      Release Notes: This release is the result of several months of testing, debugging, and improving. It includes Perl scripting support, drag and drop toolbar editing, better Unicode support (adaptive decoding engines and very flexible charset settings), an "Instant-Messenger-like" notifier window, a status bar with applets, micryption support, DCC bandwidth limits, and several scripting engine enhancements including translation capabilities and dcop communication calls.

        Release Notes: This release fixes some minor bugs, enforces the security, and updates the online documentation. There are also some small new features like the export function for the events or the echoprivmsg command.

        •  31 May 2004 20:42

          Release Notes: Since the 2.* releases, the source code has been almost completely rewritten. The major differences are the multiserver support, full IPv6 support, SSL support (also over IPv6), Unicode support for the user interface, a better scripting language, and a basic theme engine.

          •  06 Jan 2003 18:00

            Release Notes: 90% of the 2.* branch features have been already re-implemented and there are many new things to play with. There is a work-in-progress UNICODE port: the UI starts to "speak" foreign (non Latin1) based languages. Window based IRC character set mapping has been implemented (with 8 commonly used codepages for now). Some modules have been removed from the main distribution: they will be released as separate packages. The scriptcenter dialog has been split into smaller pieces and a GUI toolbar editor has been added. There are tons of bugfixes and improvements.

            Awesome IRC
            This is the best IRC I've used. Works well on windoze as on linux. Someday when I update my webpages....This will be a must add.

            Great App
            The program is very easy to use and im very impressed with the configure script.
            I was wondering how do you make the background transparent?

            Script for BrasIRC (Brazilian IRC Network)
            I want to anunciate that I am developing a Kvirc 2.1.1 script for the BrasIRC network (Brazilian IRC network) with a lot of nice features like:
            Nickserv AutoIdentification without limit of nicknames
            Auto Join without limit of channels
            Away system
            Easy access to many kvirc and Services (Nickserv, Chanserv, Memoserv) functions.
            This script is designed for the BRASIRC network, some features will not work (for now) in other networks.
