AkariXB v0.8 is out!

June 22, 2019

Here’s a new version of AkariXB, my Jabber/XMPP bot, much more talkative!

Setting up regular expressions with their replies

The main changes since v0.7 are:

  • Ability to greet users in chatrooms, talk to the rooms at random intervals, and react to room messages that match custom regular expressions.
  • Room configuration can specify whether the bot can talk in each room, and for what purposes.
  • String syntax will be checked for valid %substitutions% and {a|b|c} choices, where needed.
  • The list of chatrooms now uses a proper table with more information, and room configuration is clearer.

The source code for this release can be downloaded from linux-apps.com, part of the opendesktop.org network, and from AkariXB release archive at akarixb.nongnu.org.

The development repository is at gitlab.com/akarixb/akarixb-dev.

The main dependencies are Qt 5 and the QXMPP library.

AkariXB is available in the repositories of Mageia 6 and later, Rosa 2016.1 and Archlinux’s AUR. I hope it can be included in more GNU distributions soon. If you’re interested in having it in yours, just ask them 😉
