Feature requests

First of all I want to say that Floe is a great client and I'm going to use it instead of KVIrc from now on.

And now feature requests (in order of importance):

  1. Allow setting nicks for each server independently - this is particularly useful when Floe is used with bouncers such as ZNC (it requires a creation of separate user for each network)
  2. Don't cut too long messages, break them into shorter separate messages and send with a small delay instead.
  3. Show server name in server tab instead of "Server" and "Internet"
  4. Expand input if multiple lines are pasted, send as is on ctrl+enter or merge into single line and send on alt+enter (KVIrc behavior)
  5. A way to easily backup/restore color scheme
  6. Auto size for user list with a max width config
  7. Max width config for nicks in tabular view
  8. Tree view for servers/channels

Good ideas; I'll look into these.

Just a note on #3, on most servers it should change the tab label to be the name of the IRC network. It's a little hacky as it relies on the "welcome" message to determine the name. If the server formats that message differently, then it may not pick up the correct name. I'll see what I can do to make this more robust.

You can use text from description input in server config as fallback if network name doesn't get parsed properly.
