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

This plugin shows a notification when someone in your contact list changes his client.
It requires Popup or YAPP plugin.

"Ignore these clients" setting is a list of substrings separated by semicolons; if ClientChangeNotify finds one of these substrings in a new client name, it doesn't show the notification.
Also it's possible to use regular expressions, but it requires pcre.dll or pcre3.dll in your miranda directory.
PCRE is available from http://www.pcre.org/ (Binaries for Windows are here: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/downlinks/pcre-bin-zip.php )
When PCRE library is installed successfully, ClientChangeNotify will show "you can use regular expressions here" under the "Ignore these clients" field in the options.

Regular expressions are detected by '/' symbol at the start of the substring. The same symbol must be at the end of the substring, possibly followed by pattern modifier characters. I.e. "gmail;/[0-9A-F]{8}(\W|$)/i;skype" has two usual substrings and one regexp substring with an "i" modifier (caseless).

There are several solutions to filter jgmail client changes:
1) Disable notification about client version changes
(Miranda options -> Popups -> ClientChangeNotify -> "Notify also when just client version changes" checkbox, turn it off).
This solution is somewhat easier, but ClientChangeNotify won't notify you of any client version changes.
2) Disable client change notifications for separate contacts
3) Install PCRE library (see the download link above), and make sure that substring "/[0-9A-F]{8}(\W|$)/" is present in the "Ignore these clients" field of the ClientChangeNotify options. If the substring is not there, add it.
This solution is the most correct.

ClientChangeNotify 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/ClientChangeNotify/Notify (BYTE) =
 0 - completely disable notifications for this contact
 1 - show notifications always, except when ClientChangeNotify popups are turned off
 2 - show notifications always, even when ClientChangeNotify popups are turned off
 3 (default) - use global settings (the plugin will examine the following two checkboxes before deciding whether to show the notification: "Notify also when just client version changes" and "Don't notify for contacts with disabled status notification")
