The Change log in his own words...

I've just uploaded beta 5.. The server password support was broken with the new changes in beta 4 (released yesterday). I've attempted to fix it, but I really need people to test this for me because I dont know any password protected servers.

I'd appreciate it if people could test it in the following ways: 1. connect to server, 2. connect in new tab, and 3. see if it works with automatically connect on startup.

The password is masked out with * characters for better privacy, but the password is not encrypted in the servers.txt file unfortunately.

Thanks guys!

BTW, these beta archives are just executables + catalog files. You should really install the full WookieChat package from and then copy the beta exe's to the directory afterwards.

Changes in 2.4 so far:

* Automatic reconnection when disconnected from a server. Configurable
delay inbetween reconnection attempts, and maximum number of retrys

* Added an ignore function and a nice GUI for it. This ignore function
supports wildcards and can optionally ignore Text/CTCP/DCC

* You can now choose to automatically connect to servers upon startup, and
the server selection window can be hidden since it isnt required

* Channel names displayed in the listview can be joined by double clicking
on them

* Wookie no longer removes leading spaces from outgoing text. This is quite
useful when pasting programming source code in dev channels and you want
to keep the indentation for readability

* Added an edit button for Command Aliases, and improved the Alias display

* When transferring tiny files within 1 second, the entry in the dcc windows
are no longer stuck on "transferring" and are now able to be removed from
the list

* Outgoing DCC RESUME seems to be working better

* Previously, you couldnt copy text to the clipboard when text was being added
to the channel display. I made it pause while selecting text, but internal
functions were preventing text from being copied to the clipboard when you
let go of the mouse button. I have now corrected this. So its now possible
to copy text to the clipboard in a busy channel.
