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.

Yaayy! Konvi rocks. Now only if the nick column could be right justified, many of my friends would switch from xchat.

Good work guys, this app is getting very nice. The best irc client out there.

Will you replace the old Kirc application in KDE tree. I think Konversation have to be part of the official KDE desktop.

Only if the developers want to. Staying outside the default KDE packages has the advantage of having your own release schedule.

My friend installed Konversation 0.17 and it fails with autoconnect. It will connect to servers but it gives error message about every channel that they dont exist. He can join to them by manual but its slow cause he need to join over 20 channel. I hope 0.18 will fix this.

If you can report a bug with details ( which irc server etc ) it would be much better.

Konversation.org doesn't load for me at all. It's as if the site's simply vanished. What's the deal with that pray tell?

I use this in preferance to xchat now. But what I do miss is xchats perl, python and tcl scripts. Any chance these can be added. Would make Konservation more extensiable.

we're planning to implement scripting support, but I think it'll be a long-term job.

Hello,

Congrats for such nice program. In my opinion, this is much better than Xchat, we don't need xchat ported to Qt anymore ;)

Thanks! And keep up the good work!

I try this IRC client and there is lot of things I dislike.

-The icones for the user statut in user list are very ugly.
-I can't find how to change the arreangement of user name in settings window, I know on freenode no one has statut but on other irc network user does.
-The blink little led are quite stress

Else the UI is quite good.

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.
* Fixed incorrect size calculations for the channel topic text label causing cut-off text and unwanted collapsing of the topic area.

* The default tabs position is now 'Left', i.e. the treelist version of the tab bar.
* 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.
* Fixed a bug causing Channel List tabs not to be sorted below the status tab of the server they belong to in the treelist version of the tab bar, and corrupt its contents.
* Fixed margins in the Edit Network dialog.
* 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.
* Fixed a bug causing Konversation not to generate default command aliases for installed scripts at startup anymore.
* The bundled 'cmd' script now defaults to trying to decode command output as Utf-8 even when run on Python 2.
* Fixed the bundled 'bug' script not working.
* Fixed naming of bundled icons.
* Konversation now opts into Qt's high-DPI pixmap handling.
* Adjusted build system to use co-installable version of qca-qt5.

* Konversation now depends on KDE Frameworks v5.2.0 and Qt v5.3.0.
* The default nickname list theme has been updated to KDE's new Breeze visual identity.
