Highlight with regex in specific buffers

A local variable "highlight_regex" has been added in buffers.

It is recommended to use script buffer_autoset.py to set it, so that it's saved and set at any time when buffer is created.

However, it's still possible to set it manually (for testing) with command: /buffer set highlight_regex XXX.

For example, to highlight all messages on server freenode, channel #test:

/autosetbuffer add irc.freenode.#test highlight_regex .*

Disable highlights from some nicks

It is now possible to disable highlights from some nicks, per buffer, or per group of buffers (like IRC servers).

A new buffer property "no_highlight_nicks" has been added. It can be set easily with script buffer_autoset.py, see /help autosetbuffer for example.

If you have already opened buffer, then script option will not apply immediately to buffers. Then you can use /buffer command to manually set this property on a buffer, for example, to disable highlights from "joe" and "mike" on current buffer:

/buffer set no_highlight_nicks_add joe,mike

Update on 2010-12-02: this option has been replaced by "hotlist_max_level_nicks", see Max hotlist level for some nicks.

Script hlpvitem.py

A new script hlpvitem.py is now available. It displays item in a bar (like status) with highlight or private message, from an hidden buffer. So you will see content of message before switching to that buffer.

You must add item in a bar, like status, with this command:

/set weechat.bar.status.items

then press "Tab" and complete string by adding for example (without quotes): ",[hlpv]"
