Clients/Quiet Internet Pager

From NINA Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Quiet Internet Pager (QIP) is a multiprotocol (since Infium and QIP 2010, QIP 2005 was OSCAR-only) instant messaging application that was popular in Russia and many ex-USSR countries. In 2000s it had been competing with AOL's ICQ in these areas, leading to dozens of application builds releasing in short periods of time.

We got every known public build of QIP 2005 and QIP Infium, and now we look for missing ones of QIP 2010 and QIP 2012, as well as alpha builds of QIP 2005 (QIP 2005a). If you have ones, please email contribute@wiki.nina.chat, include build number and its release date when possible. The build number is located in the installer's title page, its file properties (application executable has it too). For release date, refer to qip.exe creation date.

Differences between progress tables

Progress and compatibility information for QIP 2005 will be probably kept in sync with Clients/AOL_Instant_Messenger and reflect progress only to OSCAR/ICQ compatibility. Since QIP Infium, 2010 and 2012 are multiprotocol clients, we keep in mind that most of their plugins are outdated, no longer represent the current state of social network messaging API like VK or even shut down (Facebook, Google Talk). For these versions we will focus on QIP-specific functions provided by QIP.RU if you haven't been running it in 'isolated mode' before January 2019 when QIP services were shut down.
