Jetrix 0.2 released!

I'm pleased to announce the release of Jetrix 0.2, Jetrix has reached a major milestone and can now be considered as a full replacement for tetrinetx. This new release includes many new features. On the player side there is now a sudden death mode, the ability to create channels, a new channel with custom settings, the support for idle channels and a better bpm counter. On the administrator side the web administration console is now mostly functional, changes in the configuration are saved to the disk, ghost connections are now automatically removed and the server IP is automatically published on the server lists at, and For developers, writing a /command is now easier and a new service API allows to run background tasks (like resetting the winlists at a fixed date).... read more

They are all running Jetrix 0.1.3, it seems that no one dared to deploy a nightly build yet :) Fortunately the version 0.2 is almost ready!

TetriNET Server Survey

Since I just wrote a query client for the next version of Jetrix, I thought I could poll all the servers listed on and and see what versions are deployed. 63 servers were checked, the result has been agregated by server family:

Jetrix comes 3rd, not bad for a beta version ! :)

Release 0.1.2 fixed

There was a packaging issue in the 0.1.2 release causing a ZipException on starting the server, fixed binaries have been uploaded today. Those starting the server using the "ant run" command with the source package weren't affected. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Jetrix 0.1.2 available

The new release of the Jetrix TetriNET Server is now available. The version 0.1.2 includes long awaited features such as the /move command, tspec support, the winlist, the banlist and the game stats, but also innovative features such as the web administration console. Jetrix 0.1.2 ran successfully a stability test during 24 hours on the LFJR tetrinet server.

What's new ?

  • new commands : /move, /goto, /petition, /tmsg, /speclist
  • basic tspec support, tspec client can connect, watch the games and use all commands, but they can't speak on the channels yet.
  • a multiplayer "7tetris" channel, try it out !
  • game stats are now displayed at the end of the game (ppm, specials, tetris...)
  • a web administration console available on the port 8080 (use operator/jetrixpass to authenticate). The console is read only for now.
  • pluggable winlist system, a default winlist implementation is provided, using the usual tetrinet scoring algorithm, but you can write your own backed by a database for example.
  • banlist support (hosts only)
  • query protocol support (however the bot at doesn't report the player list properly)
  • connection timeout enabled
  • italian translation contributed by Claudio Gargiulo
  • german translation contributed by Mario Meuser (thanks to the german tetrinet community for the precious feedback!)

JetriX 0.1.1 released!

The new release of Jetrix is now available, thanks to the players of the LFJR for tracking down the few remaining bugs :) This is the first "developper friendly" release with a classloading at startup similar to J2EE servers : any jar or class put in the lib directory will be loaded automatically, so deploying a new command or filter is just a matter of dropping your class file there. Regarding custom commands a tutorial is now available at, a tutorial on custom filters will follow soon.... read more
