[2:00 PM] Mac IRC Client Gets A Maintenance Release
Kent Sorensen has released an update to Snak. Snak 3.0.2 is an IRC client allowing users to participate in Internet Relay Chat. IRC is a service that allows users from all over the world connect and interact (chat) about a wide variety of topics. Unlike Usenet newsgroups, IRC is real-time. In other words, it is more "discussion" like and less "e-mail" like. The new version is a maintenance release, and includes a number of bug fixes and performance enhancements. According to M. Sorensen:
Snak is a full featured IRC client with some unique and very useful features. It's fast, efficient and easy to use, and it is being updated and enhanced regularly.
New in version 3.02:
Input fields follow interface font and size.
Support for TalkCity overflow channels.
Better messages when text can't be sent to a channel.
Add server to channel lists selects and shows.
Support color in channel lists.
Faster quit and window closing.
Optional loud private message sound.
Window locations are remembered while the program is running, not just when it quits.
Fixed problem switching to next server in connection record when the first one timed out.
Fixed lock up when using the online help on pre 8.5 machines.
Fixed name sorting.
Fixed DCC progress time estimate for DCC resume.
Fixed problem that could leave channels "half open" if the connection to the server failed.
Fixed problem with wrong default font selected in channel preferences.
Snak is available as shareware for a 30 day trial period, after which a $20 registration fee is required. For more information, visit the Snak web site.
