Changes from 1.0.1 to 1.1:
We are extremely pleased to announce Konversation's newest major release, v1.1.
Konversation 1.1 is a special release for us in multiple ways: It's our farewell
to KDE 3, by way of being the last major release built upon that venerable
platform. It's also our biggest release yet, in terms of the number and
magnitude of the changes.
The additions and improvements in this release are both user-visible and under
the hood. Some of the highlights are rewritten connection handling (robustness
and correctness improvements, better support for IRC URLs, bookmarking and
more), redone DCC with better UI and Passive/Reverse DCC support, a redone away
system with the addition of auto-away support, redone and much more useful
remember / marker line support, a new outbound traffic scheduler that is capable
of aggressive throttling to avoid flooding while smartly reordering messages to
improve latencies, great convenience additions like a "Next Active Tab" shortcut,
and much, much more, along with a large number of bugfixes and tweaks to round
things out. Note: All fixes made since RC1 are marked with a "[New since RC1]"
label in the changelog.
We're confident that this release is the best and most robust version of
Konversation published so far, and upgrading comes highly recommended to all
users. Enjoy!

* Changed the OSD screensaver check logic to work in KDE 4.
* [New since RC1] Fixed on screen display occassionally reverting to the default

Connection handling
* Improved behavior with regard to reusing existing connections in connection
attempts that provide an initial channel to join, such as command line
arguments, the DCOP interface, the bookmark system or irc:// links).
Previously, the application would have inconsistently either reused an
existing or created a new connection.
* Better dialog messages in the interactive variant of the decision to either
reuse or create a new connection (from the Server List dialog and the Quick
Connect dialog).
* Improved and more consistent display of connection names (i.e. network or
server host name) throughout the application.
* Much improved irc:// URL support for connection intanciation, with support
added for IPv6 host names and many of the features proposed by the Mirashi
* Eliminated redundant irc:// URL parsing codepaths in favor of a single one.
* Added support for irc:// URLs to the chat views.
* Removed "konversationircprotocolhandler" shell script. The Konversation
executable now understands irc:// URLs directly.
* Initiating connections from command line arguments and options now works also
when the application is already running.
* Fixed a bug that would cause a connection initiated from command line options
not to get past the identity validation stage when the configuration file was
unitialized and empty.
* The server list dialog will now always be closed when starting Konversation
with command line arguments to initiate a connection, consistent with the
configuration-based auto-connect behavior.
* Providing a channel in the creation of a new connection (i.e. via command line
arguments, the DCOP interface, the Quick Connect dialog, the bookmark system
or irc:// links) now consistently pre-empts the stored auto-join channel list
if the target of the connection is a network or the hostname is found to be
part of a configured network. Previously, this would only work for Quick
Connect and the bookmark system (which caused the infamous Sabayon user flood
in #kde due to their "Get Support" desktop link connecting to Freenode, which
in an unconfigured Konversation has #kde in its auto-join list).
* Connections now have globally unique IDs.
* The DCOP interface now understands connection IDs in addition to host names.
* The scripting systems now uses globally unique connection IDs rather than
server host names to refer to connections, fixing a bug where scripted
responses were being handed to all connections sharing a hostname (which was
actually intentional in the absence of connection IDs, but undesirable for
* Improved iteration behavior over a network's server list on connection losses.
* The "Reconnect" action now works also when Konversation doesn't consider the
connection to be in a disconnected state.
* Improved the server status view messages related to reconnection attempts.
* Consistently apply the "Reconnect delay" setting (previously confusingly named
"Reconnect timeout"), which wasn't done before.
* Fixed a bug that could cause the connection process to claim that a DNS lookup
was successful when it actually wasn't.
* Fixed opening bookmarks with spaces in the target address name (which may be a
network name, and networks may have spaces in their name).
* Properly update the state of the "Add/Remove to Watched Nicknames" nickname
context menu actions when the connection isn't to a config-backed network, in
which case there's no way to store and make use of those list entries.
* Fixed a crash when quitting the application with a resident connection that
disconnected due to an SSL error.
* Fixed crashes in the DCOP interface if no connection was present.
* Make the "Reconnect" action available even while ostensibly in the process of
* Fix possible crash when closing all views and subsequently creating a new
* Fixed crash upon auto-connect at application startup.
* Improved the naming of preferences related to automatic reconnection attempts
to be less confusing.
* Made it possible to set the number of automatic reconnection attempts to
* Provided better default values to the preferences related to automatic
reconnection attempts.
* Fixed crash when opening a Konsole tab and Konsole was not installed.
* Fixed allowing the user to create an infinite loop of showing the SSL
connection details dialog upon being presented with the invalid certificate
multiple choice dialog at connection time by checking "Do not ask again" and
then clicking "Details".
* Made it possible to set a Quit message independently from the Part message.
* Saving a newly-created identity is no longer allowed without entering a real
* Apply switching the identity in the identity dialog as opened from the network
dialog to the network's settings.
* Have the Edit/Delete/Up/Down buttons for the nickname list of an Identity
correctly change state according to the selection
Away system
* Added per-identity support for automatic away on a configurable amount of user
desktop inactivity and/or screensaver activation, along with support for
automatic return on activity.
* Fixed the "Global Away" toggle to make sense and update its state properly.
* Turned parameter-less '/away' into a toggle: Sets away state with default
message initially, and unsets away state if already away.
* Added an '/aunaway' command to complement '/aaway' (previously, there was only
* Broadly rewrote away management related code for improved robustness and less
duplication and hacks (e.g. no more abuse of multiServerCommand for global
* Massive DCC refactoring and improved reliability.
* Passive DCC support (Reverse DCC RECV, SEND).
* Replaced the DCC Transfer Details dialog with a retractable transfer details
pane directly in the DCC Status tab.
* Added DCC transfer average speed reading to the DCC transfer details panel.
* The DCC Status tab now remembers its column widths across sessions.
* Fixed duplicated quotation marks around file names in DCC transfer status
* Fixed "Open File" DCC dialog remembering the last viewed location incorrectly.
* Added an "Open Folder" button to the DCC transfer details panel.
* Added check for whether the URL is well-formed before initiating a DCC send.
Fixes a bug of dragging a nickname link in the chat view onto the query chat
view drop target starting a DCC transfer that cannot succeed.
* Ported the DCC code away from relying on server group IDs to refer to
connections, made it use connection IDs instead. Fixes potential bugs with
multiple concurrent connections to the same network.
* Fixed queued DCC transfer items not picking up on download destination
directory changes.
* Fixed bug leading to crash upon initiating DCC Chat when "Focus new tabs" was
* [New since RC1] New transfer items added to the DCC panel's transfer list are no
longer automatically selected, meaning work on other items in the list occuring
at the same time no longer gets interrupted.
* [New since RC1] The "Filename:" line in the DCC panel's detailed info pane is
now using text squeezing to avoid an increase in minimum window width with long
file names.
* [New since RC1] Failed receives now longer show 833TB/s as their transfer
Blowfish support
* Fixed FiSH-style +p prefix to send clear text to channel despite an encryption
key being set.

ciphertext. This fixes using characters outside the ASCII range with blowfish
* Fixed CTCP (and thus DCC) requests to nicknames for whom an encryption key is
* Added support for encrypted topics.
* If an encryption key is set, a lock icon will now be shown next to the input
* Added a '/showkey <channel|query>' command to show the encryption key for the
target in a popup dialog.
* Improved auto-replace behavior with multiple matches in one line (fixes
multiple Wikipedia links).
* Fixed bug that could cause auto-replace to replace the wrong group of the
matching string.
* Auto-replace is now case-sensitive in regular expression mode.
* Added regular expression editor button to auto-replace preferences.
* Fixed conditional enabling of the RegExpEditor button in the auto-replace
preferences page.
* Fixed being asked twice whether to close a query upon ignoring the opponent.
* Fixed crash when opting to close a query upon chosing to ignore the opponent
from the context menu of his nickname.
Watched Nicknames
* Improved robustness of the Watched Nicknames Online system.
* The "Offline" branches in the "Watched Nicks Online" list will now be omitted
when there are no offline nicks for the respective network.
* Fixed display of WHOIS spam prompted by the Watch List's WHOIS activity.
* Connections to non-config-backed targets no longer show in Watched Nicks
* [New since RC1] Actually honor the preference to enable/disable the Watched
Nicknames Online system, and apply it at runtime.
* [New since RC1] Make sure the periodic Watched Nicknames Online check actually
starts running within the same session after adding the first nickname to the
* [New since RC1] Fixed a crash on quit with the Watched Nicks Online tab open and
there being an open connection to a network that nicks are being watched for.

* Allow higher values than 99 in the min/max users filter spin boxes in Channel
List views.
Under the Hood / Protocol
* Rewrote the outbound queue scheduling system to be smart enough to reorder
outbound traffic to reduce interactive latency while aggressively throttling
the rate to prevent flooding. Use '/queuetuner' to tweak.
* Rearranged when and how auto-who is triggered upon channel join a bit, to
avoid excessive flooding on multiple concurrent joins in some cases.
* Auto-Who reliability improvements.
* Fixed auto-join with very many channels (the auto-join command would exceed
the maximum buffer length; it is now split into multiple commands as needed).
* Fixed bugs around rejoining channels after reconnects related to the cause of
the disconnect, channel passwords and picking the actual list of joined
channels over the network's auto-join list.
* Improved behavioral consistency in situations where the auto-join list is
preempted by a transitory auto-join channel (bookmarks, etc.).
* Fixed bug that caused the topic state not to be cleared properly prior to
rejoining channels during reconnects.
* Fixed onotice payload being cut off after the first word.
* Changed RPL_WHOISOPERATOR handling to internationalize the common case ("is an
IRC Operator") and otherwise passthrough the string sent by the server.
* Fixed parsing of alternate invite format on Asuka ircds (QuakeNet).
* Added support for PRIVMSG from the server.
* Support RPL_UMODEIS.
* Announce 'k' channel mode (i.e. channel key) changes in non-raw mode as well.

sending, as some clients don't like lower- or mixed-case commands as the user
may have entered them.
* Display mode for your nick and channels you're not in.
* Fixed per-channel encoding settings for the channels of a network being lost
when the network is renamed.
* Fixed crash when receiving actions for channels the client is not attending.
* Made newline handling in the DCOP interface more robust, fixing a potential
security problem (CVE-2007-4400).
* A few speed optimizations and memory leak fixes.
* [New since RC1] Fixed a crash on quit during KDE logout or when quitting by
Included scripts

* Channel links following mode characters or surrounded by interpunctuation are
now properly recognized in the chat window.
* The context menus for URLs and channel links in the topic area now match the
context menus in the chat window.
* Multiple ignore or unignore actions ordered at the same time will no longer be
shown on separate lines in the chat window.
* The nickname context menus in the chat window, topic are and the nickname list
will now show "Ignore", "Unignore" and "Add to Watched Nicknames" entries as
* A bug that could lead to the chat window nickname context menu actions ceasing
to function after the targeted user left the channel has been fixed.
* The Server List dialog now allows connecting to a specific server in a network
even when a connection to that network has been previously established. If
connection is active, a dialog box will verify whether to disconnect from the
current server and connect to the chosen one instead, otherwise the connection
will simply be reestablished using the newly chosen server.
* The Quick Connect feature will now properly warn when the identity to be used
in the connection attempt is not set up properly.
* The appearance and behavior of the warning about an incorrectly set-up
have been improved. A prior connection attempt will now be automatically
after the identity settings have been corrected.

and rewritten for improved consistency, reliability and clarity. The general
layout of the dialog has been improved as well.
* The naming of certain actions in the Configure Shortcuts dialog has been
improved to make them easier to recognize outside of their normal context in
the application interface.
* Numerous improvements to keyboard navigation have been made.
* The nickname list now longer allows drag'n'drop of channel or user links from
the chat window onto list entries, as a DCC transfer of those data sources
