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 :)
