It's looking like the DCC protocol is going to be updated & known as DCC2. check out the RFC.

It's all well and good updating the DCC protocol - but a lot of people are wondering why the actual IRC protocol is not getting the same treatment. There are a whole host of evident flaws and problems with the IRC protocol that should be ironed out. In fact, these improvements would make a lot of different in plenty of ways.

Some people think IRC is dead or is going that way. I don't agree with that, just take a look at some of the big networks - as popular as ever.

With all the IM options currently available, IRC still manages to stay around and I think it'll always be around - but things do need to move forward.

It's just a case of setting your priorities out correctly - I'd say: IRC protcol revamp, then DCC!
