It's finally time! Budabot 2.3 GA is here. I'm definitely biased in the matter, but it is, without a doubt, the best Budabot we've ever released.

Many thanks go out to the ENTIRE Budabot team without which this release would not be possible. Also, many thanks to all the users who have tested, reported bugs, and given invaluable insight and suggestions. I am extremely happy with the progress that Budabot project has made and the community support we have gained over these nearly 2 years that I have worked with it. But the thing that I am most proud of is that this project is a project by the community, and so many people have contributed I honestly cannot list them all.

Anyway, on to the details. We've fixed quite a lot of bugs that existed in the 2.2 version. Almost all of them were small, but it is still a good feeling to have those fixed and working. We've also done more with the help system. There should be a help file for every command now. If you find a command without a help file, please tell us. Also, we've revamped the security module. You can enable the 'alts_inherit_admin' setting which means that all of a player's alts will receive the same access level as their main. You can also give access level based on org rank. For instance, you could have all Generals and above automatically get Moderator access on the bot. This works in conjunction with the 'alts_inherit_admin' setting, so with that setting enabled, all Generals and their alts would automatically be granted Moderator access.

We've also added several new commands including: !aou, !aospeak, !ofabweapons, !ofabarmor, !logoff, !penalty, !aliaslist, !orgcities, and !checkaccess and we've enhanced many of the existing commands to provide additional information.

Also, Budabot now tracks command usage (!usage) which tells you the most used commands and also the people who use the bot the most. By default, Budabot will submit these usage stats (command names only; no character or org names or anything that could be use to identify you) to the Budabot.com website once a day. You can disable this if you wish from the !config USAGE menu, however, we encourage you to leave it enabled as it helps the Budabot team determine which commands to focus on and which commands are not used. It is our intention to make this info public, so that you can see which commands are most used from all Budabot stats, however, this has not been done yet, but we will let you know when it happens.

As always, download from here: http://code.google.com/p/budabot2/downloads/list
