The Bahamut IRCD is based on the EFNet Hybrid IRCD and has many additional features primarily designed for the DALnet IRC network. Its features include very high performance, compatibility with Solaris, BSD and Linux and a high level of stability under very high load, as well as many improvements over the original EFNet code. Bahamut is not compatible with Dreamforge as of version 1.2.0.
BitchX is the premiere IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client. It originally was a modified version of the popular ircII client, and the features were eventually merged into the EPIC IRC client. The current development is aimed at merging the client back to a current branch of EPIC and bringing compatibility and stability back to the client, while bringing the features that are BitchX into a new client.
centericq is a text mode menu- and window-driven IM interface that supports the ICQ2000, Yahoo!, AIM, IRC, MSN, Gadu-Gadu, and Jabber protocols. It allows you to send, receive, and forward messages, URLs, SMSes (both through the ICQ server and email gateways supported by Mirabilis), contacts, and email express messages, and it has many other useful features. An internal RSS reader and a LiveJournal client are also provided.
dircproxy is an IRC proxy server ("bouncer") designed for people who use IRC from lots of different workstations or clients, but wish to remain connected and see what they missed while they were away. You connect to IRC through dircproxy, and it keeps you connected to the server, even after you detach your client from it. While you're detached, it logs channel and private messages as well as important events, and when you reattach it'll download those logs to you using ordinary IRC protocol.
The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one Internet application suite. It contains an Internet browser, email and newsgroup client with an included Web feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat, and Web development tools, and is sure to appeal to advanced users, Web developers, and corporate users. It uses much of the Mozilla source code powering such successful siblings as Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, Sunbird, and Miro.
pxys is an efficient open proxy scanner software suite for Undernet IRC(u). It scans the clients' IPs to check for misconfigured WinGate, Cisco, SOCKS 4, SOCKS 5, some IRC bouncers, and other vulnerable HTTP proxies. Using the peak library for socket and asynchronous events handling, it is dedicated to run on huge IRCU networks, and is currently running on Undernet to avoid the overwhelming abuse of these proxy servers being exploited daily.
TR-IRCD is an ircd and a collection of services programs for IRC networks. The ircd is heavily influenced by ircd-hybrid and Bahamut. It includes support for IRC extensions such as md5-encrypted hostnames, modules, threads, different protocols, channel modes, and languages. It supports IPv6 and Web-based configuration, and includes a proxy scanner.
