Hey all,

We have renamed Eggdrop 1.7 to 1.9 -- this is because when 1.9 is ready
it will be released as Eggdrop 2.0.0 because of the significant changes.
It might be a bit confusing when 2.0.0 is released because the previous
development had a project called Eggdrop2 which did not turn out so
well. We are making every effort to not follow in their footsteps and to
build a program that we are proud of and that you can be proud of too.

Eggdrop1.9 would not be anywhere near where it is without the
outstanding development work of stdarg (#eggdrop at Undernet). We are
designing Eggdrop1.9 with flexibility in mind -- this is most notable in
the ability for multiple scripting languages to co-exist (Perl, Tcl,
Javascript, etc ...). Modules are being reworked so that they actually
make sense and are no longer the ugly hack that they are in Eggdrop 1.6.

Feel free to check it out and explore -- however, at this point in time
it is not ready for anything other than development. Unless you have a
handle on program development and are comfortable using the auto* tools
- -- you _should_ not use this tree.

We are looking for people to help get Eggdrop 1.9 to completion. If you
want to get involved -- please contact eggdev at There is a
lot of work yet to be done. You still have time to put into place ideas
you have that would make Eggdrop a better product. The motto we've had
for too many years of "well, this is how it has been done in the past"
is gone. We all know Eggdrop has a lot of bloated and uncomfortable code
- -- this is the time to for you to trim it.

We are always looking for people to help us. Coding is just one of the
many ways that help can be delivered.

Don't like the way the botnet is? Redesign it.

Don't like the way userfile sharing works? Fix it.

Don't like the way Eggdrop looks at you in the morning? Go see a head
