AutoMOD 1.0.1 Released

The Modifications Team is proud to announce the immediate availability of the "Appsterdam Hackathon" release of AutoMOD, our automated MOD installation tool. There have been a large number of bug fixes for this release. Changelog later in this post.

About AutoMOD
AutoMOD is a tool for installing MODs in an automated manner. It performs the file edits for you. As of today, AutoMOD is considered a stable release, meaning we believe all the serious bugs have been removed, and will provide support for any which do still exist.

Getting started
Download it from ... l/automod/
Copy the contents of the root directory to your forum root and point your browser to: https://[yourdomain.tld]/install/index.php.
For updates you can either use AutoMOD itself or do the same as for installs. Make sure to answer "Yes" if your upload tool asks for permission to overwrite files.

You can also find AutoMOD translations at ... l/automod/ as they become available.

The source is available from github under GNU GPL version 2.
