It is only available now however I have already made three versions of the bot, the latest is Alpha3 (check the download section) and I'm currently working on the next version, which will probably be Alpha4, but don't expect to see it before a few weeks.
Wbot is my very first bot, it has been made from HPB bot template (how original!) and it is only a few months old, so there are still few bugs left.
