What works

Enough to get you going. Chatting to friends, sending files, checking game server status, most of the core stuff is there. With Gecko it all renders fine, if you stop letting your window manager touch Xfire with winecfg, the windows will appear like they do normally too (ie without the manager border around).

Game detection AND in-game chat work!! They work decently too! What a surprise! The only game I have tested it with was Sauerbraten though (works perfectly under Wine, just as well as native Linux version). Slight formatting problems on screen when using in-game chat, but totally awesome stuff!

What does not

Seeing list of users on the main screen (or list of servers, files, whatever) but tooltip allows you to see who is on your list anyway.

You cannot minimize the main window, it just floats around the bottom in a small square instead. It also stays on top of everything unless you minimize it (although in its 'fake' minimized state its small enough to stay out of the way).

Keyboard focus appears to stay in the main conversation window, but it still types into the chat box. Text you are typing appears black, once you send the message it appears white and is perfectly readable.

Runs a little slow, menus are laggy etc.


What was not tested

Nothing really, except auto-patching and voice chat.
