What's New
Version 0.8.6:
  • Large preferences refactor, preferences now affect their values immediately.
  • New Server and Network preference panes, equivalent to the /server and /network commands for setting up connections.
  • New Appearance preference pane, includes a written theme preview for better stability; font settings for Irssi fonts.
  • Shortcut support, old shortcut system is gone and replaced with a new system capable of mapping any key mappable to a menu item. Old F1-F12 shortcuts are copied to the new system on first launch.
  • Added /itunes command, prints your current iTunes song in the channel.
  • Improved text encoding support, text encoding is now set globally in preferences and also affects the correct variables in the Irssi core.
  • Nickname list can now be hidden globally from the Appearance preference pane.
  • Many more subtle changes I've forgotten about.

I'm working on it, however it was more important to get a working Snow Leopard build and this necessitated the change in perl support.

Sets to ASCII by default, the preferences gui is broken and will reset the program back to ASCII requiring people who want proper support for, say, unicode to do /set term_charset = utf-8 on the console to get it. Ridiculous.

I appreciate it was annoying, possibly not as world ending as you implied though. It is now fixed in 0.8.6.5 onwards. If you find bugs like these, please feel free to file a ticket in my trac installation at http://trac.sysctl.co.uk/macirssi/.

"Not as world ending"
Which is why it remains on the dock, the app is great, but still annoying at times, I also thought there was an existing bug report about this on the trac (much better filed than I usually do them)

so far so good, but LASTLOG is not working: unknown command

I'm sorry, /lastlog is a feature of the curses text frontend of Irssi which is not compiled into Irssi when it is compiled for inclusion in MacIrssi. (MacIrssi counts as a completely separate frontend). Adding a MacIrssi implementation isn't planned at the moment, if you file it in trac as a ticket I can try and plan it for future work

It compiles using macports. May be this will help for investigation.

Sorry, this was not the problem. I can compile the fe-text front end no problem, however the MacIrssi GUI counts as a completely separate frontend (fe-aqua) and therefore fe-text is never compiled in alongside fe-text. This is why there is no /lastlog at the moment because the command itself is part of fe-text, not the Irssi core.

It would be nice if there was a way to vary the opacity of the window, it's hard to read IRC channels when there's browser windows behind

a very nice irc app with lots of potential options that are hard to set without a techy knowledge...

beeping and noises on highlights?

Prefs panel could use lot more...

ABOXOFJOSH, I'm not sure what you are yelling about. I'm using a theme and have the window maximized and it remembers it, maybe your prefs got courpted so it can't save them, try deleting them and setting it again

Um... after I configured MacIrssi in the preferences window and restartet it, it crashed unexpected. When I started again, it threw the Crash Reporter message on the screen - but then just quick instantly again. Now this is repeating for every start of the application - not even resetting did work.

I then redownloaded and unpacked it again, but somehow it has it's preferences somewhere else than inside /~user/Library/Preferences/MacIrssi.preferences? Because it still crashes after every start.

Any clues on this? Sorry, I was not even able to send the Crash Report log due to the instant re-crash of the App :)

I am on a MacBook Pro 1st Gen with Leopard 10.5.7

There is also irssi config state stored in ~/.irssi/ which you will need to reset if you've managed to get it into this state. If you can reproduce the bug please head over to http://trac.sysctl.co.uk/macirssi to submit bugs.

Crashes on launch, on my iBook 900:

Thread: Unknown
Link (dyld) error:
incompatible cpu-subtype

Ironically, a major reason I choose irssi over other irc clients is because of its low cpu usage and system requirements.

MacIrssi only supports G4 or newer processors at the moment. Though I do concede that I don't mention that on the website.
