We've finally gotten out 0.76.0! Yay!
Roadmap-wise, I'm going to be focusing on user-friendliness in this next (0.77.0) release. That means things like:
Writing an upgrade script and an upgrade framework to aid users in upgrading their bots for each new version.
Improving questions.py to handle default arguments.
Making everything possible configurable; this also means fixing Configurable to be able to do non-channel-based plugins.
Continually improving logging throughout the bot; now that we have a nice logging infrastructure, we need to be using it.
Rounding out the commands available in certain plugins, both for consistency and compatibility with other bots.
Closing out a lot of the outstanding RFEs so we don't look like such slackers :)
Moving not-so-general plugins (like OSU and Gameknot, and perhaps others) out into the Plugin tracker
Finishing Infobot for those who want to have compatibility with Infobot.
Setting up a system for plugins to have designated authors that can be responsible for them.
These will be my major focuses for the next release. Achieving these goals will bring the bot a lot closer to the user-friendliness we'll need before we can go officially beta. Of course, other people are welcome to do their own thing; these are simply what I will be focusing on.
I expect to release 0.77.0 in about a month or so. We may have one 0.76.1 release in the meantime, assuming the 0.76.0 release wasn't majorly botched.
