XStatus Notify

XStatusNotify plugin for Miranda IM.
(c) Dmitry Chervov aka Deathdemon.

This plugin shows a notification when someone in your contact list changes his ICQ/Jabber custom status message. Note that it performs different functions than StatusNotify plugin does.

To work properly, XStatusNotify requires Popup or YAPP plugin and Miranda 0.7.
Though, XStatusNotify should work partially starting from Miranda, its proper operation with Miranda older than 0.7 isn't guaranteed.
The most probable issue with old Miranda builds is a garbled xstatus text in history and message log, or no text at all, despite it was enabled in the options. This is not a bug; just make sure that you have the newest Miranda and history/messaging plugins (TabSRMM/Scriver/SRMM, History++, possibly IEView, etc.).

If you can't / don't want to update your Miranda, you can use an older XStatusNotify build (v0.1.1.0) that uses old API and therefore will work with older Miranda builds:
http://dmitry.ch/projects/archive/XStatusNotifyW_build40.zip (Unicode; Windows XP/2000/NT)
http://dmitry.ch/projects/archive/XStatusNotify_build40.zip (ANSI; Windows 95/98/ME)

To notify of jabber moods, XStatusNotify requires Jabber plugin v0.7.0.14 or newer.

The plugin supports per-contact notification setting. There are two ways to use it: either by using ContactSettings plugin that adds a GUI to easily modify this setting, or by modifying the database directly:
Contact/XStatusNotify/Notify (BYTE) =
 0 - completely disable notifications for this contact
 1 - show notifications always except when XStatus notifications are disabled globally
 2 - show notifications always, even when XStatus notifications are disabled globally
 3 (default) - use global filtering settings
