After much development, the srvx development team is proud to announce the release of srvx version 1.1. This version includes many improvements relative to the 1.0 series of releases -- too many to conveniently list here. A fairly complete list of changes can be found at http://www.srvx.net/changes.php.
Some of the more prominent changes are:
- Email support for some account management; users who are on a new hostmask, or who forget their password, can change it using email rather than needing network staff to help.
- A new HelpServ bot type, which is able to handle queues of questions and assign them to staff.
- Many features that make life easier for administrators and network staff, including a "do not register" list for channels.
- Simplified proxy checking code, so that it runs on more systems and with lower overhead.
After long development, we've released srvx-1.0. Except for the proxy checking, this is expected to be stable for production use. We plan to make further 1.0-series releases to fix issues currently known and any that we discover.
In the mean time, development on the next major release has been going on at a furious pace. It's looking more like a 2.0 release than 1.1, and will include more new and improved features than you can shake a stick at.
