The IRC bouncer project ZNC has a new stable release, version 0.078.
ZNC is an advanced bouncer that has module support, can encrypt all traffic between the servers and clients with SSL and also has a nice webinterface for easy configuration and administration.
Other features are detaching from the BNC with playback support, it has a partyline, can bounce DCCs too and you even can connect with multiple clients to one user, sharing the same username on IRC then.
The changelog is rather long and includes fixes, feature additions and a few internal changes.
The download and installation instructions can be found here.
