DENG is back!

The DENG Modular XML Browser project finally has a new home. Over the last two years, i switched hostings twice (don’t ask), and DENG was scattered all over the internets, and many things got lost.

I finally sat down to clean up the mess and everything is in one place again. The project homepage features a small news section, the feature matrix, examples (i’ll add more every now and then, so be sure to check back), downloads (includes examples on how to integrate DENG into your Flash projects and HTML pages as well as the source code of course) and support (you can support us by donating via PayPal now, and we can support you via our forum and mailinglist, and we offer individual support too).

Nothing terribly new there, but i thought i let you know.

I’m working on DENG 2.0 (Actionscript 3 implementation) whenever i find some free time, so stay tuned. May take a while yet though until i have something halfway meaningful to show.

MSN, Yahoo!, ICQ and IRC in Flash 8 –

An old friend of mine from Argentina contacted me recently and showed off his work. I was impressed. integrates all your messenger accounts (MSN, Yahoo!, ICQ, IRC) into one slick Flash 8 interface. And it’s all free.

As far as i understood, communication is done via XMLSockets to a Jabber server that is used as a gateway to other messaging servers/protocols.

Good job, Francisco!
