older updates

- built in spell checker (Hunspell)
- built in irc client to quickly access our live help channel on freenode via a click of a button
- irc will be fully scriptable. This can be used to control your bot scripts over irc :)
- bug fix: event handlers of disabled scripts will no longer be called
- you can define your own special exits. Those exits will be used in the pathfinding, but they will not be shown on the map as most of those are secret or magical usually.

Another new feature is that one way exits are now possible. Up until now, one way exits were not being used by the path finding backbone.

new functions:
addSpecialExit( roomID_from, roomID_to, command )
getSpecialExits( roomID ) : table where the keys are to roomIDs of the exit rooms with the appropriate command as value
getSpecialExitsSwap( roomID ): same table as getSpecialExits() but with commands as keys and roomIDs as values
clearSpecialExits( roomID )
getRoomsByPosition( areaID, x, y, z ) : table with room collisions
setExit(id_from, id_to, direction_id ) now properly deletes exits if the id_to is 0 for a given direction (for special exits look above)
getRoomEnv(roomID) : integer environment color
echoCommandLine( text ) : appends text to the command line
openUrl( url ) opens an URL in a native browser window just like the manual when the help button is pressed
downloadFile( filepath, url ) downloads a file from the internet asynchronously to filepath and raises the event sysDownloadDone with the filepath as second parameter when the download is finished, in case of an error sysDownloadError is raised with the error description as second argument
getRoomUserData( id, key ) : returns the user value stored for key
setRoomUserData( id, key, value )
getRoomsByPosition(area_id, x,y,z) : returns a table with room ids on this position (=room collisions)
appendCmdLine( txt ) - echo to command line, but appends txt to the current command line text (->printCmdLine(txt))
openUrl( url ) - open url in a native web browser

does this mean a table like...
Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
Using lua Syntax Highlighting
table {
1552   = 'swim north'
1895  = 'swim south'
}

... or something like that?

I was hoping for a table like the one for room exits
Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]
Using lua Syntax Highlighting
table {
'swim north'  = 1552
'swim south'  = 1895
 }

... or something like that (this this just my preferance? I think it would be easier to deal with the table like this... I fear the first thing I will do is swap the values into a new table... when you track movement you need to match the command that is used not the room you are going to... only need the room it goes to if you use it)

I prefer how it is. You can easily swap the values if you'd need it.

I can (and will). I can't think of any reason to have the table key be the destination room ID. It seems odd to me as the standard exits table that is returned is the exact opposite. I am curious why you prefer it. Care to share the rationale?

I can see good reasons for both variants and I'll add the function getSpecialExitsSwap().

Just a guess: Usually for map-query things (pathfinding etc.) you might first want to check certain rooms for their properties/connections/etc. before worrying about which commands to use to get there. So you'd first know the ID's of the rooms, and then look those up to get the commands to go there.

changed getRoomColor(id) to getRoomEnv( id ) as we also have setRoomEnv( id )

Environment colors can be defined by the user via:
setCustomEnvColor() and getCustomEnvColorTable()
