XChat for Windows 2.8.1 is released

Discussion about the official XChat for Windows.

XChat for Windows 2.

Postby peterz » 12 Jan 2007 09:04

News for 2.8.1 (12/Jan/2007):
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* Added a system tray icon (aka Notification Area). This is probably the
biggest feature addition in this series. Also added a /TRAY command so
scripts can manipulate the icon.
Note: If you prefer to use the X-Tray plugin, you can still do so. Just
disable XChat's tray icon in Settings > Preferences > Alerts.
* Settings: Warn the user when trying to put the tree on the top/bottom.
* Channel modes are no longer shown in the titlebar if they contain a key.
* Added /GUI APPLY command, which does that same as pressing OK in the
settings window (e.g use it after /set). Mainly for scripters.
* Allow changing the logging folder if the log filename is set to a full path
in the settings window (e.g. starts with "C:").
* Added 'Your Action' text event.
* Separated out /away and /back commands so it's obvious what they'll do.
* Settings are now saved even if you shut-down Windows before closing XChat.
* Fixed the "Save As" function saving to the wrong folder in the URL Grabber.
* Changes to /MENU command (See plugin20.html for details):
- Now works for popup menus too.
- Allows creation of radio menu items.
- -p arg can now to be negative to give a position offset from right/bottom.
- -i arg to specify an icon file.
* Plugin API:
- Added "event_text" to xchat_get_info().
- Added "modes" to xchat_get_info(). Returns the current channel modes, if
they are known.

Hi!

Great work! i just miss one thing ;)

If you use the Trayicon, it should be possible to remove xchat from the taskbar (minimize to tray).

That would be Grrrrrreat!

Thanks, that is great. So it would be even more easy to get the same reaction if i click the minimize button, right?

Yeah, I was kind of disappointed to see it remain in taskbar as well when minimized.

Well, there is this secret feature:

1) /set gui_tray_flags 1
2) Click the Window's close button. It won't actually close, just hide to tray.

The xtray plugin lets me easily set myself back/away. This feature is still not included on xchat i think its very important feature.

Yes, the away/back feature would be great to have integrated into the tray icon. I definitely support that.

I'm stoned. How simple it was. I was looking for updates or patches to fix that. Thanks peterz!
