Anope 1.8.5

LostIRC has just upgraded services to Anope 1.8.5 (Stable) and is running smoothly. If any user is having issues feel free to join #helpdesk or contact us here.

Anope Team have announced these changes in this release:

* Support for building on MS Visual Studio 2010 (we still build the binary releases on VS2008)

* Improved logging facilities.

* Optional mail forking (for non Windows OS)

* Many many bug fixes (encourage all users to upgrade once tested)

As always we encourage all users of the stable branch to upgrade to the latest version when they are able to. Of course as per normal procedure you should run this on your testnet with your modules & databases before going live.

Finally, I write with some disappointment at the poor show of people willing to test this release. .

Too few people were willing to help us test this release which has delayed things considerably even to the point where I wasn’t going to bother until people actually did take part. I then decided this was unfair to those who did bother and to that end here it is.

My thanks as always go to the folks who did bother; you guys know who you are and we’re grateful for your continued support.

We would welcome more support in the future to avoid potential release delays. Contact me if you are interested.
