Pastebot Snapshot Released: Security, Install Fixes

Pastebot accepts "pastes" through a web interface and announces the URLs where they can be fetched to IRC. An increasing number of technical channels use Pastebot to avoid the example spamming usually associated with questions like "Why doesn't this {code,configuration} work?!" It can also be used to share arbitrary text, and future plans include multimedia.

This release fixes several major bugs, including the installation procedure and a serious security issue. If you are running pastebot, please upgrade now. See the CHANGES file for details.

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.
