#753 closed update (fixed)

The epic irc client is old and doesn't suppport SSL

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

The current version of epic is 1.0.1 was released in Oct 2001. Much work has been done since then but it is all taged as alpha. (IMHO) The major thing missing from 1.0.1 is SSL. This has been included since 1.1.3. I am currently running 1.1.12 without problem. I think it would be benifical to either have 2 versions of epic in dports, or update epic to a slightly more recent version, possibly recommended by the epic author. I can do more research on this if required.

I don't use epic myself, maybe eric (the maintainer) or waqar (he is interested in epic) can comment on this?

I talked to eric a few minutes ago, and he'd like to keep the 1.0.1 version around, but suggested a devel variant, which I'm in the process of adding.
