3     Whats new, first read the following documents:
4     INSTALL
5     README
6     BOTNET
7     UPDATES1.5
8     MODULES
9     tcl-commands.doc
10    
11    
12     All of these documents combined will fill you in on the latest
13     changes to eggdrop in version 1.5.xx.
14    
15     Alot of things have changed in this version so at a minimum read the
16     UPDATES1.5 and BOTNET text files. UPDATES shows whats been added and
17     fixed along the way. BOTNET gives a comprehensive step by step guide on
18     linking bots and the new bot flags.
19    
20     CAUTION:
21     1. Before you start the bot for the first time BACKUP your userfile if
22     this is an upgrade from a previous version.
23    
24     2. DON'T USE YOUR OLD CONFIG FILE!! MAKE A NEW ONE.........
25    
26     SHARING
27     Sharing has changed a little. You will notice that a resync buffer is
28     kept for share bots when they disconnect. This allows for them not to
29     have to send the entire userfile again when they reconnect. This is a
30     much more effient approach to syncing the user files.
31    
32     BOTFLAGS
33     Bot flags have changed. It is recommended that you read the BOTNET
34     document to learn more about linking bots. Major changes in how you
35     configure a passive and aggressive bot.
36    
37     USERFLAGS
38     User flags have changed. You still have the basic flags but others have
39     been added. Some changes to this are that if someone has a global +n they
40     will automatically be given all the global flags available. You will also
41     notice there are no more capital letters; each flag has its own unique
42     letter. An example is the B flag, in previous versions, it stood for a
43     botnet master. The new flag is t. For more information on these changes,
44     see the .help whois for a list of all flags. 1.3.24 introduces a new flag
45     for +stopnethack procedure flexibility: +w.
46    
47     LANGUAGES
48     Almost everthing the bot says now is in language file. This should allow
49     the bot to be more versatile for other people that do not speak english.
50     As soon as we start getting the translations in there will be a directory
51     on raistlin.toledolink.com that will contain ready to use language files.
52     Look for it real soon.
53    
54     FILESYS
55     The filesys module has changed it's db format to add flexibility and remove
56     the limits imposed by the old format. There's nothing special for you to
57     do as the old db is automatically converted to the new format when you first
58     access it. You won't be able to downgrade to older versions after this
59     though, so maybe you'll want to make a backup first.
60    
61     3. MISC stuff
62    
63     COMMANDS
64     .voice and .devoice commands where added in dcc chat. This will
65     voice a user on a channel if the bot is oped. Likewise for the .devoice
66     command.
67    
68     .email is now support in userinfo1.0.tcl so if you want emails to work, use
69     this :)
