Faerion IRC Server is a heavily modified clone of DalNet DreamForge.
The main features of this fork are, currently:
* Support for transparent, user-controlled charset translation (virtually) from anything to anything.
* Support for "persistent channels"
* Support for channel forwarding based on user address matching rules
* The server is currently available for most POSIX platforms (modern BSD and Linux variants) and Microsoft Windows.
The server retains the initial protocol compatibility, so it allows using various extension software without problems.
