Q. Is there a way to automatically update the core and plugins?

A. On Linux and Mac OS X, yes. Just put the following lines into a file:

        rm JavaOp2-Core-Current.*
        rm JavaOp2-Plugins-Current.*
        wget http://www.javaop.com/javaop2/JavaOp2-Core-Current.tgz && tar -xvvzf JavaOp2-Core-Current.tgz
        wget http://www.javaop.com/javaop2/JavaOp2-Plugins-Current.tgz && tar -xvvzf JavaOp2-Plugins-Current.tgz

Call it "update.sh". Then make it executable:

        chmod +x update.sh

Then simply run it whenever you want to update. It will create 2 folders called Core and Plugins with the appropriate files.

Why doesn't the Swing GUI scroll to the bottom when new text arrives?

The Swing GUI will scroll to the bottom only if the cursor is currently at or near the bottom. the big advantage of this is that you can read back chat or select (to copy/paste) text from the chat window without being messed up by people talking. As of beta5, when you send a message out, it will automatically bring the cursor to the bottom.

Why can't I ban somebody who's outside the channel?

Banning people outside the channel causes a lot of problems that allow members to ban anybody. For example, ".ban 'leader" or ".ban leader@uswest", etc. I thought it was better to not allow members to ban anybody the bot can't see rather than letting members take advantage of a loophole to ban anybody.
