An irc string comparison will be implemented in version 0.3.7.

Not really, because buffer name is managed by core (and searching with case insensitive option may be useful for other plugins than irc).

I'm guessing my bugreport #34318 about case sensitive channelnames upon JOIN is related to this.

String comparison for IRC nicks should be case insensitive and take care about CASEMAPPING received in ISUPPORT message of server.


Problem reported by Marenz on #weechat: when using psyced.org, the join received have nick with different case and then WeeChat never opens buffer for channel joined.
