XChat 2.8.1a and b r

News for 2.8.1a (27/Jan/2007):
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* Maximized window state is now remembered when you hide/restore from the tray.
* Fixed opening URLs like "dot.com" that previously failed to be opened by Windows because they didn't start with www or http://.
* iconv.dll is no longer needed (751 KB of disk and memory saved!). This was quite a big job under the hood, please report any problems with character sets.
* Fixed a bug in the /exec plugin that could cause text printed to stdout by ActivePerl to be sent to the channel, under certain conditions.
* Fixed small bug: #100239 buffer overflow in setup dialog.

News for 2.8.1b (30/Jan/2007):
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
* Fixed two small crash bugs, one associated with creating unicode log filenames, and the other with opening URLs in your browser.
* Fixed use of GB18030 and ISO-2022-JP character sets (which was a new bug in 2.8.1a only).

When explorer.exe does its usual trick of crashing the xchat tray icon literally disappears even after restarting explorer.exe; to get it back XChat has to be closed (by whatever means) and re-loaded.

NB: Only for information as I doubt there is a workaround for any explorer.exe screw ups.
