QuakeNet Overhauls Q

The QuakeNet IRC network did a major overhaul of its major channel service Q.

“As many of you have noticed we’ve just upgraded our main channel service, Q, to a new version,” meeb announced on the QuakeNet website.

The upgrade consists of a complete rewrite of the bot and includes all old functionality and adds some new ones. Channels who previously used L have been upgraded to the new Q as well.

Bot response messages to commands have been changed. IRC-Junkie tried to ask QuakeNet whether problems have risen with scripts depending on these messages but we have had no reply.

New functionality includes channel statistics, channel- user- and personal-flags, new give owner command and lots more which can be found described in detail here

    Looks like it’s not open source, which is unfortunate. The code to their old services was available, although the Q and O sources are kind of dated now.
