Please report any issues and feedback via IRC or email, comments are not monitored and cannot be addressed.

Known Issues:

* Any UI glitches can usually be resolved by pressing back, and then opening the qicr running notification
* Nick list is often out of date
* Physical keyboard input is forcibly sent to the input-line. Other text inputs need to be filled in using the soft keyboard for now. (e.g. add/edit server)
* Sometimes a channel stops sending/receiving output (please help in reproducing/diagnosing) -- possibly server disconnects without actually being reflected in UI
* Screenshots depict appearance on ICS and HC, older versions of android appear differently.
* No way to cancel connecting (can change the icon to say disconnect, but it doesn't stop)
* Rotating the device while on the add server dialog will clear the dialog and lose information that has not been saved
* Server Add/Edit dialog does not render well when switching day/night modes
* New message notification often opens up into the wrong channel tab

* Lag timer (periodically ping self to determine connection lag; on servers tab)
* Optionally show channel list in a spinner/drop-down, better UX when dealing with a large number of channels
* CTCP commands, including /ping
* SSL support
* BNC support (znc tested)
* Raw command support (/raw)
* Multiple-servers single-view
* Swipe and tab between channels
* Nick completion = search button (multi-tap capable)
* Full Honeycomb and ICS (phone and tablet) optimization
* Full external keyboard support on Android 3.0+ (ALT-1 through ALT-0 and ALT-Q through ALT-P = Tabs 1 through 20; CTRL-TAB and CTRL-SHIFT-TAB = forward and back tabs)
* /help for a list of implemented commands
* Speech recognition support, press the button and end a sentence with "over" to automatically send. Say "clear line" to erase the text area.
* New message notifications
* Monospaced font (DejaVuSansMono for pre-ICS) for proper text alignment.

Future features:
* Last read line marker
* Zebra-striping messages
* Coloring nicks (nick-hash % 8 or something)
* Font size customization
* Notification customization (ringtone and led color)
* Command aliases
* Configurable command char (default /)
* SASL support (depending on demand)
* Scripting support (javascript; depending on demand)
* More /commands (/ping, /whois, /topic, /kick, /mode, etc.)
* irc:// URL protocol support (depending on demand)
* Implement support
* IRC logs (do people really want this? 5-star show of hands ;-))
* Channel owner and super-op flags (for rizon, & and ~)
* DCC support, depending on demand

* Written in Scala, not Java
