Where "NUMBER" is the bug number.

There are always more changes than listed here, these are just the
highlights. The full CVS log is available at www.xchat.org/cvslog/

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 2.6.8 - 16/Oct/2006
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 - Updated translations (be, de, el, es, fi, hu, it, ja, lt, pt, ru, sv, vi).
 - Removed "xchat-remote" and "dbus.so", it's now apart of the "xchat" binary.
   There is now a new dbus interface, see src/common/dbus/README for details.
   (Claessens Xavier).
 - Python: Fixed "restricted mode" errors on win32 [1512076].
 - Special-cased BRASnet for nickserv.
 - Fixed using the /MENU args -p and -e at the same time.
 - Fixed /reconnect and auto-reconnect issue [1525383].
 - Plugin API:
   * Added fields: lag, queue to the "channels" list.
   * Added fields: sizehigh to the "dcc" list.
   * Added fields: networks to the "notify" list.
   * Handle gracefully plugins that try to execute commands with invalid UTF-8.
   * Added /GETFILE command, to open a file dialog.
   * Command hooks that start with a period ('.') will now be hidden from /HELP
     and /HELP -l.
 - Fixed: [1544960] quitting via tabs behaves bad on bncs.
 - Fixed: [1551620] --version flag needs display.
 - Fixed: [1539236] problem with the /url command (irc:// handling).
 - Fixed: [1568931] treeview problem: closing tabs by holding shift and
   clicking.
 - "Clear" button in Ban List window now has a 'Are you sure?' dialog for
   safety.
 - The notify list can now contain entries specific to only one or more IRC
   networks.
 - Userlist popup menu and buttons: added %e for 'current network name'.
 - Added option: 'Flash taskbar on any private messages'.
 - Added a new encoding choice: "IRC (Latin-1/UTF-8 hybrid)".
   How it works is described at: http://forum.xchat.org/viewtopic.php?t=3180
 - Added /LastLog -r <regexp>.
 - The DCC windows have been remodeled and are much nicer now. Ported to
   GtkTreeView, the buttons are context sensitive, the window remembers its
   size and uploads and downloads are combined in one window.
 - Perl (Lian Wan Situ)
  * Changed Xchat::print and Xchat::command to return false if they are called
    with either no arguments or undef
  * Changed Xchat::user_info so that it works even if the nick parameter
    contains color codes

As long as the new 2.6.8 rpms (xchat, perl, python, tcl) will be posted on the mandriva link site I will be happy. :)

I like best the new option "Flash taskbar on any private messages". Btw... are there any chances of a good and simple plugin for systray integration? The one on blight.tk seems to be full of bugs, and to be honest, who starts its browser or mail client by right clicking the XChat icon in the tray?

Since it's not in development anymore (? no releases in ages, web page down), I'm thinking of writing a new systray (unix only) plugin. *shrug* Can't say much more than that, just thinking about it.

Why a plugin?

Would it just not be better to have system tray integration inbuilt as per every other IRC client? It makes sense to me considering every one minimises their client frequently.

I think either of them would be cool, built-in support or plugin, as long as it's simple and works.
