Pretzels, Chips And Updates: Snak 4.8 Released

Kent Sorensen has released a maintenance version of Snak, bringing it to version 4.8. Snak 4.8 is an IRC client app designed to allow users to create internet discussion groups with multiple servers. The update has new features and performance enhancements including improved DCC tranfer rates. According to Ken Sorensen:

Snak is a full featured IRC client with some unique and very useful features.

Version 4.8 features an improved window sharing option that stacks the docked channels in the window instead of tiling them. This new feature lets the active channel use the entire window area and the embedded channel bar shows you when the other channels receive text.

DCC transfer speed has been improved in version 4.8 and Snak now supports long filenames on OS X. DCC resume transfer speed calculations have been improved, and there is now the option to automatically rename incoming files when duplicates are found
