Version 0.2.3 (2007-01-10)

This version fixes several major bugs of version 0.2.2.

All users of version 0.2.2 should upgrade to this version.

Version 0.2.2 (2007-01-06)

Important release notes:

  • new charset plugin:

    • for users of any previous version, all your charset settings in weechat.rc will be LOST! You should save your weechat.rc to keep your values and set them again with new charset plugin.

    • for ISO users: history of channels may be without accents (after /upgrade), this is not recoverable, but this is not a bug. All new messages should be ok.

    • be careful, now default encode is UTF-8 for all channels (before it was terminal charset). If you still want to send messages as ISO-8859-1, you should send either global encode or server specific encode to ISO-8859-1:

      • for global encode: /setp = "ISO-8859-1"

      • for server encode (on server buffer): /charset encode ISO-8859-1

  • new keys for topic scroll:

    • new keys for scrolling topic: F9/F10

    • key F10 was used for infobar_clear in previous WeeChat versions, you have to manually rebind this key (except for new WeeChat users):

      • /key <press alt-k then F10> scroll_topic_right (which gives something like: /key meta2-21~ scroll_topic_right).

Version 0.2.1 (2006-10-01)

No release note.

Version 0.2.0 (2006-08-19)

Important release notes:

  • if you upgraded with /upgrade in WeeChat, you should /disconnect and then /reconnect on each server, to display properly channel/user modes.

  • if you’re using plugins, you should remove some old plugins libraries in WeeChat system library directory (commonly /usr/local/lib/weechat/plugins): remove lib* files (like libperl.*, libpython.*, ..) and keep only new libraries (perl.*, python.*, ..).

Version 0.1.9 (2006-05-25)

Important release notes:

  • please close all DCC chat buffers before using /upgrade command, otherwise you may experience problems with DCC chats.

  • some changes in script API: now timer handlers functions takes exactly 0 (zero) argument (in version 0.1.8, two arguments were mandatory but not used: server and args).

Version 0.1.8 (2006-03-18)

Important release notes:

  • it is recommended for users of version 0.1.7 (or any older), to replace values in setup file (~/.weechat/weechat.rc):

    • option: log_path: replace ~/.weechat/logs by %h/logs

    • option: plugins_path: replace /.weechat/plugins by %h/plugins
      %h is replaced by WeeChat home (default: /.weechat, may be overriden by new command line arg --dir).

  • after installing 0.1.8 (or with /upgrade), issue both commands (if you didn’t redefine these keys (alt-home/end):

    • /key unbind meta-meta2-1~

    • /key unbind meta-meta2-4~

    • then launch again WeeChat (or issue /upgrade).

  • Keys alt-home/end were used for nicklist scroll, they’re now replaced by alt-F11/F12.

Version 0.1.7 (2006-01-14)

Important release notes:

  • Ruby script plugin has been added but is experimental in this release. You’re warned!

  • /away command was changed to be RFC 2812 compliant. Now argument is required to set away, and no argument means remove away ("back"). Option irc_default_msg_away has been removed.

Version 0.1.6 (2005-11-11)

Important release notes:

  • incompatibility with some old scripts: now all handlers have to return a code for completion, and to do some actions about message to ignore (please look at documentation for detail).

  • on OpenBSD, the new option plugins_extension should be set to .so.0.0 since the plugins names are ending by .so.0.0 and not .so.

  • with new and full UTF-8 support, the option look_charset_internal should be set to blank for most cases. Forces it only if your locale is not properly detected by WeeChat (you can set UTF-8 or ISO-8859-15 for example, depending on your locale). WeeChat is looking for UTF-8 in your locale name at startup.
