Ingame instant messaging with buddies

During beta2:
First prototype of instant messaging with buddies. From anywhere in ManiaPlanet, you can open your buddies list from the toolbar at the top of the screen and chat with your buddies.

Before release
* Nice way to use this when playing (using it with the ALT key is a bit cumbersome at the moment)
* Better UI
* More features: join buddies on server, ability to send notifications from 3rd party apps (eg. send a match invitation during a tournament).
Please do not PM for support. Instead, create a thread so that everyone can contribute or benefit from the answer! 8-)

- Add impostors for title pack, that will be automaticly downloaded to display a title loaded in a station even if the pack file is not present on the computer
- Clouding of the title packs to be able to play to any maniaplanet title anywhere you are connected to ManiaPlanet
- Add support of two new Nadeo titles on masterserver : ShootMania Storm Royal and ShootMania Storm Royal (experimental)
- Add dependencies between titles : browse/find on Nadeo titles (ShootMania or TrackMania²) returns all servers on titles based on them.
For example browse servers in ShootMania Storm returns all servers on Royal, Elite, Joust, Heroes and all user's titles based on ShootMania Storm.
User's titles need to be updated to register the dependencies.
- Add waiting-queue support for connection to masterserver
- Improvement of the frequency of notifications. Correction of some bugs that could remove some notifications
- Fix the sending of the number of medals gained on a user title
- Fix the parsing of urls that contain a parameter with the character '/'
- Fix a bug that send the results of a ladder match to the masterserver if this match is not opened
- Fix a bug that try to download ladder scores (solo or multi) if there is no scores available on a user title

Lobby Server

Lobby servers are design to allow gamers to find more easily matches against people of the same rank.

Join now our Joust Lobby : maniaplanet://#join=nadeo300@SMStormJoust@nadeolabs

Players join the lobby, and they are automatically switched to the match server when a match is found.
