New features include links to the FAQ in connection errors, inline "cancel" option when connecting, accepting motif URLs which don't end in ".css", hiding DCC file transfers and high visibility of the F6 focus change.

ChatZilla 0.9.72 fixes channel join errors appearing on the wrong view, missing information in the DCC chat header, and adds the away options menu to the main menu, as well as supressing the quit confirmation when using the /quit command or the menu.
