Pocket IRC on Windows Mobile 5

Pocket IRC is my IRC client for Pocket PC and Windows Mobile devices.  Version 1.3 has been released removing registration requirements and is now available for free, previously $14.95 USD.

This release doesn’t add a lot of new functionality, but it had significant re-factoring internally a couple of years ago, and not a whole lot of testing since then, so fingers crossed.

The free release is a stepping stone to open sourcing the code.  I haven’t decided yet where or how I’ll be releasing the source, so in the meantime I figured I might as well make it free.  Likely it will be a public read-only SVN repository, maybe on Google Code, and probably under an MIT or similar license.
