XChat 2.8.7e release

News for 2.8.7e (18/Jan/2009)

www.xchat.org/files/binary/win32/xchat-2.8.7e.exe

• Fixed a rare Auto-Nick-Completion (non-TAB key) crash.
• Fixed a possible crash if you clicked "Add to favourites" in the main text area, while the server-list window was open in the background.
• The setting added in the previous version: "/set -or gui_tweaks 64 will now turn OFF user list icons." will now properly remove the prefix character from the right-click menu.
• Added -on and -off parameters to the /SET command. This can be used to set bits, for example gui_tweaks.
• /set -or gui_tweaks 128 will now turn OFF the text attribute button.

The automated crash reporting feature is showing that it's getting very stable indeed. Many days go by without a single report, yet hundreds or thousands of copies are downloaded each day. I'm tipping this release to be the most solid yet.

Funny, I'm getting mine from there and AVG is saying it has a trojan :(

AVG Anti-Virus reports xchat.exe (v2.8.7e) as a "Potentially harmful program Dialer.NVT". I have reported the binary as a "false alarm" and sent it to AVG for further analysis.

EDIT:

I received an automated reply from AVG:

"C:\Program Files\xchat\xchat.exe" - detection is correct

1. Correct detection

In case the file is detected correctly, it will not be removed from the AVG detection.

I just downloaded (again) from xchat.org and bitdefender detects Dialer.Generic.37751 malware. Please investigate.

Apparently Grisoft (makers of AVG) have realized the error of their ways.

It good to see the latest release of the XChat 2.8.7e because there have been quite few issues with XChat recently and if this will help in solving the issue it will be most welcome!! It is really good to see that such prompt action is taken to rectify problems which crop up out of the blue which cause such inconvenience to the XChat users!! Hope this will put an end to all the headaches that we are having lately!!

You know what you'd REALLY like? xchat 2.8.9!

(forgive me...I couldn't resist...even if it is some kind of bot)
