Today we're pleased to announce the general release of sourcehut's
newest flagship service: chat.sr.ht.
chat.sr.ht is a hosted IRC bouncer service, which maintains a persistent
IRC connection for you and extends IRC with useful features like offline
messaging, log persistence, and various other improvements. In addition
to accepting connections from any third-party IRC client, chat.sr.ht
offers a ready-to-use web client.
Check out the blog post for the full details. Head over to chat.sr.ht
to try it in your web browser, or check out the docs for setting it
up with your IRC client of choice.
