An fserve for XChat

2005-11-10 :: The End

Yeah, it's true... This is the end of TuxServe. Well, it actually ended a long time ago, but I never bothered updating the site. I will not be developing TuxServe any further. No more bug fixes and no more additions.

What do you use instead? Try Obsidian+ - it is an updated and modified version of the old Obsidian fserve. This fserve features most of TuxServe's features and, because it's written in perl, it should be much more portable. Having said that, I have not actually used Obsidian+ - so judge for yourself.

A few final, important notes about TuxServe: This site will remain, the project is still GPLed, it is full of bugs (which I will not be fixing), it does NOT work on OS X, I won't be accepting any further patches for it and I am no-longer providing support for it (since most of the problems relate to things I won't be fixing).

Thanks to everyone who supported the project; from the testers and bug reporters, to those who submitted patches. A list of thanks is available here. You guys and gals made the project a load of fun and I really appreciate all the help you gave me.

So long and thanks for all the fish.


2005-07-25 :: One Angry Dwarf And 200 Solemn Faces!

Greeting TuxServians, I come bearing more good news :)

First up is the porting of my Welcome Back plugin to Windows! Credit for this feat goes to Jory Stone - so thanks a lot dude :) It's nice to see people making use of the stuff I write, and even more cool to see the GPL in action (as said by Eno_). Now all the windows using X-Chat peoples can use the blinding WB plugin.

The Win32 pack can be downloaded from Jory's site. I should probably state that I haven't actually tested this out for myself (I have no Windows boxen) - let me know how it goes.

There will also be a new patch for the latest version of TuxServe coming out soon to fix a few of the bugs. I can't give a date, but it should be soon. Within a week or 2. Maybe... Check back next week to see if I've released it or not. If I haven't, feel free to come and bug me.



2005-06-04 :: TuxServe Released!

It's here! Finally, a new release! Yay. Party time.

Hands up: how many of you thought I wouldn't actually get around to releasing this? All of you? Have faith! _@_" <-- that's a lowly snail, yet it has faith! Be like the snail. Try not to leave that slimy stuff everywhere, though - that's annoying to clean up...

Anyhoo, back to the release. This release contains a great many bug fixes over previous versions, so it should be even more stable than before. There aren't many new features in this new release, but there may be one or two. This version *should* also support 64bit x86 machines properly - but that is currently still "theory", as it has not been tested. Let me know how it goes. Let me know of any bugs/problems, too - the usual place.

Get it here.



2005-06-02 :: Wallace And The Anti-Wallace.

Minor updates to the code have been made and it is hopefully now fully compatible with x86 64bit machines. Thanks to 'Lord Drantin' for pointing out the problems with TuxServe on 64bit machines. This new stuff is on the CVS repository. Please let me know if it doesn't work or if you find any bugs.

There will hopefully be a new release out within a day or 2. It's been way too long since the last one. Check back tomorrow or the day after to see if it's out yet :)

Remember that XMMS plugin for X-Chat I mentioned I'd make available at xmas? Yeah, well I finally released it. There is no nice page for it yet, but the 'README' file should explain everything you need to know. If not, you know where to find me. It can be obtained from HERE.

While you're at it, check out my new site: :)

So, until the new release: enjoy.
