The plugin lost its long time compatibility with the recent removal of the remapping of <1.7 API methods (or something). Unlike other IRC plugins where a single bot is used to relay messages, this one creates one IRC user per in-game player, making it possible to see who is in game from the IRC channel list. It is very handy. It is in my opinion the best IRC plugin for this reason alone. It also does not require a server link like BukkitIRCd does (which is also out of date) which can be unsafe. The plugin also has a bug that causes messages to be sometimes duplicated. Here is the link to the plugin : http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/irctransport/ Here is the link to the github : https://github.com/hef/IRCTransport Help will be much appreciated.
