The Icon Bar: News and features: Grapevine 2 Released

Grapevine 2 Released

Posted by Andrew Duffell on 16:07, 12/5/2004 |
R-Comp have announced the immediate availability of Grapevine 2, the latest update to their popular "conversation/communication software".
Grapevine 2 has been in full time development for over six months, expanding and extending the software throughout. The single biggest new feature is support for ICQ communication, in much the same way as the existing MSN mode.

Features summary:

  • File transfers in MSN and IRC have been totally revamped with drag and drop facilities and progress bars
  • ICQ communication has been added
  • The multi-user facilities (for different family members) have been extended
  • Auto-joining of IRC channels
  • Better handling of multiple IRC servers
  • Contact management windows have been improved
  • Variable size emoticons
Grapevine 2 costs 29ukp inclusive of VAT and UK delivery. Overseas may have to cover a small amount of extra P&P. Existing customers have already been emailed details on upgrading from GV1. If you haven't received information, and believe you should have done, then please contact R-Comp by email or phone.

Haven't checked my personal email yet since work are evil and have "banned" webamil, but £15 will put me off upgrading, at least for a long while. I don't particularly want/need ICQ but I wouldn't mind some of the other tweaks. Bah :|
