Eris 1.3.7 Released

Eris version 1.3.7 has been released and is now available from the WorldForge download site.

Eris is the WorldForge client-side session layer, used by many existing clients. This release fixes many bugs discovered at LinuxTag 2005, and includes updates to the unit-test harness, which now uses Unix pipes instead of socket-pairs for out-of-band control.

Hagen has further improved the output of the metaQuery tool, to display server uptime in a human-meaningful way, and the results are already visible on the 'Active Servers' section of the website.

This is a development release, as the API will change prior to the final
release of Eris 1.4.0. However, any changes should be minor and easy to
incorporate into clients - testing is recommended and appreciated.

Changes in this version:

  • The metaQuery tool now includes server uptime in a human-readable format.
  • Sight of entity deletion is now handled correctly, particularly in the case
    where the deleted entity had children
  • Support for debugging the unit-tests was improved by allowing the client and
    server to be invoked separately.
  • The attribute storage map of Eris::Entity can now be accessed (const) via
    an accessor, getAttributes()
  • Re-setting a Timeout within its Expired slot now works correctly
  • The avatar code no longer emits supurious types in the arguments of many
  • The view code now handles duplicate appearances silently.
