Quassel IRC is released!


It is finally here - quassel-0.2.0-alpha1, Quassel’s long-awaited first public release! This is still an alpha version, so it still has some quirks, and it still lacks some features that may or may not be important for you. That said, we (the devs) have been using it as our main client for weeks now, and we are fairly happy with it, so it can’t hurt to give it a try! Only this release sets your computer on fire, eats your dog and is probably highly addictive. If you happen to be at FOSDEM r...

Quassel On The Road!


I’m going to FOSDEM, the Free and Open Source Software Developers’ European Meeting! Yep, I’ll be there, probably partying with the Gentoo or Amarok people. We also plan to finally release Quassel to the public on FOSDEM. So if you like to learn more about Quassel or even see it in action, FOSDEM is your chance :) Preparing for the the Beer Event, ~ Sputnick

Home Stretch


Well, EgS speaking of 50 commits in January until the 17th. Turned out to be 125 commits until the end of the month, and another 55 commits in the eight days of February already… development speed is increasing, and we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel (and it’s not a train coming at us). We are fighting some stability issues and we still need to fix a couple of things, but we are now very confident that we can release Quassel within the month! So what does being on the Home Str...

My First Blog Post


This is not only my first post on Quassel IRC but my very first blog post at all. I have to say that I’m pretty excited about what’s happening in the last few weeks. The improvements on Quassel have been enormous. There’ve been already more than 50 commits this month. Having just checked in Revision 353 and waiting for Sput’s next big commit (which hopefully doesn’t break anything - I’m always scared if someone says: dude I’m just reorganizing the multithreading in the core…), I’m having som...

Happy New Year - And Resolutions!


2007 has come and gone, and now it is 2008. Last year has seen a lot of improvements in and around Quassel IRC, and we are now very close to the first releaseable version. In fact, we, the developers and some early testers/helpers/fans are running Quassel Cores on our servers to stress-test (and of course enjoy) them! We now mainly lack some features in the GUI and some improvements in internal structures to be able to release Quassel to the public. And this is my resolution for 2008: Get Qua...
