IRC.NET is a complete IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client library for the .NET Framework 4.0 and Silverlight 4.0. It aims to provide a complete and efficient implementation of the protocol as described in RFCs 1459 and 2812, as well as de-facto modern features of the protocol.

This project was formerly hosted on Launchpad.


The .NET Framework version of the library is also intended to compile and run under Mono 2.6 and later.

The Silverlight version of the library is not guaranteed to compile or run on the Moonlight framework, though it may be officially supported in the future.
