XChat 2.8.7a for Windows Released

Version 2.8.7 released the 20th of last month has been superseded with 2.8.7a Zed announced on the XChat homepage.

This new version is mainly a bugfix release, as the changelog shows.

The XChat Windows release is shareware. Freeware versions are still being released from the otherwise still available opensource code. One such release is from Silverex but is an older release, 2.8.4.

    I just love how the windows src isn’t available. If you compile the src from the website into windows, you get a diff version.

    Silverex’s version is 2.8.4 because that’s what is available in the src. Obviously xChat is violating the GPL license agreement since no where in the 2.8.4 src does it change the win32 version to 2.8.7a.
