v0.3.7-rc2, 2012-02-13
Version 0.3.7 (under dev!)
* option `scroll_unread` has been moved from command `/input` to `/window`,
therefore default command of key alt-u has been updated. To bind key with new
default value:
** `/key bind meta-u /window scroll_unread`
* extented regex is used in filters and irc ignore, so some chars that
needed escape in past do not need any more (for example `[0-9]\+` becomes
`[0-9]+`), filters and ignore have to be manually fixed
* option 'weechat.look.highlight_regex' becomes case insensitive by default,
to make it case sensitive, use "(?-i)" at beginning of string, for example:
* option 'weechat.history.max_lines' has been renamed to
Version 0.3.6 (2011-10-22)
Important release notes:
* bold is not used any more for basic colors (used only if terminal has less
than 16 colors), a new option has been added to force bold if needed:
* option 'weechat.look.hline_char' has been renamed to
Version 0.3.5 (2011-05-15)
Important release notes:
* if you have some colors defined in section "palette" with version 0.3.4, you
should remove all colors defined, and add new aliases (it's not needed any
more to add colors before using them)
* colors for nick prefixes (char for op, voice, ..) are defined in a single
option 'irc.color.nick_prefixes', therefore following options will be lost:
'irc.color.nick_prefix_op', 'irc.color.nick_prefix_halfop',
'irc.color.nick_prefix_voice', 'irc.color.nick_prefix_user'
* count of messages have been added to hotlist by default, if you want to come
back to old behaviour, do that:
** `/set weechat.look.hotlist_count_max 0`
** `/set weechat.look.hotlist_buffer_separator ","`
* when you are away, all buffers are now added to hotlist by default (even if
they are displayed in a window), if you want to come back to old behaviour, do
** `/set weechat.look.hotlist_add_buffer_if_away off`
* new keys were added, use command `/key missing` to add them or `/key listdiff`
to see differences between your current keys and WeeChat default keys
Version 0.3.4 (2011-01-16)
Important release notes:
* if you are using `/upgrade` from a previous release:
** some nick prefixes can be wrong, so it is recommended to do `/allchan names`
** nick colors are defined with a new option 'weechat.color.chat_nick_colors',
therefore old options 'weechat.color.chat_nick_color1..10' will be lost when
** nick colors in messages displayed will be wrong if you changed some nick colors
(old default colors will be used)
* some IRC options have been renamed, before upgrading to this version, note
value for old options, and set them again with new name:
** options moved from 'network' section to servers (with global value, and server
value, like other server options):
*** '' moved to 'irc.server_default.connection_timeout'
*** '' moved to 'irc.server_default.anti_flood_prio_high'
*** '' moved to 'irc.server_default.anti_flood_prio_low'
*** '' moved to 'irc.server_default.away_check'
*** '' moved to 'irc.server_default.away_check_max_nicks'
*** '' moved to 'irc.server_default.default_msg_part'
*** '' moved to 'irc.server_default.default_msg_quit'
** other IRC options renamed:
*** 'irc.look.open_channel_near_server' moved to 'irc.look.new_channel_position'
(old option was boolean, new is integer with value as string)
*** 'irc.look.open_pv_near_server' moved to 'irc.look.new_pv_position'
(old option was boolean, new is integer with value as string)
Version 0.3.3 (2010-08-07)
Important release notes:
* if you are using `/upgrade` from a previous release, then you must reconnect
to IRC servers in order to use new command /wallchops.
* option '' is now in milliseconds, you should set new
value: your current value multiplied by 1000 (new default value is 500).
Version 0.3.2 (2010-04-18)
If you are using `/upgrade` from a previous release, then you must execute this
command on all IRC servers/channels/private buffers and xfer DCC chats (not
needed on WeeChat core buffer or buffers from other plugins/scripts): +
`/buffer set highlight_words $nick`

All users of version 0.2.2 should upgrade to this version.
Version 0.3.1 (2010-01-23)
IRC commands /ame and /amsg are now aliases, if you are upgrading from version
0.3.0, you must create aliases with following commands: +
`/alias aaway allserv /away` +
`/alias ame allchan /me` +
`/alias amsg allchan /amsg *` +
`/alias anick allserv /nick`
Version 0.3.0 (2009-09-06)

For more information about this version, please read file 'UPGRADE_0.3'.
Version (2009-06-13)
This version fixes gnutls detection.
Version (2009-04-18)

Version 0.2.6 (2007-09-06)
No release note.
Version 0.2.5 (2007-06-07)
No release note.
Version 0.2.4 (2007-03-29)
No release note.
Version 0.2.3 (2007-01-10)

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
** 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
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.
