Irssi 0.8.13 Released

Posted by Geert Hauwaerts on April 1st 2009

It has been a while since we last released. First off, this is NOT an April Fool’s joke! Irssi 0.8.13 is out and we ask that you check the NEWS file for changes!

It can be downloaded from our download page.

This release was brought to you by the Irssi Core Development teams tears, sweat and hard work and with invaluable contributions from our fabulous users. We’d also like to take this opportunity to welcome two new developers to the team; Alexander Færøy (ahf) and Tom Wesley (tomaw)

Alexander has been involved with Irssi for a while and joined the development team back in October 2008. He’s also involved with the Exherbo project and he will be implementing some nifty new features for the next release! So keep your eyes peeled on the changelog and look out for his contributions!

Tom has also been around for some time, a long time Irssi user who over the years has dedicated much of his time to helping other users and easing the load on developers in the various #irssi support channels. He’s recently agreed to take over the responsibility of maintaining the Scripts & Themes archives, so if you have updates, new scripts or themes and you would like them added to the site he’s the person to talk to!

So, here’s to Alex and Tom, two valuable contributors – Welcome to the team!

Windows Installer

Posted by Sebastian Pipping on January 30th 2008

Joshua Dick and Sebastian Pipping have been putting our work into improving the Irssi experience for Windows users. We made an installer built on NSIS and an USB archive made to be put on an USB stick and allow carrying your personal Irssi instance with you.

Both packages offer running Irssi in two modes: either through cmd (the default Windows command line) or puttycyg (a Putty-based command line) which mainly looks better than cmd.

Have fun with it and report any bugs!
