The IM Project Page Has Vanished

Wednesday April 21st, 1999

The IM Project page has been taken down at the request of Netscape. Netscape was the contributor of the Instant Messaging API document, and they have taken it down pending further review. As far as we can tell, there is nothing more to the story at this point. We'll let you know when the page comes back online.

Netscape decided to contribute a document describing an API. Then they decided that they didn't want to make it public yet. They didn't seize any code. They didn't kill an active project. This isn't the _event_ most of you seem to be making of it.
