Lyntin status: 2/17/2003

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I've finished all the programming for Lyntin 3.2. I plan to release it next weekend. Between then and now if you want to grab the latest in CVS and test it out and report bugs, that'd help a great deal!

Things that Lyntin 3.2 will have:

  • new scheduler system with the ability to schedule commands to kick off at a given time

  • redid the #import stuff so it's now #load and #unload

  • refactoring of the thread manager, the datagrep buffer, the ticker (now uses the brand new scheduler), and session shutdown

  • fixed the EOR issue, #textin, #config

  • added the #grep command and removed #datagrep and #datagreplines

  • implemented the #bell command and added bell functionality to the textui

There's some neat stuff in here and some minor optimizations and fixes to documentation as well. It'll be a good release.
