Release Sources

Latest release version: {{ page.version }} – [NEWS][14]  

{% include relnews_artef_block.markdown ver=page.version %}

See the included [INSTALL][15]{:rel='external'} file for building instructions

To verify the signatures:

gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys '7EE6 5E30 82A5 FB06 AC7C 368D 00CC B587 DDBE F0E1'

You shouldn't really trust this key without verifying its fingerprint. See it with gpg --fingerprint staff@irssi.org and ask someone if it matches (eg. on #irssi).

gpg --verify irssi-{{ page.version }}.tar.xz.asc

(This key is different from the one used to sign binaries of versions before 0.8.10. More gpg help can be found from GPG manual)
