./chat/irssi, Secure and modular IRC client with text mode user interface

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0.1nb1, Package name: irssi-1.0.1nb1, Maintainer: maya

Irssi is a modular IRC client that currently has only text mode user
interface, but 80-90% of the code isn't text mode specific, so other UIs
could be created pretty easily. Also, Irssi isn't really even IRC specific
anymore, there's already a working SILC module available. Support for other
protocols like ICQ could be created some day too.

Log message:
Enable perl option by default.

This needs glib2 to run, and glib2 depends on perl, so no reason not to
support perl scripting here.

Requested by Dominik Bialy in PR 52008.

irssi: update to 1.0.0

v1.0.0 2017-01-03  The Irssi team <staff@irssi.org>
	* Removed --disable-ipv6 (#408).
	* /connect Network now aborts with an error if no servers have been
	  added to that network (#443).
	* /dcc commands now use quotes around spaces consistently.
	* bell_beeps was removed (#524, #565).
	* Switch to GRegex instead of regex.h (#412).
	+ irssiproxy can now forward all tags through a single
	  port. By Lukas Mai (mauke, #425).
	+ irssiproxy can also listen on unix sockets. By Lukas Mai (#427).
	+ send channel -botcmds immediately when no mask is specified (#175, #399).
	+ the kill buffer now remembers consecutive kills.
	  New bindings were added: yank_next_cutbuffer and append_next_kill
	  By Todd A. Pratt (#353, #414, #455)
	+ connections will avoid looking up IPv6 addresses if the machine does
	  not have an IPv6 address assigned (exact behaviour is implementation
	  defined, #410).
	+ Fix potential crash if scripts insert undef values into the completion
	  list (#413).
	+ Paste warning is now also shown on pasting overlong
	  lines. By Manish Goregaokar (#426).
	+ autolog_ignore_targets and activity_hide_targets learn a new syntax
	      tag/* and * to ignore whole networks or everything.
	  By Jari Matilainen (vague666, #437)
	+ /hilight got a -matchcase flag to hilight case
	  sensitively. By Thibault B (isundil, #421, #476).
	+ Always build irssi with TLS support.
	+ Rename SSL to TLS in the code and add -tls_* versions of the -ssl_*
	  options to /CONNECT and /SERVER, but make sure the -ssl_* options continue
	  to work.
	+ Use TLS for Freenode, EFnet, EsperNet, OFTC, Rizon, and IRC6 in the default
	+ Display TLS connection information upon connect. You can disable this by
	  setting tls_verbose_connect to FALSE.
	+ Add -tls_pinned_cert and -tls_pinned_pubkey for x509 and public key pinning.

	  The values needed for -tls_pinned_cert and -tls_pinned_pubkey is shown
	  when connecting to a TLS enabled IRC server, but you can also find the
	  values like this: Start by downloading the certificate from a given IRC

	      $ openssl s_client -connect chat.freenode.net:6697 < /dev/null \ 
2>/dev/null | \
	        openssl x509 > freenode.cert

	  Find the value for -tls_pinned_cert:

	      $ openssl x509 -in freenode.cert -fingerprint -sha256 -noout

	  Find the value for -tls_pinned_pubkey:

	      $ openssl x509 -in freenode.cert -pubkey -noout | \
	        openssl pkey -pubin -outform der | \
	        openssl dgst -sha256 -c | \
	        tr a-z A-Z

	+ Remove support for DANE validation of TLS certificates.

	  There wasn't enough support in the IRC community to push for this on the
	  majority of bigger IRC networks. If you believe this should be
	  reintroduced into irssi, then please come up with an implementation that
	  does not rely on the libval library. It is causing a lot of troubles for
	  our downstream maintainers.

	+ /names and $[...] now uses utf8 string operations. By Xavier
          G. (#40, #411, #471, #480).

	+ /channel /server /network now support modify subcommand. By
	  Jari Matilainen (#338, #498).

	+ /script reset got an -autorun switch (#540, #538).
	+ cap_toggle can now be called from Perl, and fields
	  cap_active and cap_supported can be inspected (#542).
	+ Make it possible to disable empty line completion. By Lauri
	  Tirkkonen (lotheac, #574).
	+ New option sasl_disconnect_on_failure to disconnect when

Log message:
irssi: add patch for buf.pl update as it is shipped with irssi.

previously it would create a world readable file containing chat
logs when /upgrade was used.

while a security fix, you have to jump through many hoops to be
affected by it - we don't enable perl scripts by default, we
don't run that perl script by default, and you'd have to know that
/upgrade exists in the first place, and run on a system where world
readability of files is a concern.

still, grab upstream update, bump PKGREVISION.

Update irssi to 0.8.19

v0.8.19 2016-03-23  The Irssi team <staff@irssi.org>

	- Fixed SASL EXTERNAL (#432)
	- Fixed regression when not using SASL (#438)
	- Fixed incorrect SSL disconnects when using SSL from modules/scripts
	- Fixed regression where proxy_string could not be configured or
	  certain file transfers could not be accepted (#445)
	- Fixed storing layout of !channels (#183)

	      /set term_appkey_mode off

v0.8.18 2016-02-13  The Irssi team <staff@irssi.org>
	* Modules will now require to define a
	      void MODULENAME ## _abicheck(int *version)
	  method to ensure that they are compiled against the correct Irssi
	* The signature of "message private" has been changed to
	      5: server, message, nick, address, target
	  in order to support "self messages". Module authors should
	  implement this change if they are using this signal.
	* Removing networks will now remove all attached servers and channels
	* The proxy module now has an /irssiproxy command.
	* sb_search has been moved to scripts.irssi.org
	* WIN32 has been completely removed (it had not been working and is
          lacking a maintainer.)

	  effect for anyone given that it has been unsupported for several years.
	+ CAP SASL PLAIN login is now supported natively.
	+ Paste bracket markers can be requested from terminal with
	      /set paste_use_bracketed_mode on
	+ "Self messages" generated by some bouncers can now be received in the

	  a new option: 'split_line_on_space' which defaults to on.

	  incorrect config files.
	+ Ctrl+^ (FS#721) and Ctrl+J can now be bound.
	+ Command history can be cleared with /window history -clear
	+ /hilight -mask -line is now supported (FS#275).
