Lyntin 3.0 (final) released

Lyntin is a multi-platform (Linux, Unix, Windows, ...), multi-interface (text and Tk), mud client framework written in Python. Lyntin allows for easy extension of Lyntin's functionality using Lyntin modules which are also written in Python. Lyntin is distributed under the GPL.

Lyntin 3.0 is a complete re-write from the original 2.x code-base. It has been in development for some 14 months now and this represents a significant milestone in the lifespan of this project--very few projects make it this far. Users of previous versions are recommended to upgrade to this new version.... read more

lyntin 3.0 beta 2 released!

Includes a massive documentation overhaul, a series of fixes to all kinds of stuff, and the highly coveted regular expression syntax for action triggers (including the ability to ignore case). It's recommended that you upgrade if you're using an older vesion. See the release notes for more details.

This is an important release as this will be the last beta release in the 3.0 series. If you have any comments, concerns, issues, feature-requests, et al send it to the lyntin-devl list and we'll sort it out.

lyntin 3.0 beta 1 released!

There's a huge number of changes between alpha 3 and beta 1. Key highlights include: completely re-written manager architecture, newly re-written help system, overhauled speedwalking functionality, tk autotyper window, addition of the evalmode which lets you switch between Lyntin and Tintin user input evaluation modes, and a whole lot of fixes and tweaks and things.

If you're using an old version of Lyntin, you will definitely want to upgrade to this version.

lyntin 3.0 alpha 3

There are a whole lotta changes since alpha 2. I felt it was important to roll out another alpha because we're going to take some time to fix some things that are still borked before releasing 3.0--thus it's going to take longer. If you have a previous alpha of Lyntin 3.0, it's worth upgrading to this one.

lyntin 3.0 alpha 2 released!

Lots of new functionality from alpha 1 (alphas are still not functionally complete--so there's still stuff left to do): lots of tweaking, fine-tuning and such, #highlight command implementation, overhauled tk gui color handling (much faster now), can now copy and paste from the tk buffers, #tickon, #tickoff, and #ticksize commands added, lots of inline documentation, fixed the message system so it's now synchronized, added handling of ~/.lyntinrc files, all documentation is now in AFT format (except help files--they'll get an overhaul to XML soonish), and first version of the HACKING document (still needs lots of help).... read more

lyntin 3.0 alpha 1 released!

This is a brand new version of Lyntin completely re-written from the ground up (with the exception of the curses ui which is half new and the Tk ui which is also about half new).

Lyntin 3.0 sports an event-driven, threaded, object-oriented architecture. It's also closer functionally-speaking to TinTin++.

This is an alpha release because there's still a decent portion of functionality to add, but the following things are currently implemented:... read more
