Summary     : The world's most popular Open Source IRC bot
Description :
Eggdrop is the world's most popular Open Source IRC bot, designed
for flexibility and ease of use. It is extendable with Tcl scripts
and/or C modules, has support for the big five IRC networks and is
able to form botnets, share partylines and userfiles between bots.

Update Information:

Eggdrop 1.6.21

Bug fixes

  * Fixed a very old bug where unsetting the "nick-len" variable in Tcl, then attempting to restart the bot will crash it. 
  * Cygwin 1.7 can have issues getting the dns server list, you can now set the dns-servers config variable to fix this.
  * QNX6/Mac OS X/Solaris dns.mod fixes
  * 64bit fixes
  * Crash bug fix with Tcl8.5.10 and workaround for a bug in Tcl8.5.10
  * Reverted the ability of vwait and update to process Eggdrop events - this will come in 1.8 (too buggy for now).
  * env(TZ) default config setting is now correct
  * Compilation against Tcl8.3/8.4 works again 

New/modified config variables

  * dns-servers: List of DNS servers dns.mod uses, writable
  * dns-cache: Time in seconds to cache successful DNS replies
  * dns-negcache: Negative DNS replies caching time
  * dns-maxsends: Limits the number of retries for failed DNS queries
  * dns-retrydelay: Time in seconds between retries
