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

      Apparently these menu files were created exactly 80 columns wide. <shrug>
      
      This fixes issue 257 reported by Keyop.

      Optimize color_value() and fix RIP reset · 75bd66f1
      Deucе authored
      color_value() is in the hot drawing path, so should be as fast
      as possible... remove all the bit shifting and have the palette
      just be colour values.
      
      For RIP, the reset wasn't resetting the global coordinates, so a
      scaled image would cause everything to be scaled down later.

      Store contents (list) of archive files in filebase (in the "msg tail") · 5374a113
      Rob Swindell authored
      This will allow fast/easy display of archive contents without actually reading the archive files.
      
      Introduces some new functions:
      - list_archive_contents()
      - smb_adddfile_withlist()
      
      A new SMB convenience variable ("tail", aliased as "content" for a file).
      A new file detail level ("file_detail_content", exposed in JS as FileBase.DETAIL.CONTENTS) which adds a "content" array property to file metadata objects for JS FileBase.get().
      
      Files already added to the new filebases won't have this archive content automatically - I'm looking into that now (likely a new or updated JS script to run).

      Implement disabled text for RIP. · b9d43a4c
      Deucе authored
      We still need to pass ANSI through to the parser though because
      Synchronet goes apeshit if it doesn't get a response to a location
      request... it tries twice and eats any data it receives that isn't
      a valid position report, which obviously breaks menus.
      
      It's also very weird that on Booch's BBS at least it's sent during
      the main menu display rather than just on answering.  Not sure why
      this is, but it means we can't implement the RIP requirement of
      "ignoring all non-RIPscrip bytes" with a zero window without digging
      deep into Synchronet guts.

      Add a separate "area tag" string configured per sub-board · fa0a154e
      Rob Swindell authored
      According to  Lupine Furmen (FURFOL):
      It says in the help that the field is used for both the Newsgroup name AND the
      Fido Echo-tag.
      
      These really should be 2 different fields.
      
      Now, the echo/area tag is usually configured in the area file (areas.bbs) and so does not need to match *any* string configured in SCFG. But since an area file *can* be generated from SCFG (Export Areas option) and its possible to use SBBSecho withOUT an area file at all, then it's possible someone would like to have their FidoNet-style area tags configured different from any other strings related to a sub-board (e.g. newsgroup name) - why? I'm not clear, but there it is: another string that  a sysop can set (or not).
      
      Since I'd recently added an area tag field per directory for use by hatchit.js, this does create some logical symmetry. And there were enough free bytes per-sub in the msgs.cnf, so why not.
