WeeChat 0.0.1 released! ()

WeeChat, the fast, light and extensible IRC client, is released for the first time, version 0.0.1.
CVS is opened on Savannah page.
Warning, this is still Alpha version, all IRC commands are not yet developed and lot of work is to be done.
In this version, there is:
- Curses front-end (other front-end are not yet developed),
- almost all IRC commands from RFC1459,
- multi-servers,
- configuration file,
- completion, commands history,
- etc.
(see ChangeLog and TODO files)

Note to people who wants to help us:
- we're looking for translations for WeeChat and documentation (not written today), for example german, spanish, italian, etc.
- we're looking too for people which knows other OS (like *BSD, GNU/Hurd, etc.) to port WeeChat.

All suggestions and bug reports are welcome, look at WeeChat support page for contacting us.
