PhantomBot 2.4.0 Release Notes:

Hey there! Firstly, I’d like to begin with a thank you. Thank you for supporting us, thank you for contributing, thank you for sharing, thank you for making PhantomBot what it is today. We recently surpassed one hundred thousand downloads, and to us, that’s incredible. To add to that, we recently just passed the two year anniversary of PhantomBot v2.0. To celebrate, we’re announcing an official partnership with Design By Humans, and we plan on opening a PhantomBot Merchandise shop later this week! We’ve also decided to release @IllusionaryOne’s “Data Rendering Service” to the public. With the Data Rendering Service, you’re able to have a dedicated website to show your current commands, points, quotes, times, and ranks! We hope you enjoy!

As for the release; we know it’s been awhile, but we’ve been really squashing bugs! We’ve also added a lot of features which the community has requested as well, you can see the details below. As always if you have anything to suggest to us, make a post on our forum! We hope you enjoy this release, and as always please remember to report bugs on our community forum!

As a reminder, PhantomBot is free and will stay free. We strongly believe in open source principles and providing a service to the community. However, we do accept donations to help out with the costs of providing servers and other infrastructure. Also be sure to follow us on Twitter, signing up to to our newsletter, as well as joining our Discord server for more news and updates regarding PhantomBot!
