There are several ways you can get irssi:
- Sources for the latest release. They're pretty easy to compile, but read the included INSTALL file if you get into trouble.
- Binaries for the latest release.
- Nightly development snapshots. They might be broken once in a while, but usually should work just fine. You can get them as .tar.gz sources or binaries.
- SVN - You can also get the very latest version that exists. It works mostly like nightly snapshots, but is a bit more difficult to compile.
- Latest release version: 0.8.16-rc1
To verify the signatures:
- gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys DDBEF0E1
- You shouldn't really trust this key without verifying its fingerprint. See it with gpg --fingerprint email@example.com and ask someone if it matches (eg. #irssi).
- gpg --verify irssi-0.8.16-rc1.tar.gz.asc
- This key is different from the one used to sign binaries of versions before 0.8.10.
- More gpg help can be found from GPG manual
