NCID 1.6 Released

Network Caller ID (NCID) Release 1.6

Overview

This release improves the ncid client GUI by adding field labels and a new help menu item.

It also adds a new line type, HELLO: <label> <string>, which can be used by gateways and clients to control certain server actions during the connection process.

The first implementations for the new line type are HELLO: IDENT: <identification> and HELLO: CMD: <command>. By default, the NCID server is configured to automatically send the call log when gateways and clients initially connect. Large call logs can take a significant amount of time to transmit, and in the particular case of gateways this is inefficient because gateways typically discard the call log. By sending HELLO: CMD: no_log, gateways can temporarily suppress the sending of the call log to speed up the connection process.... read more
