SwiftKit News

Update 0.85 - IRC Client Update!

Finally it's arrived, the update we've been promising you for months now. This update brings a multitude of fixes and features to the existing IRC Client. Some of these include nickname highlights, logging, clickable URL's, properly working themes, auto identify and channel or PM now flash. That's only a few of the changes and additions, not to mention a whole bunch of bug fixes that were causing crashes.

So please, if the IRC Client was holding you(or a friend) back from using SwiftKit we urge you to give it a go again. With the latest update the IRC Client in SwiftSwitch is of no comparison to the updated one in SwiftKit.

IRC Client Changes and Fixes:
* Textview no longer tries to access lines when it has none on MoveMove event
* Status is no longer logged when logging is disabled
* URLs split over multiple lines now work properly
* If a theme is missing an event colour entry, a default value is used (caused highlight colour to be set to white)
* Default browser should now be properly detected and launched
* Added ctcp command and ctcp nicklist options
* Nicklist items without icons now have a 5 pixel buffer on the left
* Queries now track nickname changes correctly
* Scrolling the textview large distances with the mousewheel no longer causes an error
* Adding a highlight and then reopening the options dialog no longer causes an error
* Pasting one line of text no longer automatically sends to IRC.
* Pasting 5 or more lines of text will now result in a confirmation prompt
* Pressing the down arrow while focused on a textbox will now always clear the text (when at the end of input history)
* Sessions will now be destroyed correctly when closed (caused a crash when closing the hosting application)
* Added auto rejoin on kick option (2 second delay).
* The nickname highlight will now beep when triggered
* Added hop command
* Fixed nasty bug in textview
* Added /clear and /clearall commands
* Channel list is now cleared before listing again
* Channel list will remain closed if closed while listing
* Reduced total switchbar height by 6 pixels
* Tabstrip tabs now have a border the same colour as frames
* Start page background now uses frame background colour
* Command buttons now only respond to clicks from the left mouse button
* Added logging feature
* URLs (web addresses) are now clickable
* Highlights now work

SwiftKit Changes and Fixes;
+ Multiple fixes made to the Atlas.
+ Fixed a bug in the To Do List.
+ Fixed a bug in the tips that crashed SwiftKit.
+ Manual updated.
+ TokTz-Ket-Dill quest added.
+ WorldInfo updated.

You are able to turn off the filter, just go to the Options window to turn it off.

bout time @ 17 May 2020 01:16 pm

bout time you guys fixed irc, it was total **** for SK till now... still missing the Huggle and slap command's although.

swiftwitch @ 17 May 2020 01:03 pm

love this

Prince|Myst @ 17 May 2020 12:35 pm

Looks good and stuff, but the thing I don't like is how you can't have any spaces at the bottom of text. In SwiftSwitch, you have 2 spaces after the latest text...But in SwiftKit, you don't. I'd use SwiftKit, if you had this.

Hammeh @ 17 May 2020 12:07 pm

Nice job - and to above, its the same in all IRC, just don't let go of your mouse and press ctrl +c.

StJohn @ 17 May 2020 11:24 am

this is all grteat, but i seem to have a problem in the chat where i cant copy things that are said, because when i try the highlights disappear once i let go of left mouse key

r666slipknot @ 17 May 2020 11:15 am

nice job

Ankit @ 17 May 2020 11:08 am

I havent used IRC but i will now

Sheffolk @ 17 May 2020 11:02 am

Will we still face some restrictions when using non-SwiftKit servers with the IRC client? I noticed it'll crash often while using someone else's server with this IRC (Just the IRC, mind you, not the entire SwiftKit client)

ZaINZaaa @ 17 May 2020 10:58 am

Hey, how do i even get into it -.- i dont know how to create an IRC acc, and i dont know what it is -.-

BHS_Jenner @ 17 May 2020 10:57 am

Everything ownz, but there is one thing that sucks really bad...
links on topic r now non-clickable, ****ing filter = annoying, cant click the links (on topics) to go to websites and ****... gf.... sad

nicola @ 17 May 2020 10:57 am

woooooooooooohooooo!!! u rule!!!!!!

Adib @ 17 May 2020 10:53 am

Amo a marcla, get SwiftKit at the official website (Swiftkit dot net).

Joey, highlighting is a feature that alerts you when your nickname (or any other set phrases) have been said through a beeping sound. You can edit it in the IRC options.

Butch748 @ 17 May 2020 10:52 am

Very Good update =D Keep up the Good Work =D

acid dagger @ 17 May 2020 10:52 am

Looler @ 17 May 2020 10:27 am

Wow best update of SK ever!

btrumpetp @ 17 May 2020 10:21 am

do the auto id before the connection to a server or else it just defeats the purpose if you're required to have a registred nick

Joey - P3ur fl3tch @ 17 May 2020 10:20 am

Wat do highlites do? and hw do u get em?

killjoyfuly @ 17 May 2020 10:14 am

Zammys Son @ 17 May 2020 10:14 am

Naise :D

Quad40 @ 17 May 2020 10:06 am

We need to get a right click huggle and slap in the next SK update. It makes those things much faster to do.

Dam Im Dum @ 17 May 2020 10:04 am
