Version     : 2.8.4
Release     : 11.fc8

Summary     : A popular and easy to use graphical IRC (chat) client
Description :
X-Chat is an easy to use graphical IRC chat client for the X Window System.
It allows you to join multiple IRC channels (chat rooms) at the same time,
talk publicly, private one-on-one conversations etc. Even file transfers
are possible.

This includes the plugins to run the Perl and Python scripts.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

scrollback buffer handling.    Additionally, XChat has been fixed only to use
X11 MIT-SHM  pixmaps when available at runtime.

- xchat-2.8.4-shm-pixmaps.patch: MIT-SHM pixmaps are optional, and when
