HexChat 2.9.6 released
After a bit of delay 2.9.6 is finally released.
A lot of work has gone into supporting nearly all of ircv3 What does that mean to the user? Well some of it you won’t notice just know its working more efficiently behind the scenes but a few features of it are notable:
- Expanded SASL support to include BLOWFISH and AES encryption and EXTERNAL for using client certs.
- Added server-time support so bouncers like ZNC can print their playback and show native timestamps.
The server list has been redesigned to show all of our new authentication methods such as QuakeNet’s more secureChallangeAuth and now you can specify multiple commands to be ran on connect easily. With this change you will also lose your old favorites though.
