Subject: Citadel 920 released

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Although we don't normally announce every release (since we've been in a rolling release model for some time now) I did want to mention that we've pushed a fairly significant update, version 919 of the text client and 920 of all other components.

Important changes are as follows:

* libical is no longer included with Easy Install. Building the new version just-in-time from source would require CMake, which we don't want to require.
(Everything we've done over the last two years has been intended to simplify, not complicate, the build.)

* The legacy room-sharing network (IGnet) is no longer supported.

* GNU Autotools has been mercilessly removed from the text client. Our new build system (playfully referred to as "conf-IG-ure") is a million times simpler and works on 99.99999% of the computers people actually *have* in the real world. This build system will eventually appear in all Citadel components.

* Through the use of a clever but sleazy hack, this version brings the triumphant return of the *actual* bounce messages received when an outbound email can't be delivered, instead of an unhelpful stock SMTP code generated by libcurl.

Share And Enjoy (tm).
