Hello world ;]

I'm back with another release of JSONBOT, this time it is version 0.5
so we are half way through making this a 1.0 release. Lot of changes
to the core as well as other bug fixes, let me sum it up:

* this version requires an upgrade of your 0.4 JSONBOT if you run
already a JSONBOT see UPGRADE for more details on this.
* code is adapted to use the Channel API, you need google_appengine
version 1.4.0 for this.
* website has gotten a brand new look and feel.
* JSONBOT now uses ~/.jsonbot as its default datadir.
* the RSS plugin was rewritten to work on any feed instead of only
feed that support the pubDate token.
* shell bots now log to ~/.jsonbot/botlogs by default, rotating the
logs every day.
* lots and lots of bug fixes.


* source code: http://jsonbot.googlecode.com
* web demo: http://jsonbot.appspot.com
* jabber demo: jsonbot at appspot.com
* documentation: http://jsonbot.appspot.com/docs
* bugs: http://code.google.com/p/jsonbot/issues/list
* twitter: http://twitter.com/#!jsonbot

I consider JSONBOT to be of BETA quality now, i think it has become
quite usable ;] Any feedback would be very much appreciated.

As always ... HF !
