My RC4 bug list / wish list
« on: August 09, 2012, 02:01:29 AM »
I've been using RC4 for a couple of days (THANK YOU for putting the channel bar back in), and i've come across a few bugs and a couple of features that would be quite useful. I don't know if these have been fixed in SVN since, I don't have the tools on-hand to compile from source to test.

Version: RC4, July 1

Bugs:
* Channel autojoin order is unpredictable, in IC7, the channels would open in the order they appear in the list, in IC9 the order varies each time, IC7 provided a few second pause between attempting to join each channel in this list, this is possibly why.
* (Possibly not an IC issue) user-list second level dropdown menus will open on second monitor instead of wrapping left on the current one - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/68272416/ic1.jpg
* Aliases such as "/voice /mode # +v $1" don't substitute current channel name for #. (If this isn't a bug, how do you achieve the same functionality)
* Server tree uses 'current tab' colour for all channels that aren't in 'join/part/message' state instead of the 'default' colour
* Bold does not appear to work
* If a message contains some kind of formatting then a 'cancel formatting' character, then wraps onto a newline at some point, the 'cancel formatting' character won't work - https://dl.dropbox.com/u/68272416/ic2.jpg (I've marked the location of the formatting characters, with coloured dots, the key is in the right panel)
* Scroll wheel causes nick list to scroll even if it shouldn't be scrolling
* When a message arrives, chat window will scroll to bottom sometimes when it was scrolled part way up before the message

Wishlist:
* Special colour for hyperlinks
* The ability to change the above requested special colour for hyperlinks
* Option to open log folder directly to a particular channel's logs added back in on channel tabs context menu

The bold issue is known, and bold characters currently do not work and are just removed.
Not sure about the popup menu issue/2nd monitor, hard to test since I do not have a second monitor. But will see what I can do, if it is a fixable error.

And thank you for the rest, will do what I can to fix.

Also:
* Text highlighting behaves strangely around links, if you start at the beginning of the line and move across until you reach a link, the highlighting will stop 1 character before the space before the link ( even if the link doesn't immediately follow the space) until you pass the end of the link or a newline (even if the link continues on the newline) at which point it behaves normally.

If the no-partial-link-highlighting is an intended feature, the behaviour stopping after a newline is a bug, and either way the highlighting stopping too early is also a bug.

* Text highlighting sometimes nudges characters on the line around by 1-2px - most visible while moving he mouse

The highlighting code is a problem and is on the ToDo list to rewrite.

Noticed one more over the last couple of days:
* If pressing up to scroll back through previous sent messages, any message in progress is not returned to the endit after scrolling back to the end of the list

* Emoticon triggers in URLs (e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Dance) will render correctly in client but open wrongly when clicked (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template006ance).

It is not supposed to do that. And I have tested it, and I does not do that.

My apologies I mistakenly thought the first item was how IC7 behaved, but the link issue definitely occurs for me on both 4 and 4.1 although only with emoticons switched on.

Well, I have tested it in many ways, and I do not see it occuring, have not seen it for some time.
