This is the General Availability release of Budabot 3.3. This release contains some bug fixes, some updates for the 18.7 patch, and a few new commands. We recommend that all users upgrade to this newest version.

We added a !feedback command to allow players to submit feedback to the Budabot team from in-game. The forums are still the recommended way for contacting the Budabot team, but at the same time we realize that sometimes that is not feasible. You can use this command to submit any type of feedback including bug reports, feature requests, praise, and criticism.

We tested aoitems.com support for the !items command in 3.3_RC1 but had to remove it due to some issues so that was not included in this this release. However, the issues with aoitems.com have now been resolved so for the people that would like to start using this new functionality, we will be doing an early release of 3.4 (probably 3.4_RC1) in the near future.

Downloading the new version
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.

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 Budabot forums so that we may help you and so that we may fix the problem for others. You may also submit bug reports using the new !feedback command.

Upgrading from a previous version
To upgrade from 3.2_GA, 3.3_RC1 or 3.3_RC2, copy the database (/data/budabot.db) to the new bot before starting it. The config file format has not changed since 3.2_GA so you can copy it (/conf/config.php) from your current bot to the new bot (before starting it for the first time), or you can go through the setup wizard if you prefer.

If you use MySQL instead of SQLite, instead of copying /data/budabot.db you will just configure the new bot to use the same MySQL database as your current bot. If you go through the setup wizard on the new bot instead of copying the config file, choose "yes" when it asks if you if you want to setup the database manually, and then choose the options for your MySQL server.

We always recommend making a backup of your current bot before upgrading. We made large changes to the database for the QUOTES_MODULE. We put forth a lot of effort to ensure that the upgrades happen without data loss. However, we would like to emphasize the importance of making backups before major upgrades such as this. You ignore this suggestion at your own risk.

If you are running a version of Budabot before 3.2_GA (this includes any 3.2_RC* versions), you should follow the instructions for upgrading to 3.2_GA first before you upgrade to 3.3_GA.

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