Irssi 1.2.3 Released

Posted on April 11th 2021

Irssi 1.2.3 has been released! It contains a large number of fixes to increase overall stability. There are no new features. All Irssi 1.2 users should upgrade to this version. See the NEWS for details.

If you had previously applied the GLib patch this is now of course included. Thanks to Zero King and Sergey Valentey for finding and fixing memory issues. Credit to Oss-Fuzz for uncovering some more. Apple users on ARM may thank Misty De Méo for fixing some peculiarities. Further contributions by Lauri Tirkkonen and Nutchanon Wetchasit. Many thanks to the Irssi team as well for making this release possible.

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.

Work continues hard on Irssi 1.3 which you can test by compiling the master branch from Git and help by testing Pull Requests or contributing. However, there still remain some nuisances which we want addressed before feeling comfortable to promote it to stable release.

The Irssi Team.
