Project Release Information
This release is a sort of "technology preview": it has important new features, most notably search and Bible book name localization, but search works only with the modified diatheke backend, and l10n works properly with latest diatheke svn. These features are optional at the moment, and upgrading is recommended anyway because of bugfixes and other enhancements.
Some small changes were made, including better error handling for admins.
There are some new features for both admins and
end users. There is also a new instance running
for Jabber and Google Talk users.
No major changes in this release. More important is that the bot is now running and is available for testing.
JD Bible Bot is a chat bot for some instant messaging systems (mainly Jabber and Google Talk) with which people can read the Holy Scriptures of Christianity and other related material. The networking part is based on Jabber technology, and the Bible part is based on diatheke and the Sword project. Jabber gateways allow this program to be used with MSN, AIM, Yahoo!, ICQ, and other IM systems. Dozens of Bible translations, commentaries, lexicons, and other related works can be used.
