Mirai Bot 4.14 - Giveaways, Music, and More

Mirai Bot 4.14 brings some long-needed changes to Mirai. First, there's the new giveaway system that gives you the ability to run easily configurable giveaways in your server. Along with that, the music system has been completely re-written to be more powerful than ever, bringing us much closer to the full release. Even if you don't use those features, this update still includes a ton of improvements to Mirai.
