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…
