Drone is a Java IRC bot written with the RIFE framework. It has a modular API that makes it possible to easily extend and customize the active feature set.

It sports a modern web administration interface to handle all common tasks and a public logging section with an advanced web search. It also provides a remote IRC messaging REST API to allow easy integration with notification services. Installation is done by simply dropping a war in your servlet container or by running it straight from the standalone distribution.

The highlights of this release are:
* a powerful web search for the logs with highlighting
* a remote IRC messaging user interface
* automatic reconnection after server downtime
* bugfixes
