Release v1.0

The intial release of Brandonn's primary features, with a few updates and quality of life changes.

Version 20w04a

Changes

  • Minor Updates:
    • Renamed Default Channels to a server's Announcement Channel and updated relevant descriptions.
    • Rebuilt embeds to improve wording consistency and visual quality.
    • Other minor updates to the website.
  • Sentiment Analysis Reworks:
    • Grouped the statistics and analysis differently for individual member and channel sentiment analysis differently to decrease wordiness.
    • Updated all-user and all-channel sentiment analysis embeds to show better visual hierarchy. Channels are now sorted by their categories, and members are now sorted by their topmost roles.
  • Introduced TITANIA Message Recognition:
    • Rebuilt the message recognition system to decrease complexity but increase usefulness.
    • TITANIA no longer splits messages by words' perceived word types as this was causing significant bugs, particularly around the word "help"
    • Now natively recognises Discord-specific classes like @mentions or #channels.
