Actually, this option has been asked for a few times, it will be added to the next Alpha Release (12.1).

So this option is in the Colors settings Window, under the Nick List section.

I would like to see this feature too.

The current feature of randomizing nick colors shows the nick colors in the nick list as random.. but it would be more helpful, if the nick colors were randomized in the channel, because it will help differentiate among different nicks, and will make the conversation easier to read, and will also be easier to follow messages from particular nicks. When there are many nicks talking at the same moment in a channel, this can really help.

Randomizing the nick colors in the userlist is not of much use.

Actually, it is supposed to change the colors in the channel, BUT it seems there is a bug.
It only changes the colors of the nicks showing in the nicklist (not the ones out of view)

So RC7 should have this fixed.
