Chatbot Activity Page
I've created a new "Chatbot Activity" page (under the Build menu) that shows recent chat activity for each of your chatbots, as well as charts of activity over time. This is the new landing page when logging in.

In addition, Transcripts will automatically jump over empty days when clicking "Next". You're now able to have multiple bots' Transcript pages open at once, and I've returned User Transcripts to working order. Clicking your own name under Build > Transcripts will once again show you the transcripts for your own chats.

Better Chatbot URLs
I've updated the URLs for chatbot profiles and chatbot chat pages to use the following format:

/chatbot/bot_name
/chat/bot_name

The old urls will continue to work as well.

New Special Keyphrase: #repeat
#repeat is triggered when someone repeats the same thing to your chatbot. A default has been added to each chatbot. View it in your Language Center under "special". Imports will require this new Keyphrase. Remember that "Repetition Detection" in your bot's settings must be set to "on" for this to work.

How To Build Chatbots
I've renamed the "Book of AI" section to "How To Build Chatbots" and made some improvements. Also, you can now search by API Data in the Language Center.

Example Keyphrase Matches
I've added a great tool to the Keyphrase editor to help people understand what kind of things Keyphrases match and what the (key)s they generate are.

Big Bot Guide Improvements
After watching my son build his first chatbots, I've improved a number of things. New bots will all be linked to the Master Bot Template. The Template will now also contain default Responses that can be customized. This means new bots will be much better at chatting from the get-go. Linked bots now also have a "Bot level" and guided development that I'll be adding to over time.

Development Score Adjustment
I've adjusted the algorithm for calculating each chatbot's Development score. Overall the values will have dropped a little for all bots, but for those with a lot of duplicated content, those numbers will have dropped more.
