August 31st, 2006--The latest Xfire release brings live updates to nicknames, a whole slew of bug fixes, and many new games.
Installation, adding friends, skin changes, chat, launching of external URLs, game launching, game detection.
What does not
Though the skin was changed successfully a couple of times, it does not seem to handle multiple changes well. Theme changing seems to crash the app. When at least counter-strike:source is running alongside xfire, the game crashes on launch. Font used in main window for user and server names is still unreadable, the 5-minute research I did showed no signs as to what the direct cause of this is, nor did it show anyone with a fix. My guess (hunch) is that this is a unicode issue with wine. Once the main window is launched, it won't minimize to tray.
