Happy birthday WeeChat, 15 years!
On June 26th 2003, my search for a free IRC client with text interface, builtin nicklist and extensible with scripts was unsuccessful, so I (@flashcode) decided to write my own client from scratch. Starting point of a long and fun adventure!

The Python 3 porting party for WeeChat scripts started! There are 173 scripts to port to Python 3 (for now compatibility with Python 2.7 must be preserved). You can help us to reach the goal of 100% Python3-compatible scripts at the beginning of 2020!

weechat.org/scripts/python3/

New design for weechat.org!

The site is now responsive, using Bootstrap.

Hope you enjoy the new site!

The ubuntu “cosmic” (18.10) has been added in repositories.
The development version of WeeChat is now available for cosmic (i386/amd64 only), and will be built every night.

All repositories are here: weechat.org/download/debian/

WeeChat is now accepting donations via @Liberapay. This is the preferred way to help and support the project, over Paypal which has higher fees. liberapay.com/weechat

WeeChat 2.0.1 released! This is a bug fix and maintenance release.

Since today, the Debian packaging has changed in weechat.org Debian/Ubuntu/Raspbian repositories: the scripting plugins are split into multiple packages, so that Perl, Python, Ruby, … can be installed separately.

Important: if you are using the WeeChat development packages from weechat.org, you will have to install manually the scripting packages.

@fabricedesre Some news after my suggestions yesterday on IRC? Is the high CPU caused by WeeChat core, IRC plugin, something else?

@fabricedesre You could join us on (freenode) for more help if needed (or -fr for French).

@fabricedesre If you're using 1.8, try 1.9-dev, a bug with buflist and high CPU usage has been fixed. Otherwise, try to unload some scripts (they can use CPU).
