    Release Notes: The custom error handling class 'mx' was renamed to 'monkeyx' because it was causing a namespace conflict with the popular eGenix mx libraries and generating errors for some users.

      Release Notes: eBay started requiring SSL logins and true session tracking. This release swaps custom HTML routines with cURL to handle those changes.

        Release Notes: A new engine routine, scrape_sign_in(), was added. This routine is used to validate the specified username/password combination prior to entering snipe mode. This prevents users from missing auctions if they mistype their password. A minor error in scrape_place_bid() was fixed. scrape_place_bid() was modified so that "you are the current high bidder" is no longer considered a failure.

              Release Notes: The monkey_engine database loading routines are now re-entrant. The monkey engine renew database routine reloads the patterns database, allowing for pattern updates without the need to restart bid monkey. A bug was fixed in the price determination routine where the "buy it now" price was overriding the current price. The button calls for showing or hiding were moved out of sleep() and into go_monkey().

                Release Notes: This version is a complete rewrite in Python featuring both a command line and GUI interface for both Windows and Linux. It was written in an object oriented manner and the base classes can be utilized in other applications. Pattern matching expressions have been abstracted into a separate Web-updatable flat file allowing for adaptation to changes in eBay without requiring a re-release.
