#990 Better Text Chat

Mumble (514)

Just a couple (relatively) simple ideas to improve the text chat for Mumble

1: Be able to have a dedicated window for the Chatbar and Log. The chat window should be separate from the channel/tree window. The reasoning for this is because I don't need to see who's in my channel; I just need to hear them, therefore I would like to keep the tree window minimized all the time. I have to be able to see the log and chatbar to use it, therefore I'd like it to take up the least amount of space as possible. My workaround for this is to use Mumble in Minimal view with the Log expanded as far as it will go, and the tree as small as possible; but that's not ideal.

2: Keep a log. This idea seems easier than the current mumur.log that keeps channel moves, connections, etc.. Just be able to choose to keep all the text chat, and save it as chat.log with [ {channel} - {IP} - {user} - {message} ]

    Then let an option to keep the old system (tree and log + chat bar) in a same window if we are satisfied.
