I am happy to announce the 0.6.4 release of Smuxi. This release
contains important changes for supporting Windows and Mac OS X as it
no longer requires the GNOME# library. The SSH-support for the
communication between the server and the frontend is now official and
has been integrated into the GUI. This means Smuxi can safely be used
now with NAT and port-based firewalls. For a detailed list of changes,
please read the feature and bugfix list below.

Smuxi is available for download from:

What is it?
Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, flexible, user-friendly and cross-platform
IRC client for advanced users, targeting the GNOME desktop.

The special feature of Smuxi is that it can be used like the typical
irssi+screen combo. The IRC session can run on a server (using
`smuxi-server') and a frontend (like `smuxi-frontend-gnome') then can
connect to that. The frontend can then be detached and re-attached at
some later point without losing any IRC connections or messages.
