Smuxi IRC Client Gets Major Update with Twitter OAuth Support

Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, flexible, user-friendly and cross-platform IRC client for sophisticated users, targeting the GNOME desktop.

From the Developer's website:
Development of Smuxi started in 2004 making an IRC client that fits the needs I could not satisfy with irssi. I was using irssi over 4 years and it's the best the IRC client I have used so far. Most annoying was that it didn't integrate at all into my desktop experience (such as mouse / clipboard / theming / highlight handling). Thus irssi inspired lots of features and commands seen in Smuxi. Smuxi pioneered the separated engine / frontend concept inside a single graphical client application and has been the focus of development since ever then.

  • All the basic IRC client features like support for multiple networks, filters, nicknames, keyboard shortcuts, auto-connect, clickable urls, theming, channel list, search etc.
  • Support for Twitter
  • Multiple Language Support
