Just in time, with the beginning of 2009 we are proud to announce the
release of Smuxi 0.6.3! This release is the 3rd bugfix release of the
0.6 series but also contains as usual new features for your joy of
upgrading to the new version.

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.

The project website can be found at:
