Pastebot is a single-process Web service and IRC bot that accepts multi-line "pastes" via the web and announces them (with their URLs) on IRC. This release introduces long-needed features, such as a persistent paste database and much nicer default templates. A bunch of bugs were fixed along the way. See the CHANGES file for more information.
An increasing number of technical channels use pastebot to avoid the example spamming usually associated with people asking "Why doesn't this work?" It can also be used to share arbitrary text, and future plans include multimedia.
Pastebot features the award-winning POE networking and multitasking framework to implement the IRC bot with a bolt-on Web interface in the same process. Please see http://poe.perl.org/ for more information.
