Versions 3.6 introduces BlogChat. Just as you have a comments section for each topic on your blog, BlogChat gives you a dedicated chat room for each of your blog entries. To learn more about BlogChat, visit this page:http://www.fastcatsoftware.com/chat/userguide/chatbox.asp
The video chat now supports Flash player 11's h264 streaming capability. This represents a significant enhancement, in terms of video resolution and bandwidth usage. There are now 2 different layouts available for the chat window: Chatcenter and MsgCenter. The new MsgCenter layout is for those of you wish to use the Instant Messanger feature exclusively.
We have a new widget made specifically for WordPress Blogs. Check it out here: http://wordpress.org/plugins/blogchat-chat-system/
Upgrading to version 3.5.x.x will automatically switch your chat to the new chat server (v2.3). This process takes 1-2 min. During this time, your chat will not function properly. Keep trying to reconnect for a few minutes until the transfer is complete.
After upgrading, make sure you clear your browser cache and refresh the page.
Upgrading from a version prior to 188.8.131.52: If you have changed the default location of the full page chat, you will need to copy the new fcchat/html/chat/index.php file to this location, and set $FCCHAT_BASE_URL once again.
When you upgrade to a new version, any customizations you made to the chat files will be erased. In order to save those changes, do the following:
