Feel free to send a patch if you find out what's causing it. It's hard
to tell without an MSVC compiler and the obscure messages it
generates.

Sure.

It seems that Kev's build also failed last night, so it's probably
more than just MSVC.

account defaults don't work for google talk

Shouldn't we either alter the defaults or otherwise detect Gtalk?
It's gonna be a big group of users.

I'm talking about a new account setup I just tried and I receive a server error.

'authentication error: no appropriate mechanism available for given
security settings'

Re: account defaults don't work for google talk

Guess I should mention that the only thing that must be changed is
enabling plaintext.  Can't this be negotiated?

Maybe we could display sth like "this server requires plain text, do you
want to enable it?"

I believe i recently added to that error message '(this may mean you
need to enable plaintext authentication)', so that should at least
help.

> Can't this be negotiated?

Regarding plaintext authentication, there are a couple of things we
could do to make it work:
 - Make the 'Allow plaintext auth' a combobox with the following
options: Never, Always, Over an encrypted connection, and make 'over
an encrypted connection' the default. I'm not sure if this is 'secure'
enough as a default.
- Add a warning 'your server only supports plaintext authentication,
do you want to enable this?' with the optional 'don't ask me again for
this account' checkbox. We could add to the message whether or not the
connection is entrypted. This is probably the right thing to do.
However, this is harder to code :-)

Regarding making Jabber connect to Google by default, we could also
implement GOOGLE-TOKEN, as it is documented on their webpage i
believe. This may even be the easiest thing to code, provided that Qt
allows us to do https (which they should provide in the next Qt
release i believe).

cheers,
Remko

Doesn't this work by using cookies which are set when you log it to one
of Google services?

No. They store the token in cookies as well though, which is why you
can get them from there.

The protocol is documented here:
http://code.google.com/apis/accounts/AuthForInstalledApps.html

It basically boils down to a few HTTPS requests as far as i know.
