NuGet packages released

Written for IRC.NET by Alexander Regueiro on 2011-07-02

NuGet <http://nuget.org/> has recently emerged onto the .NET scene as the official (Microsoft-backed) package manager system for .NET libraries. Hence, I've made the decision that all future releases of IRC.NET should be available as NuGet packages. The project itself does not use NuGet for dependency management, though this will be considered for the future.

You can view the NuGet package for the IRC.NET library over at <http://nuget.org/List/Packages/IrcDotNet>, as well as the Sample package over at <http://nuget.org/List/Packages/IrcDotNet.Sample>. The 0.4.1 releases have just been made, so head over to get them now!

IRC.NET v0.1.1 Released

Written for IRC.NET by Alexander Regueiro on 2010-02-03

Version 0.1.1 of the IRC.NET library has been released, and may now be considered quite stable and complete with respect to core functionality. Basic XML documentation is largely complete, which along with the unit tests should help anyone get familiar with the library. The upcoming 0.2 release, which is not too far off, will include a documented sample project.
