  • Removed --disable-ipv6 (#408).

  • /connect Network now aborts with an error if no servers have been
    added to that network (#443).

  • /dcc commands now use quotes around spaces consistently.

  • bell_beeps was removed (#524, #565).

  • Switch to GRegex instead of regex.h (#412).

    Note your existing ignore or hilight rules may need updating, for example by replacing GNU \< and \> with \b


  • irssiproxy can now forward all tags through a single
    port. By Lukas Mai (mauke, #425).

  • irssiproxy can also listen on unix sockets. By Lukas Mai (#427).

  • send channel -botcmds immediately when no mask is specified (#175, #399).

  • the kill buffer now remembers consecutive kills.
    New bindings were added: yank_next_cutbuffer and append_next_kill
    By Todd A. Pratt (#353, #414, #455)

  • connections will avoid looking up IPv6 addresses if the machine does
    not have an IPv6 address assigned (exact behaviour is implementation
    defined, #410).

  • Fix potential crash if scripts insert undef values into the completion
    list (#413).

  • Paste warning is now also shown on pasting overlong
    lines. By Manish Goregaokar (#426).

  • autolog_ignore_targets and activity_hide_targets learn a new syntax
    tag/* and * to ignore whole networks or everything.
    By Jari Matilainen (vague666, #437)

  • /hilight got a -matchcase flag to hilight case
    sensitively. By Thibault B (isundil, #421, #476).

  • Always build irssi with TLS support.

  • Rename SSL to TLS in the code and add -tls_* versions of the -ssl_*
    options to /CONNECT and /SERVER, but make sure the -ssl_* options continue
    to work.

  • Use TLS for Freenode, EFnet, EsperNet, OFTC, Rizon, and IRC6 in the default

  • Display TLS connection information upon connect. You can disable this by
    setting tls_verbose_connect to FALSE.

  • Add -tls_pinned_cert and -tls_pinned_pubkey for x509 and public key pinning.

    The values needed for -tls_pinned_cert and -tls_pinned_pubkey is shown
    when connecting to a TLS enabled IRC server, but you can also find the
    values like this: Start by downloading the certificate from a given IRC

    $ openssl s_client -connect irc.example.net:6697 < /dev/null 2>/dev/null | \
      openssl x509 > example.cert

    Find the value for -tls_pinned_cert:

    $ openssl x509 -in example.cert -fingerprint -sha256 -noout

    Find the value for -tls_pinned_pubkey:

    $ openssl x509 -in example.cert -pubkey -noout | \
      openssl pkey -pubin -outform der | \
      openssl dgst -sha256 -c | \
      tr a-z A-Z
  • Remove support for DANE validation of TLS certificates.

    There wasn't enough support in the IRC community to push for this on the
    majority of bigger IRC networks. If you believe this should be
    reintroduced into irssi, then please come up with an implementation that
    does not rely on the libval library. It is causing a lot of troubles for
    our downstream maintainers.

    G. (#40, #411, #471, #480).

  • New setting completion_nicks_match_case (#488).

  • cap_toggle can now be called from Perl, and fields
    cap_active and cap_supported can be inspected (#542).

    Tirkkonen (lotheac, #574).
