XBL Status allows you to view your Xbox Live friends list.

The program was created from ideas in this thread:

Dependencies: python-beautifulsoup, python-clientform, python-glade2, python-gtk2, python-notify, python-dbus

The latest version is 0.4.1 and is available from the downloads section below. This version fixes login issues seen by 32-bit users of versions 0.4 and below.

To use Mumbles (, install the xblstatus plugin (located in the downloads section) and select DBus as the notification type in the XBL Status Preferences window. The plugin will need to be copied to "~/.mumbles/plugins/" and can be verified by running "mumbles -v".
