Snak Updated With Action List

Kent Sorensen has released an update for Snak, bringing it to version 4.9. Snak is an IRC client app designed to allow users to create Internet discussion groups with multiple servers. The update features performance enhancements including an Action List and expanded buttons and menus. According to Ken Sorensen:

Snak is a full featured IRC client with some unique and very useful features. Snak 4.9 has now been released.

Version 4.9 features the Actions list which allows you to set up automatic responses to many events. Some of the possible events include channel message, private message, someone joining a channel, you joining a channel, a DCC transfer succeeding or failing and many other things.

Each event has a list of possible responses, including sending of a private or public message, highlight, ignore etc. Each Action can be finely tuned to a specific set of circumstances if necessary. The manual has a full chapter on the new feature.

The Actions feature is now used in place of the separate Highlight, Speech and DCC auto accept preferences of earlier versions.

Also new in 4.9 are command buttons under the userlist, and an editor for command buttons, tool and contextual menus. The editor is accessed from Customize... item in the tools menu.
