Rhapsody IRC 0.25b released

Rhapsody is yet another text-based IRC client for Unix. Multi-server support is added in the new version, making it a real alternative to irssi and bitchx.

IRC, or Internet Relay Chat, is a great way to waste hours and hours writing absolutely useless blabber with random strangers. The chat network can also be used to acquire information and files.

Rhapsody is made for the text console, so it can be used in the full screen window manager screen. It has a menu which gives you easy access to the programs very limited number of features. It only has the most basic IRC features, DCC file transfer support and that is it. Rhapsody is not Ipv6 ready and it lacks about 95% of the features available in irssi and bitchx.
