The command-line irc client f-irc has reached version 1.32. This release sanitizes user interface logic. A crash in /LIST has been fixed. The user menu now automatically retrieves full names. Joining a channel from the list shows the topics as well. DCC did not work. This release can let the channel list be sorted. Improved search in channel and user input scrollback windows.
The source tarball is available in its official web page.
