@lukaso666 : it can sometimes take some time to clear all lines in all buffers, especially if you have a high number of buffers and a slow CPU. Can you reproduce the issue with only a few buffers, and maybe no scripts loaded (scripts can freeze weechat as well)? If you can reproduce, please file an issue on GitHub, thanks!

WeeChat now supports XDG directories, used by default on first startup.

Apologies for the 600+ users still on @ freenode, the channel has been "stolen" by the new hostile admins, after 18 years of presence. "Thank you for using freenode" they say…
You are welcome as soon as possible on irc.libera.chat!
