This release adds a server send queue with time interval for automated messages sent by pounce such as NAMES and AWAY. This addresses the problem of pounce getting itself killed with "excess flood" by the IRC server when it tries to send NAMES for too many channels when a client connects. The -N / no-names option is no longer necessary to prevent this. The interval can be configured with -Q / queue-interval. This release also enables TCP keepalive with an idle time of 15 minutes. Since pounce swallows PING messages from the IRC server, client connections can remain idle for quite some time on quiet networks. Enabling keepalives may prevent them from otherwise being dropped. The configure script is no longer used on FreeBSD, and rc scripts are now templated with PREFIX. When upgrading, config.mk should be removed on FreeBSD and ./configure should be re-run elsewhere.
