History of Butterfly Messenger (Not Official one):

(Totally not really accurate, just thinking if really was this history)

The day Messenger Reviver 2 was released, ok… but, if you see, was supposed to end Messenger Reviver 2 and 1 in 2014 due to Microsoft says that will shut down the server in 2014, but, for some reason, Microsoft doesn’t closedowns the server, and maybe @TReKiE wants to make a Open-source (Unofficial) version of MSN 2012 (March one), but, before, he searches/scripts until he finds/makes (MSNPSharp). So, Butterfly Messenger was not only to “revive” MSN Messenger but to demonstrates him. And since is open-source, you can completely transform it into MSN 2012, 2009 and 2011

The “official” announced shut down of the original servers was April 8th, 2013, but there was no enforcement of this until April 23rd, which is also the same day Reviver 2 came out. Although the servers were still up for Reviver to use for many years, parts of the system started to deteriorate after a number of months, and where possible, I was able to keep it working by creative means.

But in March 2015, the servers dropped support for all protocol versions prior to WLM 2012 (MSNP21) completely. This not only meant that people using versions of Windows before Vista couldn’t use Messenger anymore, but also other platforms and third-party clients were also affected, as none of them had been upgraded to the final Messenger protocol version.

Thankfully, the MSNPSharp library had been updated to MSNP21 and just needed some enhancements and fixes for the client to work properly again. So Butterfly Messenger exists because there was a need for another non-Skype Messenger client option in 2015, which could work on XP, MacOS and Linux.

Plus, I also liked the idea that all the work that had gone into MSNPSharp wasn’t lost and was being made use of again. It also ended up powering an old Messenger bot that was running until 2017 too.

With that novel written, other than as a fun little project, I’m not really sure there’s a need for Butterfly at the moment. Other than some minor niche exceptions, you’re better off with the original Messenger anyway :slight_smile:.
