0.8 Released

Version 0.8 is finally ready. This version incorporates a lot of stability features (save state, flood protection) and a regex ignore feature. The coming up 0.9 release will be mostly code cleanup, stability and cosmetic fixes.

0.8 Coming Soon...

Version 0.8 is coming... so far:
-Prioritized Flood Protection (Via Queueing)
-Save State (Bot saves/loads state of game)
-Pid file
-A few other little useful features users have asked for.

As you can see the new version focuses on stability and ability to continue 'hourly' games even after crashes.

Please Read

If you are running a blitzed trivia game (or planning on it), please email me at strtok@blitzed.org and let me know you are using it! I'm looking for suggestions from users about new features and configurations to add and have receieved quite a few already. The Blitzed Trivia project is very alive and I am looking for input.

Bugs

I am aware there are several bugs in the current version. For instance the question history does not properly roll over; so if the question.db is small, once all questions are asked the bot will hang.

This and other bugs will be fixed in an upcoming release, possibly this weekend.
