A completely new lightweight client has been added in this version. We're also introducing a persistence package, wich allows you to permanently store ignore lists and room op and access privilidges. Also new is the ability to kick users out of rooms or off the server for a given amount of time. Lastly, a number of bugs have been fixed.
This is a release candidate for version 1.1.0. If you encounter any bugs in this release, or anything else that has slipped our attention, please send a bug report or post to the forums. We expect to release the final version 1.1.0 in a week or two.
