MxControl - RoboMX Release Index 0



Return To MxControl Index


Some of you have asked what the differences are between the various RoboMX versions and so I have created a series of indexs to allow you to see the various changes initially from my own perspective and then as they where posted by Bender the MxControl Project lead.

I have added some images throughout the index pages to show some of the cool features but unfortunately there's no room here to show them all.

There are some variants and unofficial releases made by the project to be found in the site Archive.


In the begining...



Version 0.1.1a - "Scruffy"

This version was released on 2004-07-01 at 08:21 and can be found here or our local mirror here

This version was released as an "alpha" so it was pretty much a test version to gather feedback on bugs and feature requests.

This is also an "alpha" version and features updates and some bugfixes from the previous release.
We see the begining of the "Channelist" window taking shape & there are some placeholders in the "options" window for features yet to come.

Along with this release was an update to the RichEdit controls (RichEdit_Update.exe)

Looking at the winmxworld archive it seems there is a second src released a few days later, the main difference is the version of compiler used and some minor changes in the channel window.

RoboMX 0.5

++++++++++++++++

This release fixes a lot of issues and some minor feature improvements.

This might be the last release of RoboMX, although you should never say no ;) It's been fun.
For a almost complete list of changes read the full story.

Bugfixes:
+ Crashbug on long shared file list
+ Crashbug on PM / Browse
+ User loosing operator status on rename in RoboMX server
+ Fixed channellist menu

New:
+ 3 color presets to choose from and new default theme
+ Look&Feel update, cleaned up menus, lists etc
+ Browse view now Displays bitrate, length and samplerate for audiofiles, can now refresh, show/hide path, send PM from browse view
+ Animations in PM and Browseview can now be disabled
+ Advanced WPN Setup: Completly disable WPN Support, Force connection to a specific primary node, or get a random Node from the WinMX Peer Cache server
+ All window positions are now saved across sessions (can be disabled)
+ Several new commands for operators in a RoboMX hosted room (see robomx-server-commands.txt)
+ Roomserver can now save and load configurations (including bans)
+ RoboMX is now compatible with MCMA hosted rooms but your color-sheme will not work correctly due to the crappy way MCMA implements colored text (Join a MCMA room with WinMX using the Dark-Text/Light Background color-scheme and you will see what I mean ;) )

and and and :)

There are some new hidden fun features, you just need to find them ;)

Also: Take a look in the about dialog for a wedding picture :)



The src code for this excellent release can be found here or our local mirror here

I think I can speak for us all in thanking Bender and his team for their commitment, time and hard work in delivering not just RoboMX but many other programs under the MxControl banner, cheers to you all from a grateful Mx community.
