You have no idea how great of an experience this is going to be for you in the long run! I hope this turns out great because I need a great IRC client that doesn't cost anything.

XChat is good, but costs moolah in Windows.

@stapia.gutierrez: Thanks, I love the fact that people would actually use this. You comment has just kept me going a few more weeks!

BTW: If there is anyone who is good at making icons, could they make some for Spider? I will provide credits in the credits dialog.

Maybe you know of this site already, but if not prepare to have your mind blown.

Mind Blown.

Yes, I used it in the past but I need 'fresh' icons. :( Anyway, time to work on the throttle.
EDIT: Maybe I could use some icons from that site for now and get fresh ones later.

THE HORROR THE HORROR! oh, I see the last sentence. YAY! :D
EDIT: Well, if you want to try it, go over to the github page (here), click download source -> zip, unzip that and go into the folder and double click the build bat (made by X@MPP).

The upcoming Orange alpha is tomorrow! :beta1: :w00t:
The downside is at this moment, I have only implemented the throttle. I'll get working on the other features right now.
EDIT:
If you guys run into any issues running the source code or any future alphas (starting with Orange), please report it on the issue tracker here -> http://github.com/Am...piderIRC/issues
It'll allow me to keep track of bugs that need to be fixed.

Batch files are a thing of the past (they are from DOS after all), and havn't moved forward in like 30 years. Just seems like you shouldn't be using such old and broken technology.

@Programble: It still works, End of Discussion.

<On-Topic>
As stated from a earlier post, these are the things I am to implement before the Orange alpha is released.
  • Throttling (splits large messages and sends them in chunks)
  • CTCP/Ping
  • CTCP/Finger
  • Support for Away (sending away status)

So 2 down, 2 to go.
EDIT: Post all feature request on the issue tracker too. I started a couple as a list of things to finish before the big 1.0 release.
EDIT2: I have finally finished everything on that above list. Thats my last commit before tomorrow's Alpha.

You realize that XChat is open source, and you can build it yourself, right?

EDIT: Also, MOAR SCREENSHOTS!

:dozingoff: T3hC13h has tested the orange alpha and pointed out a few bugs and suggestions that I managed to implement today (but of course, I have more bugs to fix according to the issue tracker).

Heres Ruby's changelog so far:
  • Major Performance Improvements (especially on connect).
  • Ability to search channels in list dialog.
  • Lots of bug fixes.


Anyway, heres a screenshot from Ruby (so far).
