Presenting nandBot 2

April 30, 2005

Version CVS 20050430 of nandBot 2 (an IRC robot) has been released. This is the first CVS version of nandBot 2, which has been completely rewritten with many new features, notably internationalization. Please bang on it, translate it, rewrite the documentation, and break it :)

Since nandBot has been completely rewritten, some features are missing, notably passwords, and the lack of all administrative commands other than "quit", which is not password protected.

This version makes use of Locale::Maketext, and is multi-lingual. A Pig Latin translation is included.

nandBot 2.0 now uses SQLite (Available from CPAN or your package vendor) for a database. There is currently no way to import your Legacy nandBot 0.5 configuration. This is in the works.

Note that Win32 is not officially supported in nandBot 2.0 (But you are welcome to try).

Bear in mind that this is a CVS Snapshot. The first CVS snapshot. There are bugs. A lot of bugs. There are also missing features. But that's another story.

nandBot 0.51 released!

April 24, 2004

Finally, after 6 months, nandBot 0.51 has been released. Sorry it took me so long!

nandBot is a cool IRC Robot written in Perl with some unique features, and some not-so-unique features. Have fun with this new release.

By the way, I should point out that I have an idea for a pretty darn cool new feature that will be coming soon(tm) to a nandBot near you.
