WeeChat: News about development ()

Next WeeChat version (codename "revolution") is under development.
Large part of code was rewritten, it's now faster, easier, and more extensible.
List of new features and screenshots can be found on wiki page (see link below).

Today there's no planed release date, some features are still missing, and there's lot of work until a stable version.

We need help, like beta testers, to test this version. You can look at wiki page for more info.

To be continued in some months for other news…

WeeChat: Bugs with WeeChat 0.2.2 ()

Bugs have been detected with WeeChat 0.2.2: for servers using charsets like KOI8-R. When nicks are encoded with cyrillic chars, WeeChat doesn't decode them, and display and behaviour with server are buggy.

If you use KOI8-R (or charsets like this one), we recommend you to use version 0.2.1 or development version.
If you use only UTF-8 or ISO charsets, there's no problem with version 0.2.2.

These problems are fixed in development version.
A new version will be available soon, it will fix all problems.
