* View Web Pages In Real Time -- if a session leaders wants to show learners a website, the site can be shown automatically in the in-built web browser in Lernid.

* Available In Your Language -- Lernid is available in 31 languages and growing!

* Session Reminders -- ten minutes before a session and when a session is starting a handy little notification bubble will pop up to remind you of the session.

The new 0.6 release has had a tonne of bug fixes and is by far the most stable release yet. It also includes these new features:

  • New icon – awesome new icon, and looks smooth as silk in docky too.
  • Nick completion – just like a normal IRC client, type in the first few letters of the nickname, hit tab and boom! there is the nick!
  • Option for show time in class and chatroom – want to see the times? Simple.
  • Possibility for pausing automatic browser updating – don’t like that browser updates? Sorted.
  • NickServ authentication – now you can use your nickserv password when connecting.
  • Question button – want to ask a question in the right format? Click the Question button and then type in your question. Job done.
  • Gwibber support (tweet the ongoing session) – click the Event menu when a session is running and Tweet current session to share your attendance with Twitter/identi.ca/Facebook/FreindFeed etc (only works on Lucid).
