Changelog 11/27/20

ChannelBot v4, new website, dashboard, and reorganized docs!

After months of tiring work, we're happy to bring you ChannelBot version 4! We've added new features, fixed bugs, recoded every single command, built a dashboard and changed up our website! Thank you so much for waiting, and we're thankful that you were part of this journey. First of all, I'd like to give a big thank you to our wonderful beta testers! Zoin, BeanJR, Differential flux, Reptetion, unbelievable 🍕, and Ryan, and an even bigger thanks to Mason for helping A LOT with the development of version 4.

We've changed ChannelBot's database to MongoDB from JSON, which is a lot more secure, faster, and gives us a lot more flexibility! And last but not least, we're excited to release our Dashboard! Though it has only basic settings, it's a lot easier to manage some things on the dashboard instead of with commands on Discord. This dashboard is still new, and there may be some bugs crawling around, so be sure to let us know if you find any! Check it out here.
