2 months after releasing Smuxi 0.6.4 I am proud to announce the first
bugfix release, codenamed 'Claire'. This version fixes all bugs
that were reported since the release of 0.6.4.

The most notable change is the optimized nickname color feature which
has been redesigned to select colors which will look good on your
screen. The algorithm is based on the Web Content Accessibility
Guidelines published by the W3C. This feature is now enabled by default
for new installs. Existing users are encouraged to visit the preferences
to enable the feature. To assist in tracking your conversations,
nicknames in your replies will now be colored too.

The default font for Windows was changed from Monospace to FixedSys
which should give a much improved experience.

A full list of changes is included 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.

The project website can be found at:
