Description:

Konversation is a user-friendly Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client made by KDE.

--- What's new ---

1.7.2:
Konversation v1.7.2 is a repackage of v1.7.1 with incomplete and badly maintained translations removed. They were accidentally included with the v1.7.1 release. There are no code changes in this release.

1.7.1:
Konversation v1.7.1 is a maintenance release that addresses issues with some of the new features introduced in the last major release, such as SASL EXTERNAL and server-time support, along with other minor fixes. As per usual this maintenance release also ships the latest round of translation updates.

1.7:
Konversation v1.7 is a major feature release focusing on greatly expanded protocol support, with newly-added support for many more IRC v3 extensions and the much-requested support for SASL EXTERNAL and 'server-time'. Many bugfixes and cleanups along with reinstated features initially lost in the first Frameworks 5-based release series v1.6.x are included as well. Finally, the handbook has been thoroughly refreshed in this release, and building and running on macOS and Windows have seen several fixes.

Me agree.
I seriously do not understand why Quassel is included in KDE ? I tried to use it but I was forced to use Konversation anyway, for DCC transfer... Konversation is THE KDE answer for IRC.

While Quassel is a wee bit off-topic here: Quassel is not included with KDE, it's a third-party app.

And thanks for the compliment :).

Well, the KDE people agree you here, but not the Kubunutu people. But I would say "Fuck *buntu" anyway if you would ask me :P

I am using Droid sans too...

but these look more beautiful and different to me...

I'm using...
7pt at 96 DPI,
hinting style set to "Full"
and sub-pixel rendering enabled

I'll try with hinting style "Slight"...

"Full" is way too aggressive. Especially with sub-pixel rendering enabled, FreeType produces the best results at "Slight" imho.

This release deserve a big thanks to the Konversation Team. I happily use it now and I can't wait for the future KDE4 version !
I also hope that scripting capability will bring in the future some great new features :)

Thanks for your great work. Anyway, I'm curious to know if there's the chance we will get a fserve with Konversation. Right now if you want to run a fserve with linux your choices are really limited and there's absolutely no equivalent for sysreset (it works in wine, though) - currently I'm using xchat with the obsidian2 script.

I won't rule it out for the future, but I'll also have to say honestly that it's a very low priority item for us. In the immediate future we're going to be quite busy with KDE 4 porting, and afterwards our attention will probably be focussed on a new text view and greatly improving extensibility (scripting & co). The latter might also help your cause eventually, though.

Cheers,
Sho

Hi,

Does anybody know if Konversation will be ported to KDE4/QT4 ? The website's svn seems to still links to the KDE3 version :-/

Hi DanaKil,

the port will be started in the near future, once Konversation 1.1 is done (which will be the least release for KDE 3).


Cheers,

Could you tell me what your font setup is in the screenshots? I would guess it's Helvetica with no AA? Do you have the bytecode interpreter enabled or disabled? It looks quite nice.

"Tahoma" from Monotype's Matthew Carter, 8pt, no anti-aliasing, bytecode interpreter enabled.

I just switched to KDE after 4 years of using Gnome. For my purposes, Konversation was a drop-in replacement for X-chat.

Great work. Clean interface, stable, has all of the features I need. Sober design. Things are logical.

Just wanted to encourage you to keep working on it, because this is a quality application.

Thanks for writing it!

After the release of xchat 2.6 up from 2.4 I noticed a lot of things that really made me wonder about their development process. The seem to be taking the graphical settings out of the graphical irc client. Being so disgruntled with them I started looking for alternatives.
I like Konversation. It is not as full featured as Xchat but I'm sure over time it will get there and hopefully surpass Xchat.

Thanks for all the good work!

Changes from 1.6-beta1 to 1.6:
* Improved support for character set aliases via KCharsets.
* Improved behavior when reconnecting and Konversation had to use an alternate nickname for the previous connection because the preferred nickname was already in use: Konversation will now try harder to go back to nicknames sorted earlier in the identity's nickname list, instead of advancing down the list without checking whether earlier nicknames have become available again.
* Konversation will no longer give up trying to connect when only a single nickname is configured and not available at connection time. Instead, it will do as many reconnection attempts as allowed by user configuration.

* Tabs can now be reordered by drag and drop again.
* Fixed various rendering issues in the treelist version of the tab bar and made it high-DPI scaling-capable.

* Improved wording and correctness of several interface messages.
* Fixed a bug causing some interface messages and labels not to use their translated versions when running with a language other than US English.
