Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on all the 3.0 RC versions. This version contains a number of fixes, improvements, and new commands over Budabot 2.3 GA. In addition, this version contains all the patches necessary to run on RK5 (the merged server).

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

Upgrading from a previous version
To upgrade from 3.0_RC3 (or later) simply copy your /data/budabot.db and /conf/config.php files from the old bot to the new bot before starting the new bot. To upgrade from any other 3.0 version or from 2.3_GA, copy only the /data/budabot.db to the new bot before starting it, and then go through the setup wizard again to set the username, password, etc. We always recommend keeping a backup of your current bot when upgrading. If you use MySQL instead of SQLite, instead of copying /data/budabot.db you will just point the bot to the MySQL database.

If you upgrade from 2.3_GA or later and follow these instructions, all settings, guests, admins, alts, quotes, news, etc. should remain intact and be available in the new version.

Other info
1) we 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.

This is a General Availability Release. This means that this bot has passed all our testing and we, the Budabot team, feel that is it ready for general public use. It is possible that there are still some bugs in the bot--if you happen to find any bugs or if you have any suggestions or improvements for the bot, please post on the forums so that we may help you and so that we may fix the problem for others as well.
