Version 1.2 of Circe, the Client for IRC in Emacs, has been released.
Read more about Circe on its homepage: https://github.com/jorgenschaefer/circe/wiki
Circe is available from Marmalade.
- Channel name shortening has been improved a lot, resulting in #emacs and #emacs-circe being shortened to #e and #e-c respectively.
- /WL (who left) will now show the nicks in a single line, making the output a lot more readable.
- New CTCP queries supported: SOURCE and CLIENTINFO.
- New command: /CLEAR. This will delete all text in a chat buffer.
- Lurker handling has been improved a lot and should get confused less often now.
- Query buffers now are renamed to reflect the queried user’s nick when that users is seen to change their nick.
- Non-blocking connects are disabled by default in win32, as that doesn’t work there and caused errors.
- Added a new circe-message-handler-table which can be used instead of circe-receive-message-functions.
- Display handling was rewritten, and circe-display-handler now allows for lists in addition to functions, replacing the old circe-format-strings special case.
- The way Circe displays messages has been changed. The new list circe-message-option-functions is used to collect options. See the docstring for more information.
- Recent channel user handling has been reworked to be more consistent. In the process, circe-parted-users-timeout was renamed to circe-channel-recent-users-timeout.
- Duration strings won’t be empty anymore.
- The active channels are now shown in different places in the mode line to make more sense.
- circe-fool-face is now not bold anymore to avoid unwanted attention when combined with other faces.
- And a number of bugfixes.
- XEmacs is not supported anymore. Sorry. No one here uses it, so the code didn’t work anyhow.
