IRC client with possible SL/WPF ports. Utilizes native tcp sockets until the communication layer from MS solidifies. Basically put, this project would not exist without the work of some wp7 hackers. Pip pip old boys.
Welcome to IRC, circa 1994 for your Windows Phone 7 device!
New new direction
I'll be honest like I said in the last update (look in the update log link below). This project broke me, bad, and I can trace it all back to the core IRC code which doesn't support DCC, actions, bold, color codes, and a whole slew of pretty much uselessness. I thought about scrapping the project, focusing on Mango only and hoping that perhaps an ad version might help me recoup some time and mental anguish. I say most of that jokingly of course but I poured way longer than I realized into this with some of the checkins taking days of patch queue time. This wouldn't have been a "but I made it in 4 days!" success story by any means.
Here is where things will go instead:
- I'll focus primarily on Mango, ditch the core .NET code and make a Silverlight client inspired by http://clindhartsen.deviantart.com/art/MetroIRC-UI-Elements-175875453.
- I'll be using IrcDotNet for the core library in all code bases. It feels more current than smartirc4net, but depending on 0.4.x of anything is a crap-shoot.
- v.Current will try to have 1:1 UI and behavior and I'll give IrcDotNet a week to see if I can shoehorn the Homebrew sockets implementation into it. I've done the easy parts so I don't want to give up just yet but the async operations are the hardest part.
- If there are any objections, speak up now.
