Posted By: Henes. on 2011/9/6 5:06:45
AmIRC 3.6 has been released along with the new web site http://www.amirc.org/ where it can be downloaded.

AmIRC 3.6 brings support for UPnP port forwarding. It also supports turbo and passive DCC modes, making it work much better behind a NAT/firewall. A long standing bug with resuming DCC SEND has been fixed as well.

Read more for changes.

The full change log for AmIRC 3.6 is as follows:

- DCC: added turbo DCC send support.
- GUI: added a Default to Conference Mode option (in Setup->GUI->Channels).
- DCC: fixed DCC RESUME when AmIRC is sending.
- GUI: updated default server list.
- DCC: added option to convert spaces in file names to underscore, or to quote the filename (as supported by most modern clients).
- DCC: fixed resuming when the file name is quoted.
- DCC: added support for passive send/chat/schat (dcc xxx -passive nick ...).
- DCC: added DCC TSEND (turbo), DCC PSEND (passive) and DCC PCHAT (passive) aliases.
- General: fixed a potential race condition starting the built-in IdentD.
- Net: added transparent UPnP port forwarding (enabled by default). It is used for both DCC and the built-in IdentD.
- General: Restored the ability to load a key file. If valid key file is present the owner is displayed in the About window. Also the serial number is displayed in the CTCP VERSION reply.
- General: fixed numerous buffer overflows. Also fixed numerous crashes when low on resources.
- Net: updated netsplit detection code, it should work much better now.
- GUI: fixed marked text defaulting to black on black.
- GUI: changed default marked text background to MUI fill pen. Also changed default background to MUI halfshine pen.
- Input: filtered Insert/PageUp/PageDown/ScrollLock/PrintScreen/NumLock/Pause out.
