HWBOT V5.8.0/V5.9.0 Released: Integration of Simplified Chinese Language, League and Benchmark Timeline Features

It has been a while since the latest Revision 5 status update. The delay can mostly be explained by the well deserved vacation every developer had. Additionally, we also faced a delay with a couple of deep back-end code that refrained us from releasing the V5.8.0 and V5.9.0 revisions. One of the bugs we caught early on would delete the entire database. Woops!

Luckily, Frederik and Dennis worked through the bugs and everything is fully functional now. We are the most proud about the integration of the Simplified Chinese language of the site. Hopefuly, that will bring new overclockers from the east to this community. Also, we implemented the League History Timeline (example here) and the Benchmark Record Timeline (example here). Both timelines are still in their first revision and will be updated in the future. If you have requests or suggestions on what to improve, feel free to drop a message in the forum. Regarding the Benchmark Record Timeline: it speaks for itself that we can only automatically include records that were posted at HWBOT. As we are not in the business of re-writing history, we have dedicated a small part of our forum to OC Archeology. For more information, have a look at this news post: click.

In any case, we have begun working on V5.10.0 and will hopefuly release that version soon. Until then, enjoy this one!
