from Motorola could confirm this bug in the phone. SonyEricsson T630 and Nokia 6820 and 6220 are not having any problems with it.

Cheers,
Bogdan

Hi there,
After a few good weeks of silence, we are able to announce a new version deployed at Yamigo.

This new version is reestablishing connection to Yahoo. Yet MSN and AIM are not yet supported but they are coming soon as well.

http://www.yamigo.com/content/view/26/2/

We also announce the publishing of a open Java API for integrating new services at Yamigo.

For more information read this.
http://www.yamigo.com/content/view/27/36/

We still have problems passing presence information to and from the phones. So basically this version is not reducing from the known limitations.

Cheers,
Bogdan

Hi there,

After many days of experiencing we are happy to announce that the presence information is now supported for at least SET630.

Also the Yahoo information related to what buddies are online or if a buddy goes offline it is available to the phone.

We are interested if we were able to fix other phones as well (Nokia 6220 6830 6810 6820 and Motorola V600)

Let us know.

Cheers,
Bogdan

Yamigo Relase 0.6 deployed

Monday, 14 June 2004

This version brings AIM connectivity.

It is still in a beta mode. We have problems rendering the content of the message for the phone correctly for WBXML phones (like most of the Nokia's for example). As a result you'll receive a message in your phone but the message will be empty. The sending operation works just fine.

The XML phones should be fine (like most of the SonyEricsson's and Motorola's) and they shouldn't feature the above problem.

In order to get logged on to AIM you need to declare your username and password in your Yamigo profile. If you DONT want to be connected to the external system anymore just delete your settings regarding the username and password.

Quite soon we should be able to support ICQ as well as they use the same OSCAR protocol (as AIM) behind the scene. So be prepared for the next 0.7 release.

Cheers,
Bogdan

Yamigo release 0.7 deployed

New features delivered:

Support for MSN connectivity. From now on you can receive messages and status updates from the MSN network. At least for the time being you'll need to manually enter the buddies in you phone. For example: To chat with the MSN Yamigo Support account you need to enter the following WirelessVillage address: wv:yamigosupport@hotmail.com@msn.com where yamigosupport@hotmail.com is the login name at Hotmail. Basically you need to append @msn.com to your full login name at Hotmail (eg: wv:someid@somedomain.com@msn.com).
Access Control Lists. Support for blocking/granting senders. From now on you'll be able to temporarily or permanently prohibit/allow users to send you messages. To find out more about his feature please read your phone documentation.
The "Welcome online" message will be displayed only once after the first successful login from the mobile device.
Yamigo is proud to introduce support for the eXtensible Messaging and Presence Protocol, XMPP, a standard protocol defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Unlike proprietary messaging protocols such as MSN, Yahoo or OSCAR, XMPP is open and well-supported by a large number of servers http://www.jabber.org/. Yamigo brings this way Jabber/XMPP access to wireless devices, via the operator-sponsored protocol, Wireless Village, highly optimized for mobile networks. If you don't have a Jabber account yet, you can register with many of the Jabber free servers available on the web (http://www.jabber.org/user/publicservers.php). We will be modifying the contact details page for you to be able to enter your Jabber details. Keep on tuned.

Fixes delivered in this release:

Support UTF-8 and ISO-8859-1 Now we can show correctly Scandinavian characters like: ÖÄÅöäå or French: ÈÉ or £ signs. The € sign is not supported.
Presence issues fixed related to interoperability between Motorola and Nokia phones.
SonyEricsson Z1010 workaround (to be removed later).
AIM reverse proxy login fix. Some users were reporting that they cannot login to AIM. This release fixes this.
Yahoo sessions dont timeout anymore. As a result you should be able to stay connected to Yahoo indefinitely


Known limitations/missing features for the reverse proxy function:

Yahoo support for UTF-8
Yahoo support offline messaging (send and receive)
Oscar support for UTF-8
ICQ support for Presence/status notifications
MSN suppoty for UTF-8

Bogdan

After a few good months of silence we make a new release during Christmas time.

New features or bug fixes in this release:

[*]Support for scandinavian, germanic, extended, etc. (UTF-8) character sets on MSN Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger.

[*]New "Gas Meter" service. Now you can calculate in a simple manner the fuel consumption average of your car by sending the mileage and the consume at every car refill to the Yamigo user: "wv:gas" like eg: "340 32.5" This message will be interpreted as 340 km or miles with 32.5 liters or gallions. The order doesnt count as we will assume that the highest number is the mileage. Send the message "reset" if you want the counters to be reset and average calculation restarted.

[*]Normalization of local resources. "wv:resource@yamigo.com" and "wv:resource" are refering the same resource. No more duplicates if local domain is present (eg: like it was happening for most of the SonyEricsson phones that could set the domain namespace). All previously exisiting duplicates were removed from the database.


Cheers,
Yamigo Support wishes you a Very Merry Christmas

Any suggestions on Symbian clients? Specifically one that will work on a p910 or 900?
