And the dirty little secret of mine is that if work had started just a little later on BeBot, or if Blondengy didn't end up convinced to start work on it, it would most likely have been written in either Ruby or Python :)

Happy anniversary! :

Is it possible to just swap the files that had a change? And if so, and it aren't too many, which are these files?

I've made small edits and placed mods all over the place, so I'd really like to not do it all over again if it isn't necessary. But if it's, let's say, 10+ files that has had a change then I probably will do the work over again :)

There have been quite a few changes between 0.6.6 and 0.6.7 as evident from the changelog, but it's perfectly possible to manually make the changes yourself.

See http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~bebot-devel/bebot/stable-0.6/changes/178?start_revid=178 for a complete file by file changelog.

Alternatively you could create a diff patch of your changes from 0.6.6 and apply that to 0.6.7.
