The standalone binaries for DuckClient 5.8 have been released in the downloads directory
. The ChromeOS version will be available from the Chrome Web Store as soon as Google approves it.
v5.8 fixes a bug in UTF-8 decoding that caused incorrect characters to appear when a multibyte character was split between two network packets. There's also a speculative fix for a similar issue with ANSI escape sequences, and a fix for a bug that caused the Preferences window to not open the first time it was clicked.
