it would be good if you could do a quick paragraph on the move to c++. I realise a key part was security but was there any other benefits present or future.

Seth,

 

can you talk a bit about the release plan? Do we talk about weeks, months or years here? When can we expect 5.5?

 

Will it also include a new Mulithreading engine? 

Browser engine will still be awesomium?

 

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

 

Kindest regards

Dan

But seriously, setting hard deadlines is a good idea in business and a terrible idea in programming. It's hard to know exactly when it will be ready, but I'd like to have it done within the month. That's not a guarantee, but we're all working crazy hard on it, so it shouldn't take too long.

 

The browser will still be awesomium for 5.5. Beyond 5.5, I'd like to work toward integrating alternative browsers. Awesomium is a great library, but it's frustrating to deal with browser issues that I have no control over. Web browsers are naturally messy and buggy, and awesomium is better than a lot of browsers (I'm looking at you, internet explorer), but at the very least, offering an option would only help things.

 

The threading bugs are already fixed, pending more testing. Additionally, as we talked about before, I'd like to build in a better system for threading. In some of the scripts I've seen, there have been clever ways to run a thread a given number of times while limiting the number of threads running at any given time. The downside is that these methods significantly increase the complexity of the script, leading to scripting errors and general headaches for our support staff. If the thread command wrapped that complexity, so you could just set properties for total threads and max threads at a time, I think it would be a good start. Threading is hard, but it's also awesome. I'll see what I can do to make it super simple.

I have this written in a plugin just waiting on my support ticket replied :)

here it is in its most simple form http://screencast.com/t/Mw5AF9m0jCO

There's more complex commands for the more advanced ubotters.

Awesome Seth! It's great that you are more active in the community and share some of the Ubot team insides! Looking forward to the future. It's getting better.

Seth, it's really good to hear from you. Your creation has become a daily part of my life, and my family's life. I went from working dead end jobs to starting 4 of my own successful company's, making a really good living, just from using your software (Thank You!). I know v 5 and your team has the potential to take it to the next level and blow v 4 out of the water. I hope we can see your progress emails come back soon also. Best of luck to you Seth.

Any updates Seth, been radio silence for a few weeks since you announced V5.5 and made a rare appearance into the Skype group.
