|05/09/05||3.32 will be released soon! I have been in the process of moving and haven't had much time to work on NexusChat, but I have cleaned up some code and fixed a few bugs. Hopefully now that I am settled I can start working on some new features.|
|01/27/05||SORRY! For some reason I didn't catch the bug that failed to compile on 3.3, so 3.31 has been released that fixes this problem.|

NexusChat is a single-threaded telnet chat server written in C. NexusChat, also known as nchat, has been around since 1998. It's look and feel is heavily influenced by the old dial-up chats and BBSs such as DDial, GTalk, and Minichat.
The development branch of NexusChat currently supports ANSI/VT100 colors, named channels (IRC-like), customizable user classes, many system and user options, and over 50 commands!
There are too many features to list here, so if you'd like to see a more comprehensive list, please take a look at the Features page
NexusChat is a nostalgic throwback to the days of the small community BBS. It is NOT a replacement for IRC or the like, and is meant to serve a small community of users.
The main goal of NexusChat is to be small and customizable, but provide a rich feature set. NexusChat does not need any external database software or obscure libraries. It should compile on any Unix system with the standard C library, and possibly a sockets library depending on the OS.
The second goal of NexusChat is to be portable across as many Unix platforms as possible. I don't support, nor intend to support any Windows platforms.
