    A new version is up for grabs. 20040522
    • Javadoc of the entire project on
    • Applet support. (KatterBoxApplet)
    • Command line logger. (KatterSpy)
    • Fixed a bug with ignore.
    • Fixed a flicker issue when not scrolled to the bottom of a chat panel.
    • Better logging facilities.
    • Internal scratchpad viewer. I'll add an editor with the gods blessings.
    • Threads sleep when needed vs lowering priority.

    Well i tried it, and it works. However it does not add anything new to the vast array of chatterbox clients already available.
    Do you have a specific audience or goal in mind?
      I hope to expand it also to a node browser as well. My immediate goals are to finish the CB portion and "move on". Also to take it where demands take it. :)

      Also, I hope to have written the better mouse trap. I couldn't stand the other CB interfaces.. so here we are :)
