IceChat 9 RC3 and the Channel Bar
« on: February 29, 2012, 04:45:13 PM »
So I have received a lot of back lash for removing the Channel Bar from RC3.

From a development point of view, the Channel Bar was causing me a lot of headaches, there where a lot of bugs in it, that I just had no luck in fixing. As I personally had no use for it, I removed it.

Well, along comes the IceChat community, and bites me in the behind for removing it. Understandable.

What I had planned on doing though, was the ability to create a plugin that creates a new Channel bar, thus allowing people to customize it to their hearts content.

As this issue seems to be bothering a lot of users,I will work on creating this plugin, and get the framework made up for it, before pushing on with other changes and additions that I want to still do. This should at least help alleviate some of the anger towards the project for removing such a vital component, w/o any kind of a replacement.

Due to popular demand, the Channel bar will return for RC4.

In fact, it is added back in with the code release of RC 3.20.
The only main change, because of some problems, is the tabs are not draggable, but that will return as well.
