Full Specifications

What's new in version 2.6.0

Changes in 2.6




* You can now quickly add popular IRC networks in the Add Network screen.

* Message previewsfound in notifications can now be disabled in the application settings.

* You can now copy, share and export multiple messages by holding a message and tapping "More" inside a query.

* Revamped how notifications are displayed and notifications are now shown in-app so you can quickly see and response to messages in other queries.

* Channel topic can be found in the channel details screen.

* When a message fails to send, you can tap to try and resend the message.



We're committed to IRCv3 and pushing IRC forward. We've added support for some new IRCv3 capabilities:

* CAP v3.1, CAP v3.2 and `cap-notify`

* `echo/message` (providing `labeled-response` is available)

* `batch`

* `chghost`

* `invite-notify` - You can now see when other nicks are invited into a channel.

* `MONITOR` - Allows us to efficiently keep track of which nicks are offline and online in the query list.

* `draft/sts` - Palaver will respect any strict transport security policies an IRC server advertises.

* `draft/labeled-response`

New Commands


* ``/cycle`` - Cycle allows you to part and rejoin a channel.

* ``/raw`` - The raw command allows you to send raw unmodified IRC messages to the IRC server.

* ``/debug`` - Opens a new debug query showing all of the raw IRC messages.

Bug fixes


- Fixed some problems with auto-connect when Palaver is resumed from the background.

- Nickname completions will now update the nickname to complete the same case nickname.

- During dark mode while scrolling up in a query, we will now theme the scroll down button.

- `/join` command will now jump to the joined channel.

- We now show when a nickname you are trying to use is erroneus on the given IRC server inside the networks console.

- Various improvements with the night time theme in Palaver, message selection and URLs are now more prominent.

- When the font size is changed, we now update existing messages to use the new font size settings.

- Nickname completion with third-party keyboards improved.
