v0.70.0 06-Jun-2004 - 26-Oct-2004.
If you run a version older then 0.60.0, first upgrade to 0.60.0
If you run a version older then 0.60.0, first upgrade to 0.60.0
(That was twice).
Don't forget to backup /opt/mbse and all fle areas!
Check if /opt/mbse/var/msgs is empty before using this version.
Make sure that /opt/mbse/queue is empty, then close the
bbs with "mbstat close wait".
Kill mbtask, "kill `/sbin/pidof mbtask` might work.
Now you may do the upgrade with "make install" as root. This
order is important because the files database moves to a new
location (~/var/fdb). Some other directories move too.
Now you may start the bbs again.
Start "mbsetup", enter 1, global setup, leave and save".
Run "mbfile check" and then "mbfile index". This fixes the
thumbnails if supported by your system.
Update all maintenance scripts to change the semafore directory
to ~/var/sema.
If you compiled with ./configure --enable-newsgate you may
need to erase the newsgroup names in the echomail areas you
don't want to gate to news.
In mbsetup menu 1.14 update the TCP/IP connection details.
In the english txtfiles and menus the doors menu and screens
are updated for the newer doors setup, you might want to
upgrade or use them as examples.
In the examples directory type "make macros" to update the
macro templates. Be carefull if you have personalized versions.
To reinstall the corrected macro templates go into the examples
directory and type "make macros".
In mbsetup menu 1.7 check the new items 15, 16 and 17.
If you want to switch running doors as user instead of via sudo
then read doors.html and follow the instructions.
If you have BBBS uplinks and use automatic uplink requests then
change the setup of these nodes in screen 7.10.
Added compile directive for full newsgate. If this switch is
used then mbfido behaves like it did upto version 0.50.0 and
mbnntp is disabled.
Added define for nodelist line length for all programs.
Added -fno-strict-aliasing switch to gcc to prevent some
With the newer versions of dosemu running doors as user finally
works. To migrate you need to read doors.html.
Changed security of most directories and files to allow only
bbs users.
In better xinetd.d system detection.
On Linux adds user mbse to group wheel and uucp. adds disabled telnet service to inetd.conf or xinetd.
In nodelist.conf changed the order of fields to search for ip
information, field 8 before field 6.
Added a new keyword 'ipprefix' in nodelist.conf to define a
table with IP prefixes to use in field 6.
When files are attached that should "leave" after sent (not
truncated or removed) they are now prepended with the @
character instead of no character. This is compatible with
ifcico but not with other mailers, but should do no harm
because most mailers only look for the ^ and # characters.
Fixed function to return full 5d address in the outbound when
the address is in a different zone then our own zone.
The socket_connect function now sets the global nodenumber from
the reply of mbtask.
Implemented the ICM flag (FSP-1033).
Fixed IP port override if there is a port added to a protocol.
Removed some debug logging.
If a message area becomes empty after a pack, all lastread
pointers are reset to zero.
Removed debug logmessage from jamPack.
Removed some debug logging from files database module.
The files database is moved from ~/fdb to ~/var/fdb.
Added debug logging to dbfdb to find the problem with not
cleaned magic aliases.
Fixed a problem with the files database were the temp file used
for sorting and inserting files didn't close the temp file.
Changed method of inserting new files so that old magic names
are really cleared.
Implemented the ICM flag (FSP-1033).
In the binkp driver, when files were found to transmit and
didn't exist anymore, they are not added to the list of files
to sent but are marked as already transmitted so they will
be removed from the .flo file. Also, after a successfull
session .flo files with all files marked as transmitted are
removed. With nodes that were marked crash, this will prevent
continuous calling.
Changed to use direct instead of immediate mail.
Changed binkp IsDoing info.
Removed a little debug logging.
Implemented the ICM flag (FSP-1033).
Code cleanup for nodelist processing.
Changed to use direct instead of immediate mail.
Added compile directive for full newsgate.
Removed logmessage in addpkt function.
Added code to un_attach files during tic import that are
deleted from the system by replace, or keep # magic actions,
but also for files with the same name that are replaced.
Removed debug logging from toberep function since all problems
are solved.
In rfc2ftn added check for ".\n" to change to " .\n" instead of
only check for ".\r\n".
Added support for *.msg files. If any are found, they are
processed and put in a netmail area. From there the mbfido scan
function is automatic called so that the message is sent out or
stays in the area if it has a local destination. File attaches
are supported. Note that this is not a gate, only put *.msg
files in that directory that originate from one of your own
Fixed logging of 0 articles in scannews.
With the command "mbfido areas" without the -q option the user
must confirm this action.
For netmails to uplinks for areamgr/filemgr changes, the wrong
password was used.
In large areamgr/filemgr responses each 2048 bytes was an extra
<cr> inserted.
No help was displayed when no valid command was given.
Echomail for non-existing areas now finally is stored in the
badmail area.
Echomail received from not connected nodes is stored in the
badmail area unless the area allowes it.
Can now send (hopefully) valid uplink requests to BBBS systems.
Removed some debug logging from un_attach, made one into a
normal logmessage.
The postemail and scanemail functions are changed so that
Outlook email addresses are parsed so that we can reply via
During scan the Msg_Read function is now called with a width
of 79 characters instead of 78. This fixes the missing address
on Origin lines of 79 characters long.
The *.msg function now uses Fgets instead of fgets to read the
With te post command, the right number of commandline options
is checked, if this is wrong the help message is displayed.
If a message is posted in a local area, no echomail.jam is
updated and the mailout semafore is not set.
Added checks in the mbmsg post command if the To parameter has
the correct syntax for netmail and all other areas.
Will now return a non-zero error if the post() function
Fixed counter in logfile that should show the number of linked
With the post command a check is done to see if the input file
has a tearline and origin line, if not mbmsg will add these
lines, else the lines of the input file are used.
The filenames in the html pages are now the long filenames.
This fixes download problems with some mangled 8.3 filenames.
Fixed a bug where "mbfile k p i" didn't give the help screen.
The html index now uses html named character entities on the
area names on the main index page.
With html index creation if the convert program for the
thumbnails failed, the html pages were wrong.
The thumbnails were created from the 8.3 name but the url was
created to the LFN. Depending on the settings of your apache
server you would see the thumbnails or not.
The check for wrong thumbnails changed from LFN to 8.3 names.
Updated to use the new files database location.
Code cleanup for nodelist processing.
Added a extra check to see if nodelist datalines are valid to
prevent segfaults on Skynet nodelists.
Does finally compile a username index.
Fixed compiling pointlists where on the Boss line when there
is no last comma on the line.
Added EOF character as last character in the new created list.
In newfiles and filefind reports with the tty info lines, also
display TCP/IP connection details.
In the wait function the semafore directory was scanned direct
instead of using the library functions.
Added user@domain login for pop3 mailboxes.
If pop3 login fails, the bbs won't hang.
If a users homedirectory doesn't exist, a correct error message
is displayed and logged.
If a user replied to a email and the system was in Own
maildomain mode, the From address was changed to the Fidonet
style address instead of Unix address.
When a netmail reply is done to a node without a valid address
we ask the user if he wants to continue.
Changed menu logging.
The exec_nosuid function for doors now also has a extra small
delay just like all other execute functions to prevent problems
on fast machines.
Added extra fflush in quickscan mail.
When calling the external editor, the fromaddress if available
is given to joe.
In Quick_Bye reset all signal handlers to prevent that die() is
called in case something goes wrong during Quick_Bye.
The fake nodenumber is now obtained from mbtask instead of a
count of tty line records so the used nodenumbers will be a lot
lower then before.
Changed Msg_Read from 78 to 79 characters.
In menu the semafore directory was scanned direct instead of
using the library functions.
Made questions for screenlen, newmail check and newfiles check
dependant of settings in the setup.
During program exit, it tried to remove the wrong socket to
If compiled in full newsmode, this program acts like a dummy.

online, mbtask did not wait.
In mail and files group edit screens, to make an area active
existing connections check is skipped.
If a node record is deleted, the outbox and directory paths
are removed as well if they are empty.
Added user@domain login for pop3 servers in screen 1.12.
Added compile directive for full newsgate to prevent newsgroup
name creation in default compiled mode.
When editing files, after leaving a file record the file range
displayed stays around the last area.
If a message area is deleted and a rulefile is present, this
rulefile is deleted too.
When a new file is written, only fidonet records
that are active are written.
When a file area is deleted, the file path wasn't removed.
In menu 2, added 3 checks to see if enough info is entered to
make a valid network setup.
Changed in menu 1.14 some labels and help messages for TCP/IP
global settings.

Changed the execute function so it will work on 2.6.x kernels
and fast cpu's.
Added execute_str function for compatibility with the older
api. Added execute_pth function to execute programs in the
