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.

There is an auto -f (removes Censor)
Start > options > tab on top that says "IRC" uncheck the "enable message filtering" box .
Be sure to read your tips file before posting. There are a lot of helpful hints there that may answer a question or resolve a problem

can no longer click on links in irc - anyone any tips?


#176
AdamLHarp @ 05 2008 02:43 am

Just a couple more problems and suggestions
..:: The scroll conflict between Chat and the media player is not completely fixed.
..:: Also the medis player is playing random songs when shuffle is not selected.
..:: Please Add a Perform Like SwiftSwitch had.
..:: Please Add a Server List for differant SwiftIRC servers
..:: Make the Irc Start button Smaller, this takes up too much room, expecially for users that are in more then a couple channels. .:Suggestion; Make it more like SS IRC, where there was no start tab, you clicked Irc chat, then Connect, and chat loaded "over" it.
..:: Add Irc "Options" to the File > Options Dropdown menu up in the toolbar
..:: Add "New Server Window" to the File > Options Dropdown menu up in the toolbar
Keep Up the Good Work
(I apologise for posting bugs and suggestions here i know that this isnt the proper place, but as to this computers limitation this is the only acessable place that i can provide feedback.

SS and SK are both 100% legal clients and they follow guidelines set by jagex.


#174
Paula @ 04 2008 11:44 pm

I love the help but have been told Jagex is banning again for use of SS or SK.


#173
AdamLHarp @ 04 2008 09:58 pm

Nicely done, Now if only there was a Perform on startup option, and a server list.

Adib @ 04 2008 07:41 am

Adam;

1. I believe that bug has already be fixed
2. SK is only meant to support .m3u and .pls
3. That's working as intended


#169
AdamLHarp @ 03 2008 10:14 pm

Again great with the patch updates, so prompt, available quite quickly. still a few bugs.
..:: When media player and chat are both open and contain scroll bars, using the mouse scroll will make both boxes scroll.
..:: When adding a playlist you cannot chose wmp file WMP (windows media playlist)
..:: When adding Media song(s) It will not allow you to drag and drop from a media player although the drag and drop add+ icon still appears. (his is just a faster way to add music in my opinion as I have a few playlists in WMP)
Again, Great updates, just thought ide give you something to do since your running out of things to fix it seens. :P :smiles: keep op the awesome work

Adib @ 03 2008 07:31 am

Airyline, the slap and huggle actions will be added again, but the amsg command will not. There are far too many people already that abuse the command.

Random H, your comment would be a lot more helpful if you explained the missing key features to us. ;)


#162
Random H @ 03 2008 05:55 am

Personally I've used mIRC since I found out what it was, years ago. But when you guys brought out SK I had a look in the IRC to see if I could be tempted to use it. It's definitely an impovement over the first release, but it still has many key features missing.


#161
ile89 @ 03 2008 03:58 am

If you look at the chat options you would find the \"enable message filtering\" box. Unselect it and restart SK.


#160
Yo Ow Un Rd @ 03 2008 03:20 am

need a option for the -f mode, other wise you have to do /mode <nick> -f everytime thanks.


#159
Airyline @ 02 2008 02:41 pm

I still know a lot of people who prefer swift switch after this update even.. and A LOT seriously.

I think
-/Amsg command
-Left click for slap and huggle

would change a lot of peoples minds on that.

Coop, the height will be made adjustable in the next update.

Soundinghorn, what are you talking about?


#155
geo @ 31 2008 12:21 pm

sweet! i can't wait for the graphics update it's going to be great


#154
Coop @ 31 2008 10:50 am

I don't like the new size of the IRC... this recent update made it stretch for the length of the whole screen? Now I have to click way at the bottom to type, and there is no way to resize it to the previous size while keeping it at the top of the screen...


#153
AdamLHarp @ 30 2008 11:35 pm

there is an auto -f
Start > options > tab on top that say "IRC" uncheck the "enable message filtering" box


#152
Rusty @ 30 2008 10:59 pm

nice


#151
Dagger_87 @ 30 2008 08:24 pm

Looks great but we NEED, AUTO -F badly. Im not liking having to turn it off everytime i go into a channel :(.


#150
AdamLHarp @ 30 2008 03:00 am

Wonderful update, although i do like the old swiftswitch chat a little better.
.: as a scripter and an avid IRC & mIRC user i would like to suggest a few things:.
..:: Make the "start" button to the left smaller or a popup button. (many times im in many channels and this serves no purpose to me other then annoying me and taking up room.)
..:: Add a perform on connect option. (this serves many purposes to me and many others that im close to in irc)
..:: On most screen resolutions the "text box" is covered, or to close to the start bar. (I move my start bar and have it on autohide, but its quite annoying as well.)
..:: Incorperate a copy colors like mirc has (when you drag highlight a line or lines and hit <ctrl>+C it copies colors, bolds underlines etc.)
.:: fix the channelname bug... channel names now appear most of the time with a  box at the end when in the textfield. Ie. #NightOwl
..:: And lastly, a server menu (so people can find a server nearest them.)
Im not trying to criticise or degrade. Im just giving suggestions that many people can benefit from. I like the new SK IRC but as we all know "theres always room for improvement"
Until next time, keep up the outstanding work!!
~Adam~

Harley, the IRC comes with SwiftKit. Click the Show Internal Utilities button under the stats lookup and then click the yellow Pac-Man face to go to the IRC client interface. To learn more about IRC, do a Google search on SwiftIRC Wiki and go to the first result, or visit the #irchelp channel.
