This is the first release since 3.0_GA which was released more than a year ago (shortly after server merge). Note that while there was a 3.1 version, there was no 3.1 release.

Downloading the new version
The download location for Budabot has changed. From now on you can find Budabot downloads here: https://github.com/Budabot/Budabot/releases

Note that GA versions will be marked with a green "Latest Release" tag while RC versions will be marked with an orange "Pre-release" tag.

In the past we provided both a Windows-specific and a Linux-specific download. For this release, there is only one file and it will run on both Windows and Linux (Budabot3.2_RC1.zip).

This is a Release Candidate. Although this version has gone through lots of testing 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.

Upgrading from a previous version
To upgrade from 3.0_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. If you use MySQL instead of SQLite, instead of copying /data/budabot.db you will just point the bot to the MySQL database. Since the config file has changed slightly, we do not recommend copying it from the old bot.

We always recommend making a backup of your current bot before upgrading.

If you are running a version of Budabot before 3.0_GA (this includes any 2.x version or any 3.0_RCx versions), you should upgrade to 3.0_GA first before upgrading to 3.2_RC1.

If you follow these instructions, all settings, guests, admins, alts, quotes, news, etc. should be automatically imported into the new version of the bot.
