HWBOT v5.3.0/v5.4.0 Released: Data Mining API, New Pro OC Preparations and bugfixes

Last night we updated the HWBOT engine from v5.2.0 to v5.3.0 and directly also to v5.4.0. V5.3.0 includes mainly the features needed to enable support to get access to certain HWBOT data through our Data Mining API. A .PDF with more information can be found here: click. Version 5.4.0 is all about preparing the upcoming changes to the Pro OC League of which you can read through the details in this forum thread. The new Pro OC Cup is not yet ready for release as we're still developing a couple of additional features in the next release (v5.5.0). We also included a bunch of additional bugfixes that are included in the v5.5.0 release, but were already installed on the production server.

Again, a big thumbs up to Dennis and Frederik for all the hard work they are putting into the HWBOT development!
