SASL SCRAM-SHA support now in Irssi

Posted on April 1st 2024

The development version of Irssi now has support for the SCRAM-SHA-256 and SCRAM-SHA-512 challenge-response SASL authentication. You can use this mechanism on,, and maybe others. It is a mechanism where the server knows your password but you do not send the password itself to the server.

Thanks to Patrick Okraku for the contribution.
