Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on RC2. Especially thanks to Shelly who helped reveal some of the issues with MySQL which should all be resolved in RC3.

A few things to note about this release:

1) we will now provide both a Windows-specific and a Linux-specific download

2) the Botmanager that Marebone wrote is now included with the bot (run botmanager.exe on Windows or botmanager.sh on Linux)

3) in order to fix one of the issues with !help that Shelly identified I had to use the GROUP_CONCAT SQL function. This function exists in MySql, and also in SQLite version 3.5.4 and later. If you run Budabot on Linux using SQLite and !help stops working, then likely your version of SQLite is not new enough. If this is the case, please make a post and I will explain what your options are.

Note that this is still a Release Candidate. That means that it is basically a beta version and although we have tried to iron out all the bugs, it is likely we didn't get them all. If you run into any problems while using this, please post on the forums so that we may help you and so that we may fix the problem.

As always, download this latest version of Budabot from here: http://code.google.com/p/budabot2/downloads/list
