Beup Beup is homebrew app that runs an MSN-like instant messaging application for the DS. According to kevinc, the program's developer, the earlier release doesn't have many functions but it can theoretically connect and chat. The program uses GBFS and requires the wifi config is taken from the firmware. Since then he's been working on this newest version which includes the following changelog:
* Added support for sending / receiving user display pictures through MSNSLP * Added support for sending / receiving INK gifs (not sure if works with official client, it does work with aMSN, kopete and others) * Can handle now 302 Transfer in SSL auth (I think, if it doesn't, contact me) * Added keyboard pressed key mask thingy a lot of people asked. * Updated to devkitpro19 * Fixed bugs where some transaction ids were expected to be 1 char long * Changed principal interface * Can change now avatar / display name * Fixed bug where would crash if disconnected while chatting * Fixed bug where MSN would still consider you online / in some session even after closing (in my PC works fine, probably an error of socket closing of the lib) * Fixed some stuff where a principal would create new tabs continuously because beup didn't recognize that it had left the one before * Tabs now appear only after partner sends a message (so sessions used only for avatar exchange don't clutter the tab container) * Added some sounds * Tabs now use principal names instead of account * Fixed chat tabs in general * Changed button look * Simplified principal synchronization (hope it crashes less now) * Implemented composite glyphs for dstype (now can display accents / tildes / stuff) * More other stuff that I can't remember.
It still has bugs and you should out for these:
* DHCP sometimes still fails * SSL sometimes still fails * WEP seems to crash regularly * Needs an interface to update network config on beup itself * Still uses small keyboard

SylphIRC If you've been wondering why there hasn't been updates to the awesome IRC Client for the DS, well, developer Ficedula didn't fall off the face of the planet, he just took some time off to attend to perhaps some non-DS related matters
