| mICQ is a portable, small, yet powerful console based ICQ client. |
| It supports password changing, auto-away, creation of new         |
| accounts, and other features that makes it a very complete yet    |
| simple client supporting the current ICQ v8 protocol.             |
|                                                                   |
| A lot of other ICQ clients are based in spirit on mICQ,           |
| nevertheless mICQ is still _the_ console based ICQ client.        |

After weeks of hard work developing mICQ, the new stable version
0.4.9 is finally out. It's functionality has been completely ported
to the new v8 protocol, including support for the v8 peer-to-peer
protocol. The setup of new accounts has been made easier, among other
interface cleanups. The configuration file has been reorganized and
now lives in ~/.micq/micqrc. Some v8 specific features were added,
including sending SMS. mICQ has been translated to several languages,
German, French and Russian beeing the most up to date translations.
Character conversion for Russion and Japanese is also included. mICQ
recognizes other ICQ clones including licq, StrICQ, Miranda, mICQ and
generically the version numbers of all clones following the generic
identification method. It also supports the use of SOCKS5 in case
you're firewalled. You may configure it to execute arbitrary commands
on incoming messages or online/offline events. mICQ is portable, as
it doesn't require any external library, so it should run on Linux,
BSD, AmigaOS, Win32, BeOS, Solaris and other commercial Unices.

Binaries (i386 .deb and .rpm) are included; the debianization and the
rpm spec file are included in the .tgz. So distributions may update
their packages easily (RedHat 7.3 is at mICQ 0.4.6pl1...).

Have fun,
   Rüdiger (current mICQ maintainer).
