XChat is a popular Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client. It has a choice of a tabbed document interface or tree interface, support for multiple servers and is highly configurable.
XChat is a full-featured IRC client and includes all basic functionalities that are found in most other IRC clients, including CTCP, DCC file transfers and chats.
It supports a plugin system for various languages (including C, C++, Perl, Python, Tcl, Ruby, Lua, CLISP, D, and DMDScript). By writing plugins, the features and functionality of XChat can be extended and customized.
- Added proper support for unicode time stamps and log filenames so that non-English ones work correctly (e.g. Non-ASCII days of the week now work, such as Cyrillic).
- Fixed a few text printing bugs when running in Spanish. Please report if there are still some remaining problems.
- Handle gracefully plugins that try to execute commands with invalid UTF-8.
- Improved handling of irc:// links from web browser, as not to make another connection unless absolutely necessary.
