The IRC smart filter... even smarter!

A new option has been added for the IRC smart filter: irc.look.smart_filter_join_unmask, with default value 30 (in minutes).

IRC plugin will automatically unmask a filtered join of a nick, if he spoke within N minutes after the join (N being the value of new option irc.look.smart_filter_join_unmask). Moreover, nick changes are tracked, and will be unmasked with the join.

Events triggering the unmask of join are: a message (can be CTCP), a notice or an update of topic.

Smart IRC join/part/quit message filter

A new smart filter for IRC join/part/quit message has been added. It is disabled by default (so you'll see all join/part/quit by default).

To enable it, use following commands:

/set irc.look.smart_filter on
/filter add irc_smart * irc_smart_filter *

You can setup delay: /set irc.look.smart_filter_delay 5

How does it work?

When a nick spoke on channel during past X minutes (where X is delay irc.look.smart_filter_delay), its join/part/quit will be displayed by default. Otherwise, if nick did not speak for a long time, all join/part/quit messages will be tagged with "irc_smart_filter". So you have to define a filter on this tag to hide join/part/quit from users that are not speaking on channel (see command above).
