License Modification

Someone asked me to modify the license to make it more flexible when it comes to linking with non-GPL licensed applications. See the license link on the project home page for the detail of the change.

Thresher 1.1 Released

This release contain some minor bugs fixes and a few new features. Thresher now supports SSL connections to the IRC server. Unfortunately, this new capability only works under Windows. Mono users will have to compile without the 'SSL' flag.

A special thanks to Klemen for his excellent channel mode parser.

Thresher 1.0 Released

1.0 is finally done. This is the last release of Thresher. It will now move into maintenance mode with periodic bug fixes.

There are 2 source releases (one has the Visual Studio project files and one doesn't) and one binary release.

Thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions.

Beta 5 Released

I decided to postpone the final release and add one more (and hopefully last) beta. Due to some still unresolved issues I had to temporarily pull the SSL support. It will be re-added after the 1.0 release when these issues are resolved. Otherwise this beta contains minor bug fixes and code cleanups.

The final release will, as previously stated, contain a full implementation of RFC 2812.

Beta 4 Released

The last beta is finally out. There are lots of changes in this one including full DCC and encryption support.

The 1.0 will follow shortyly depending on bug reports and the progress of the Mentalis SecureSocket library.

Thanks to everyone for their comments. Please keep them coming.
