WendzelNNTPd 2.0.8 released!

This new minor release is basically just an improvement for those who are new to WendzelNNTPd. The documentation was improved and the code now compiles a bit easier under FreeBSD. No bugs were discovered or fixed and an update from v.2.0.7 is not necessary. Cf. CHANGELOG file for details.

As usual: Enjoy the new release!

WendzelNNTPd 2.0.7 released!

This new release fixes a problem with the XHDR command that led to problems with some Usenet clients (e.g. claws-mail). Additional tiny improvements were made to improve the error reporting.

No security fixes were applied but it is recommended to upgrade from all v2.0.x releases to v2.0.7 in order to prevent NNTP protocol problems with clients using XHDR.

As usual: Enjoy the new release!

Shifted Code Repository

Please note that the current source code of the server was shifted from SourceForge to GitHub (https://github.com/cdpxe/WendzelNNTPd). However, the project page at SourceForge will remain and all new releases will be immediately published on SourceForge as usual. In other words: I only changed the location where the code will be hosted.

As usual: Have a lot of fun with this server!

WendzelNNTPd 2.0.5 released!

The new release contains several fixes and performs better with several NNTP clients which previously caused problems due to problematic NNTP implementations.

Upgrades from 2.0.x to 2.0.y are now easy to perform and the documentation was improved. Moreover, WendzelNNTPd can now be compiled without MySQL or without SQLite support if desired.

Additionally, a quick-and-dirty solution to upgrade from very old 1.4.x releases to 2.0.x was introduced in the documentation.... read more

WendzelNNTPd-1.2.0-stable released!

This is -- of course -- the latest version of WendzelNNTPd I will release (excluding bugfix-releases). WendzelNNTPds database design is everything else but NNTP extension-ready what causes problems when using newer clients like pan. Because of the huge amount of work it would need to implement NNTP extensions in WendzelNNTPd and my missing inspiration, I will not add new features to the server from now on. But I will still provide any kind of bugfix for this new 1.2.0-stable version.... read more

Please report any kind of bugs/typos.

WendzelNNTPd-1.0.5-fixed released!

The Linux source code version of the 1.0.5 release included a bug within the installer (the path of the /etc directory didn't work if no configure argument was specified). This is now fixed in the "1.0.5-fixed" release.

WendzelNNTPd-1.0.5 released!

This release primary includes an important bugfix for the windows version.

Posted by Steffen Wendzel 2007-12-05

WendzelNNTPd-1.0.4 released!

This release only includes a bugfix for the usage of libsqlite3: Systems like OpenBSD place this library in /usr/local what now works with WendzelNNTPd.

There is no windows version for this release available since there are no real changes on the windows version. Please download the 1.0.3 setup.exe instead.

WendzelNNTPd-1.0.3 released

This release only contains two non-functional text-output fixes. Nobody needs to update but everybody should use this new version on a fresh installation.

Version 1.0.1 "IKNZ still knows best!" released

An update only makes sense if you do a new install. Only an error prevention in the *nix installer was implemented.

I also changed the license to GPLv3.
