ChangeLog for 0.8.16


  • Add -noautosendcmd to /SERVER and /CONNECT. Passing this option will force Irssi to not execute the content of the autosendcmd chatnet-setting upon connect.
  • Accept names replies with nick!user@host instead of just nick, if they are enabled (see bug #805).
  • Set window binds for channel items as sticky when re-creating window binds as part of /layout save. This fixes the bug where previously saved channel windows forgets their window number upon reconnect.
  • Add experimental support for DNSSEC DANE validation of certificates.
  • Strip the argument for boolean options (see bug #769).
  • Freenode have been readded to the list of networks in the default configuration file.
  • Disabled support for the insecure SSLv2 protocol.
  • Various documentation enhancements.
  • Add -ssl_pass to /connect and /server (see bug #305).


  • Fix crashing bug that can happen if the terminal height decreases before the first window is created.
  • Fixed minor compiler warnings.
  • Fixed possible crashing bug when processing an octal escape sequence.
  • Fixed the /ignore -network option (see bug #748).
  • Fixed signal handling for /exec'd commands. Irssi now sends the signal to the process group id instead of the process id.
  • Fixed segfault generated by SSL disconnections (see bug #752).
  • Fix compilation when build with -Werror=format-security. Patch by Jaroslav Skarvada.
