I just uploaded release 0.4. Most new things have been made by contributors, so I want to thank all of them :-) Matías Aguirre made a cool hash-priority queue for timers.

Feel free to try out IPChat from the CVS. There is not much documentation yet, but you can use embedded help (/help, /help add, ...). The program is very easy to use! Let us know if it works :-)
