Pastebot is an IRC bot that saves channels from large amounts of pasted material. Text is pasted into a Web form, and the bot (optionally) announces an URL where it can be read. Interested people can partake in the joy without the whole channel scrolling to hell.

Release Notes: Bot::Pastebot is now available as a full-fledged CPAN distribution, which means the installation process is simple and reliable.
Release Notes: Several long-standing issues were fixed. The template engine was replaced with Text::Template, fixing paste mangling issues. The ability to wrap long lines of text was added, and content was added to the 404 page. Apache ProxyPass support was fixed, allowing the bot to be advertised on port 80.
Release Notes: This release introduces a security fix, periodic paste expiry, and notes for using Apache's ProxyPass directives to hide the server behind a port 80 directory.
Release Notes: Added support for configuring how a paste is displayed, including "Plain text" (unformatted). The stylesheet was improved, most Web content was moved into templates, Perl::Tidy support, and a problem with pastes with newlines when viewed by IE clients was fixed.
Release Notes: Several new management features, documentation in the configuration file, and new summary and nickname support.
