This is the most recent version of the IRC protocol. We are accepting errata updates for this specification. Client and server implementations of IRCv3.2 are still under development. The IRCv3.2 protocol will replace IRCv3.1 as the stable release as an increasing amount of software is compliant with it.

Like the previous release, the current specifications are a series of changes from pre-existing protocols, in this case RFC1459 and 3.1. We plan to release a unified specification draft based on the 3.2 protocol.
