2010-08-01: KVIrc 4.0.2 released

Here we go again: 4.0.2 is ready.

This is mainly a bugfix release. 4.0.0 went public after a very long delay and even if we have tested it thoroughly some problems still managed to escape our attention. There are fixes for several minor annoyances and the very important patch for a security issue related to DCC handshakes (secunia advisory SA40727).

Configuration from existing 4.0.0 installations will be completly preserved and everyone is encouraged to upgrade.

As usual, the bugs for this release should be reported by using the bugtrack system available at

The sources are available here. Binaries for various platforms will be available in the download section in the next days and I'm sure that you'll be able to find kvirc 4.0.2 in your favorite distribution repository very soon.

Have fun :)
