29 bugfixes and 13 features later I am happy to announce the second
bugfix release, 0.7.2 codenamed 'Lovegood'. This version fixes all bugs
that were reported since the release of 0.7.1 but also introduces some
very sexy new features!

As the codename suggests, this release contains both love and goods.
There are new features that everybody loves such as: file logging,
configurable highlight words (Chris Le Sueur), fully customizable
filters to ignore messages or events, markerlines which device old
messages from new messages, enhanced network status and window title
format, and extended CTCP support. Too good to be true? It's real!  The
feedback I received from FOSDEM 2010 has spurred development and
attracted new developers and translators.

Smuxi news can also be retrieved by following the official Smuxi
Twitter account: http://twitter.com/smuxi

New languages includes: Portuguese (Americo Monteiro), Danish (Joe
Hansen), partially Finnish (Kalle Kaitala), and partially Catalan
(Siegfried-Angel Gevatter Pujals). Updated languages includes: French
(Clément BOURGEOIS), German (Bianca Mix), Italian (Vincenzo
Campanella), Czech (Michal Simunek), Swedish (Martin Bagge), and
British (Ryan Smith-Evans).

Going forward, translations will be coordinated and maintained by using
Transifex. If you wish to submit or update translations, simply visit

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

Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application
(engine) can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet
around-the-clock; one or more frontends then connect to the core. This
way, the connection to IRC can be kept up even when all frontends have
been closed. The combination of screen and irssi served as example for
this architecture.

Smuxi also supports the regular single application mode. This behaves
like a typical IRC client; it doesn't need separate core management and
utilizes a local engine that is used by the local frontend client.
