Irssi 1.0.5 Released

Posted on October 22nd 2017

Irssi 1.0.5 has been released. This release fixes a few security issues in Irssi as well as a few bugs. There are no new features. All Irssi users should upgrade to this version. See the NEWS for details.

Most issues have been identified using fuzzing, thanks to Hanno Böck and Joseph Bisch. We expect Joseph will be able to tell you more about his newest fuzzer at on the weekend!

For more information refer to the security advisory.

This release can be downloaded from our releases page. Binary test packages for various Linux distributions are automatically generated by the openSUSE Build Service and are available for download in the irssi-test repository.

Please check with your distro whether they provide officially updated packages.

We currently do not have any alternate advice.

The Irssi Team.
