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

      Update sound (WAV) file play-on-event support in Windows build · f26a82b0
      Rob Swindell authored
      A "hack attempt" sound file is now supported in the Terminal Server, Mail Server,  and Services.
      "login" and "logoff" sound files are now supported in the Terminal Server, FTP Server, Web Server, Mail Server, and Services.
      This enhancement fixes Issue #157
      The following sound files may now be configured in the [Global] section of the ctrl/sbbs.ini file, if desired to set the default sound files for all servers/services in on place:
      - AnswerSound
      - LoginSound
      - LogoutSound
      - HangupSound
      - HackAttemptSound

      Use default calling convention (__cdecl) for DLL funcs in Borland builds. · bf82a889
      rswindell authored
      Fix age-old bug with Borland/C++Builder built executables (Windows):
      to achieve compatibility with  the default __cdecl symbol naming rules of
      Visual C++, we were using __stdcall convention for DLL functions when
      building code with Borland/C++Builder tools and using the default (__cdecl)
      convention when building with Microsoft (Visual C++) tools. Although this
      allowed symbols to be located when linking, the calling convention mismatch
      caused a stack cleanup issue that very rarely manifested itself in a bug
      (e.g. exception of some kind in sbbsctrl.exe, usually). Mismatching
      the calling conventions was unintentional (I thought the default for MSVC
      DLL functions was __stdcall) - but since the calls to MSVC-Built DLL functions
      worked 99% of the time, I didn't realize there was an underlying issue. So I
      now work-around the DLL symbol naming mismatch using a command-line option (-a)
      passed to implib in src/sbbs3/ctrl/makelibs.bat
      I had previously worked-around exceptions when calling MSVC DLL functions in
      sbbsctrl.exe by calling the problematic DLL functions from a timer tick handler
      rather than a user control (e.g. button) event handler. Those work-arounds can
      now be removed.
      The erroneous "DLLCALL" definition design pattern was replicated (copy/pasted)
      to many other projects' header files in In the future, we may
      want to just remove all instances of *CALL since they now serve no purpose and
      appear as useless "Kruft" (but do allow us to more-easily globally change DLL
      function calling conventions if/when necessary in the future).

      Implement IP temporary ban: · 7da4af1b
      rswindell authored
      By default, after 20 consecutive (unique) failed login attempts, *or*
      a failed login attempt wtih a name from the name.can filter file.
      The default temporary ban duration is 10 minutes.
      The temporary ban thershold is configurable via LoginAttemptTempBanThreshold
      in sbbs.ini and the ban duration is configurable via LoginAttemptTempBanDuration
      (in seconds).

      Update to 3.17a · dbbfabf1
      deuce authored
      New Features:
      - Multiple bindings for each service
        Use comma-separated interfaces on Interface= lines in the ini file.
        Default is now ",::"
      - IPv6 support
      - TLS support for the webserver and (non-static) services
        New TLS option in services.ini (ie: Options=TLS)
      - Decrease LEN_SCAN_CMD to 35 chars, increase the CID field to 45 chars,
        and rename the MAIL_CMD string to IPADDR.  I think this frees up the
        note field for SysOp use.

      Replace the "log mask" concept with a much simpler "log level" concept: · 76a64bca
      rswindell authored
      instead of a bit-mask representing all the log levels to actually "see", use a
      single numeric (or nmemonic) level value (ERROR, WARNING, NOTICE, etc.)
      and less severe log levels (levels with a higher numeric value) will be filtered
      (e.g. not "seen" or logged). It's the basic syslog() concept.

      Using js_startup_t for the JS startup parameters for all servers/services. · b8ce6208
      rswindell authored
      Created sbbs_read_js_settings() and sbbs_set_js_settings() to read and write
      all settings to/from .ini files in a modular fashion.
      This is a precursor to implementing support for JavaScriptThreadStack (limit)
      support for all JS-enabled servers and services (working around the ircd bug).

      Overhaul of temp directory usage: · 7b29a54b
      rswindell authored
      No more temp files in data or data/temp.
      ctrl_dir/../temp (e.g. sbbs/temp) is the new default temp dir.
      Each server has its own separately configurable temp dir.
      BBS events (e.g. QWK packet processing) now have their own exclusive-use
      temp dir (e.g. sbbs/temp/event).
      All server threads will attempt to create and verify the validity of their temp dir.
      System temp dir is only the default global temp dir for Unix (i.e. /tmp), since
      the Windows default temp dir (e.g. C:\DOCUME~1\Rob\LOCALS~1\Temp) is not
      particularly friendly or attractive.

      Eliminated recycle_sem from startup structures (not used anywhere). · aaad4b85
      rswindell authored
      Added shutdown_now to startup structures, used for nice shutdowns
      (when server isn't in use) as opposed to terminate, which is immediate.
      shutdown semaphores files are only acted on when server not in use.
      Bugfix: server.client_add/remove() methods now adjust the service's client
      counter accordingly so static services (like ircd.js) won't be recycled or
      shutdown while in use (any more).
