$Id: ChangeLog_2007,v 1.1 2008/11/29 13:55:33 mbse Exp $
v0.92.0 08-Oct-2006 - 16-Oct-2007
general:
With this version de default internal character encoding is
UTF-8. BBS users who have a UTF-8 terminal can use the bbs in
UTF-8 mode and should have no troubles at all reading and
writing messages in several language encodings.
Fixed building on FreeBSD, tested on 5.3 and 6.2.
Added support to link to the GeoIP library. If it's present on
your system, mbcico, mbsebbs, mbnewusr and mbnntp will log the
country from which the connection is made.
Added example telnet login for NetBSD.
Dropped support for NetBSD < 3.0.
Added support for Ubuntu.
Added support for the ARM processor.
upgrade:
Because some directories will be moved, a special upgrade
procedure is needed. Take the following steps:
1. Don't install the new source yet and make a backup!
2. In the source topdir run "make clean".
3. Unpack the new source.
4. Build new source, "./configure" and "make".
5. Run "./mbsetup-0.92.0/mbsetup", enter global setup and
leave with save. this 'should' move all your existing
language files to the new directory structure.
6. "su", run "make install" and restart the bbs.
7. "exit".
If you didn't do steps 1 and 2 (automatic updates) and you
installed the source over the old source, you will have some
extra files in the lang subdir of the source. No big deal.
If you didn't run step 5 then the new language paths have
the default files from source and not your own. Your own files
are then still under ~/english/*.* ~/dutch/*.* etc. Move the
contents of these subdirs into ~/share/int/menus/en/* etc.
Compile and install this new version.
In all macro files html.* change the charset to UTF-8. You will
find these in /opt/mbse/share/int/macro/*/html.*
If you still have all default macro files then in the source
directory mbsebbs/examples simply run "make macros" to install
the updated versions.
Run "mbfile index -f " once to regenerate all download html
index pages with UTF-8 encoding. Check the error.log for
errors.
In mbsetup menu 1.3.7 change logo.asc into logo.ans and make
sure you have that file. A note about the logo file, it will
be displayed before we know if a user has a utf-8 or ansi
terminal, so change your logo screen so that it has no ansi
grafic characters, just plain ascii with ansi color codes.
Start and leave mbsetup, this will upgrade the newfiles and
filefind reports to set a defaults CHRS kludge CP437 2 which
is good for reports with ANSI blockgraphics.
The next step is optional but advised to make the symbolic
links in the download areas without path information:
mbse$ cd /opt/mbse/ftp
mbse$ find pub -type l -exec rm '{}' \;
mbse$ mbfile check
Make sure mbtask is restarted.

In rfc2ftn if we cannot find the incoming charset from the

value.
For debug info help to me, the headers Content-Type and
Content-Transfer-Encoding are temporary stored in the fido
message as kludges.
Added mbtask commands to update the MIB counters.
