--- Description ---

Konversation is a user-friendly Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client
for KDE.

--- Release Notes ---

Konversation 1.2 is the first release of Konversation for the
KDE 4 application platform and desktop environment. In add-
ition to preserving the full functionality of the KDE 3 ver-
sion, this release offers a significant amount of new features
and improvements to the user interface, performance, memory
usage, energy efficiency, correctness and stability. Sum to-
tal, the changelog of all development releases since Konver-
sation 1.1 and of this final release combined once again make
for the longest changelog in Konversation's release history.

Some of the highlights compared to Konversation 1.1 include
support for SOCKS v5 and HTTP proxies, a redesigned DCC file
transfer user interface (and much improved DCC code under the
hood with several new features, such as support for IPv6 and
DCC REJECT), support for UPnP for NAT traversal, rewritten and
much improved support for Blowfish encryption (now supporting
DH1080 key exchange, for example), a significantly better per-
forming channel list, a rewrite of the channel nickname lists
for better performance and improved battery-friendlyness, a
new channel join invitation user interface, an improved auto-
replace feature, expanded media player support and many impro-
vements to the IRC protocol implementation.
