Changes in lyskomd 1.8.1 (Release date 1996-0?-??)
--------------------------------------------------

* dbck now uses GNU getopt, and can take long options.  See the man page
  or "dbck --help".

* dbck can now be used to reset the password of a single user to the
  empty string (using the new --clear-password option) or give a user
  all available privileges.  This is handy if you forget the password
  of the LysKOM user with all privileges, or if you happen to delete
  that person by mistake.

--------------------------------------------------

* If configured with --with-gnu-malloc lyskomd will use the GNU malloc
  package instead of the system-supplied malloc.  GNU malloc is
  included in the distribution.

* The asynchronous message async_rejected_connection is now sent at
  most once per minute.

* Lyskomd 1.8.0 implements protocol A level 8.  See doc/prot-A.txt for

  ever happen) using the "Core directory" parameter.

* Can now handle 1500000 texts and 4765 persons/conferences.

* Text garbing can now be turned off completely from the config file.

* dbck -t now dumps a list of all existing text numbers to stdout.

* Some minor portability fixes.  Some bug fixes.  See the various
  ChangeLogs for details.

* Fixed bugs that caused "./configure;make;make distclean" to fail to
  remove all created files.

* The default installation prefix is now, once again, /usr/lyskom.
  By accident it was changed to /usr/local in 1.7.0.

Changes in lyskomd 1.7.0 (Release date 1994-12-31)
--------------------------------------------------

* New calls "re_z_lookup" and "lookup_z_name" allows client to list
  conference names *fast*.

* New call "get_version_info" returns information about the protocol
  level implemented by the server, the server name, and the server
  version number.

* The call "send_message" now accepts a conference as recipient, and
  will direct the message to all members of that conference that are
  currently logged on.

* The file doc/prot-A.txt is updated.  The current protocol version is
  (somewhat arbitrarily) defined as 7.

* If the file system holding the LysKOM database was full while
  somebody tried to create a text strange things could happen.  Error
  checking has been added, and the client will now receive a
  KOM_TEMPFAIL if there is not enough space left on the device.

* The 1.6.6 distribution contained some junk files, and others (such
  as the global ChangeLog) were missing.  This has now been fixed.

* Autoconf 2.1 has generated the current configure script.

* The obsolete asynchronous message i_am_off is no longer sent.

Changes in lyskomd 1.6.6 (Release date 1994-11-15)
--------------------------------------------------

* Can now handle 1000000 texts and 4765 persons/conferences.

* mark_as_read can (hopefully) no longer cause the server to crash.

Changes in lyskomd 1.6.5 (Never released, used since 1994-10-24)
-----------------------------------------

* New configuration parameter "Open files" can be used on hosts that
  support setrlimit to increase the limit on simultaneous connections.

* New configuration parameter "Force ISO 8859-1" assists in
  environments where setlocale() is broken or lacks support for
  ISO 8859-1.

* Slightly improved configure.in script.

* Many harmless warnings and some errors from apcc removed.

Changes in lyskomd 1.6.4 (Release date 1994-06-30)
--------------------------------------------------

The call get-last-text now works.  It has been broken since 12 oct
1993.

It is now impossible to add a text to a conference unless the sender
is able to enter texts into it.

Changes in lyskomd 1.6.2 (Release date 1994-06-19)
--------------------------------------------------

This is a bug-fix release.

* The parameter ``Default change name capability'' was ignored, so any
  person created with release 1.6.1 of the server cannot change his
  name.  Use "dbck -r -c" to set the bit for everyone.

* The -c option to dbck is new.

* The parameter ``Ident-authentication'' now works, so it is now
  possible to turn off ident authentication.

* find_previous_text_no is now much more efficient if the client tries
  to search for a very large number.  Version L0.12 of the tty-client
  will probably use find_previous_text_no(MAX_TEXT_NO), so this fix is
  important.
