Nick completer in WeeChat 2.4 no longer add spaces by default

With the beginning of WeeChat 2.4 (released 2019-02-17) a space is no longer automatically added when you complete a nick at the beginning of command line.

This leaves you with Hund:_ and not Hund: _. If you want the old behaviour back like me, the solution is simple. You just need to change one simple setting:

/set weechat.completion.nick_completer ": "

Don’t forge to save the changes with /save.

I don't have a commenting system simply because I haven't found a solution that I like. If you want to leave any feedback and/or have any questions feel free to contact me either via e-mail, the fediverse, by XMPP or by IRC (I'm Hund at freenode.net).
