XChat 2.8.4 released

Postby peterz » 01 Jul 2007 04:33

Code: Select all
 2.8.4 - 01/Jul/2007
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 - Updated translations (cs, de, ko, mk, sv, vi).
 - System-Tray balloons now get the xchat icon instead of a generic one.
 - Fixed the notify-send zombies (released as xc282-fixtrayzombies.diff).
 - Fixed underscore ('_') in real names in the nick-name right-click menu being
   drawn as a underline.
 - ut2004:// URLs are now underlined too.
 - /set gui_tray_flags 4 will now enable a "Minimize to tray" feature. Clicking
   the window minimize button will minimize to tray instead of the task-bar.
 - Fixed bug: [1680762] Notify fails if network name contains spaces.
 - Extended tclConfig.sh search paths so it hopefully works on Ubuntu now.
 - Added a feature that reloads conversations from last time you used XChat
   (type /set text_replay 0 to disable it).
 - Fixed /LASTLOG printing everything twice if you had Indented Nicks off.
 - The CTRL-F keybinding (Find) is now disabled when using Emacs keys.
 - Added /SET gui_tweaks. See http://forum.xchat.org/viewtopic.php?p=13766
 - Fixed opening URLs on KDE that didn't begin with http:// or other protocol.
 - A better quit dialog which warns you if you're connected to IRC or have
   active file transfers.
 - Fixed: [1741525] Cycle selected channel (Luca Falavigna).
 - Fixed: [1737249] Doesn't recognize nicks with halfop mode on hovering.
 - The userlist and treeview can now be placed on the same side, with a resize
   handle in between them. They can also be dragged and dropped into place.
 - When you hide the userlist using the View menu, the resize handle now
   disappears too. It also disappears when you have a server tab in focus.
 - If you have a tree on one side and userlist on the other, they'll both now
   have a resize handle, previously the tree's size was fixed.
 - The userlist can be hidden and shown with CTRL+F7.
 - [1735116] Channel List's minimum users spin-button can now be set downward
   even on networks that sent a list of channels of only a larger size. In this
   case the Download button will flash to indicate you need to download a new
   list.
 - Changing the channel switcher type (Tree or Tabs) is also possible in the
   setup dialog.
 - The Ban List window now lists exceptions too (mode +e).
 - Script and Plugin related changes:
  * /SETTEXT with no argument now clears the input box.
  * Python: Added a xchat.strip method for stripping IRC attributes and mIRC
    color codes.
  * C-API and Perl: Returning 0 from a FD hook will now remove the hook and
    free all associated memory.
  * /MENU now supports a $CHAN root aswell (see plugin20.html).
  * Fixed GDK warning when using /MENU to add a key binding to a popup menu.

Here's a little trick to make the Pane handles smaller. Place this inside your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file:
Code: Select all
style "mypanestyle" { GtkPaned::handle-size = 3 }
widget "*" style "mypanestyle"

Well, in GNOME 2.18.2, it minimizes xchat when I just switch workspaces. I have "Show windows from all workspaces" and "Restore to native workspace" selected in "Window List Preferences", if it matters.

When I try installing by source, I keep getting strange error messages. I'm running Ubuntu Feisty.. The last couple times I tried to run the command "make", I received errors regarding basic packages that I did infact have.. The latest is this, regarding Perl:

You need to install libperl-dev in order to build the Perl plugin.

Missing tree view ic

Postby Alchera » 06 Sep 2007 00:13

In Kubuntu (7.04) I finally got upgraded to X-Chat 2.8.4 and discovered to my dismay that my beloved tree view icons no longer display. The previous version(s) of X-Chat always found them in /usr/share/xchat, not this one! :(

I moved them into /usr/local/share/xchat to no avail.

Any clues? I really really detest tab view and tree view without icons looks crap.

The world as I know it will cease. :shock:
