Yes, there is a way to get the latest plugins from SVN. The auto-updater will do this for you as well, but here's the method in case you want to do it yourself.
First, get subversion. If you don't already have this... perhaps you should go to the Installing SVN page and figure that out first.
I'm going to put this here just in case you forgot. To update any of these manually, go into the directory, and enter
Here's the list of plugins, and the commands to get them:
svn co https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn-extras/plugins/<option> <option>
Where <option> is one of the following plugins:
actionsmenu address_book advancedconfigviewer amsnplus bugbuddy camserv chameleon changeit ColoredNicks colorize countdown dbusviewer desktop_integration devel DualDisplayPicture emotes emoticons_importer FPSstats games gename glogs gnotify growl inkdraw Invisibility keepalive LilyPondIM movewin MSNGameTTT music Notes notify Nudge organize_received pop3 PowerTool remind Restore sayit SearchContact SendRecents SkinColor SpellCheck TeXIM transparent userstatus WebcamShooter whatis winks
You'll have to move (or copy) the newly created folder to your $HOME/.amsn/plugins/ directory, then restart aMSN.
And as a super special bonus, here's the svn list of skins:
svn co https://amsn.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/amsn/trunk/amsn-extras/skins/<option> <option>
Where <option> is one of the following skins:
aDarwin aDarwin V.5 (Brushed) Alloque_Lavender Alternative-Tux aMac aqua aWidget Bolos BSDmsn crystola cubic Default-src Fluox Grey-MSN Lila MSN MSN4 MSN7 Rubber Sapphire-2.0 SpherIco Stylistic TheNoNameBrand97 Tux Ubuntu (Human) wolfheart
And you'll have to move or copy these folders to the $HOME/.amsn/skins/ folder, then restart aMSN.
Hi, my name is CRAZY
If you're crazy, and want EVERY PLUGIN AND SKIN (someone, oh someone, think of the bandwidth), you can do it. Don't blame us if SourceForge hates you though.
