      Release Notes: Since the functionality of AOL's TOC server seems to have mysteriously disappeared, this release introduces a brand-new plugin for the OSCAR protocol. Additionally, the IRC plugin can now initiate DCC sessions (as opposed to just connect to them), and there are bugfixes for Tru64 and NetBSD.

        Release Notes: There is a new /toggle command, which toggles the visibility of your list. In addition to this, there are some bugfixes. GNU make is no longer required to build; it now works fine with BSD and SysV make as well.

          Release Notes: Some minor UI changes: the height of the input field is now 1 row tall, and scrollable. There is a new "status bar" with a clock and the name of the current buffer. It will also notify you of any unread message buffers, in case your buddy list is longer than the height of the terminal. There are some bugfixes, mostly related to Solaris.
