A new plugin called "exec" has been added, with command
/exec can execute external commands and display output in WeeChat.
It is similar to
/shell (script shell.py), with major improvements:
- run many commands at once,
- send signals to commands,
- send data on stdin of a command,
- line numbers in output,
- ANSI color support,
- command timeout.
Other features coming soon: pipe output to WeeChat command or hsignal (to use in a trigger).
