I can’t post links. But HexChat announced that this is going to be the final release on their news page.
This will be the last release I make of HexChat. The project has largely been unmaintained for years now and nobody else stepped up to do that work.
What will it be replaced with?
I recommend https://nheko-reborn.github.io/ Matrix client. Closest thing to IRC UI.
No replacement for an IRC client planned for now. IRC doesn’t seem to be important enough anymore to warrant a default installed IRC client.
Off-topic here. Needs to be discussed in the appropriate tickets.
Will it also be removed from whonix.org?
