Hello every human out there !

i'm pleased to announce the release of JSONBOT 0.6.1 FINAL, a release
that saw a lot of work into the shell side of things and no changes to

0.6.1 has the following changes:

* the ! char is not used instead of | in a pipeline. This is to make
it easier to use a pipeline on mobile phones.

* a new commandline interface has been created. You can now do "jsb
botcommand " .. no need to start up the console app when you have a
single command to execute

* ? is now used a query character, so things you learn the bot with !
learn can be queried with ?

* auto_register and guestasuser config options are now disabled by

* core xmpp parsing code has been rewritten

* many more bug fixes.

You can grab a copy of the code (tarball or mercurial repo) at
