About new xchat


Just a quick silly question :
I am an old school user of xchat, using it since several years.
The "new" version is damn cute but it is missing a very important thing to me :
the "show new shell tab" option that was allowing me to run a shell inside a xchat tab in 1.X version.
But it seems that this option vanished since xchat 2.0.

Anyone know if it is possible to have it in xchat 2.0?

yah i noticed that too ...
i mean, unless i am just as blind as you (hehe), i am going to have to settle with that fact that it appears that this feature was removed ...
cause all i see now is :
new server tab
new channel tab
new server window
new channel window

unless you can figure a way to go to "Server -> Edit this Menu"
and make an entry in there somehow
other than that i think its gone ...

well well well... I found a stupid tricks to show my logs but that's really not as good as the shell tab.
Just if someone wonder, you can execute an apps inside xchat typing "/exec [prog_name].
Now the problem is that you can't send input to it, so if you start a shell, you won't be able to type command in it... no big deal but at least I can show up my log file.
