Synchronet now requires the libarchive development package (e.g. libarchive-dev on Debian-based Linux distros, for more info) to build successfully.

    Previously, all nodes shared the same copy of the configuration in memory. This prevented any node from seeing an updated configuration until all nodes were offline or waiting for connection and could be recycled. Now, no recycling of the server is needed for a node to load a new config. A node in-use *still* cannot reload configuration until the user disconnects, but all you have to do is logon to another unused node and you (or that user) will get an updated configuration. Bots or server recycling problems will no longer prevent the sysop or user from getting a current configuration when connecting to any node.
    This is one of those instances of giving the sysop what he wants rather than what he asked for. I should've done this a long time ago, but the idea just occurred to me. You're welcome. :-)
