We are very proud to announce that Errbot 4.0 is out !

Similar to the jump from 2.3 to 3.0, this new major release is a big step forward with only few incompatible changes compared to 3.2.

First, we would like to thank all the contributors and supporters for this awesome release.

Here are some of the highlights from this release.

User features:
- instead of persisting the bot state on disk, you can now (optionally) use databases like RDBMs (PostgreSQL, MySQL, etc), Redis, Google Firebase and Google Cloud Datastore (local Shelve storage is still the default and still works out of the box with no extra configuration necessary).
- you can now lock down the bot by filtering out core_plugins
- there is no more "favorite plugins", you !repos search and can find and install anything from the ~300 public plugins available.
- a new skype backend
- more flexible and advanced access control features

Developer features:
- a new scaffolding option to create super quickly a plugin (--new-plugin)
- identifiers had a long story on Errbot, this release simplifies them even further and unify them with the room identifiers.
- a new callback_mention that is called when anybody is mentioned in the chatrooms

Many smaller improvements have also been made and various bugs have been fixed. Please review the changelog carefully before upgrading at:

A small update: Seeing the extend of the changes and some (small) backward incompatibilities: we gonna skip version 2.3 and to go straight to 3.0. We are still checking if we did not break too much stuff before calling it 3.0.0-rc1. If you feel like courageous today, you can try it from head and report back if something regressed for you.

Just to let you know that #telegram support landed on master !

Feel free to give it a spin, this will be part to this ever growing 3.0 release.

Big kudos to +Nick Groenen for the new backend.
