Bug Fix Advisory irssi bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:1171-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-08-15
Last updated on: 2013-02-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated irssi packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

Irssi is a modular IRC client with Perl scripting. Only the text-mode front end
is currently supported.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, when the user attempted to use the "/unload" command to
unload a static module, Irssi incorrectly marked this module as unavailable,
rendering the user unable to load this module again without restarting the
client. This update adapts the underlying source code to ensure that only
dynamic modules can be unloaded. (BZ#639258)

* The previous version of the irssi(1) manual page documented "--usage" as a
valid command line option. This was incorrect, because Irssi no longer supports
this option and an attempt to use it causes it to fail with an error. With this
update, the manual page has been corrected and no longer documents unsupported
command line options. (BZ#845047)

All users of irssi are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
these bugs.
