#8508 closed defect (fixed)

International UTF-8 display name can set at about 30-40 chars less than Windows Live client

Reported by: chalet16 Owned by: khc
Milestone: 2.7.8 Component: MSN
Version: 2.5.2 Keywords:


On my Windows Live client I can set my display name at 130 characters but when I use Pidgin I can set my display name to only about 30-40 characters for international languages. I try to use Wireshark to sniff communication and I found that Pidgin use url encoding with my display name but Windows Live Messenger send UTF-8 without url encoding

I have already show this problems in aMSN forums . It is in both aMSN and Pidgin.

PS.Sorry for my bad english. Thanks

(In 9116aec2b9157c0500ab9560d849627e1f9ea2e6):
Stop escaping all characters in the display name. It's only necessary to escape percent and space, and the UTF-8 can be left alone.

Fixes #8508.
