1. xIrc 1.18 X11 Irc Client Release

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Hi Yall,

 Just uploaded the latest version of xIrc to both sunsite.unc.edu and
ftp.troll.no. Hopefully it won't take to long to make it to its proper homes
at either site.

 This latest release mostly has bug fixes. The socket handling should be more
robust but still has it's moments of bieng flakey on disconnects.


should handle keyed channels now. I have not verified this though.
