mostely). Push functionality is also provided (think RSS feeds to your IRC channel or XMPP conference). It is possible to program your own plugins to create custom


 see http://jsonbot.org and http://jsonbot.googlecode.com

make backup first

I added the jsb-backup program, please run this before starting the 0.80 bot. It will make a backup of your datadir into ~/jsb-backups


* GAE is no longer part of the standard distribution, as that is aimed at shell users as of 0.80 - use the mercurial repo if you want to use the GAE part of the bot
* web console is now supported on shell - use the jsb-tornado program to launch a tornado web server bot on port 10102 
* jsb-xmpp now supports OpenFire - use --openfire option to enable this
* todo now uses per user databases instead of per channel - use the -c option to the todo command to show the channel todo
* learn items are not global per default - use !learn-toglobal to copy local learn data to the global learndb
* relay plugins has been rewritten to use bot.cfg.name as well - means that relays need to be created again  
* jsb-udpstripped program has been added that can be used to send udp data to the bot without the need of making config files (copy and edit it)
* add fulljids = 1 to your xmpp bot config (most of the times in ~/.jsb/config/fleet/default-sxmpp/config) to enable full JID discovery in xmpp conference rooms
  (non anonymous)


* lots of new plugins .. see !list ;]
* lots of bug fixes - thnx everybody for reporting them
* still lots of things to fix at
