Default 5.2.9u

The moment some of you have been waiting for... see thread above for current limitations in 'u'nregistered build. Note that unregistered version will not be updated as often as registered version, and therefore may be vulnerable to denial of service attacks.

Beta 5.2.4-5.2.9
- Fix: Broken ident/ssl

Beta 5.2.4
- New: [ioFTPD] Encryption_Thread_Count
- Fix: Per client(/user) speed limits weren't accurate (during first two seconds of send/receive, user could get twice the amount of bandwidth allocated for him)
- Fix: Minor bug in ssl_accept routine (could cause connections to be cut off)
- Fix: Filesize for files between 2 & 4gigabytes was shown incorrectly (negative value)
- Change: ioFTPD uses now 2io threads per processor, when Io_Thread_Count is higher than the cpu count
- Change: Crc32 & ssl encryption was moved to encryption threads (better scalability/performance with ssl)
- Change: Minor optimizations to improve scalability under heavy load conditions

Beta 5.2.3
- New: Client_inbound_bandwidth & Client_outbound_bandwidth
- New: Ident reader capped to 1kb/sec in & out (should be plenty enough)
- Fix: User inbound speedlimit (upload) wasn't working properly
- Change: Inbound_bandwidth => Global_inbound_bandwidth
- Change: Outbound_bandwidth => Global_outbound_bandwidth

Beta 5.2.0
- New: Speedlimits, per user & per device
- New: change <user> speedlimit <dn limit> <up limit>
- New: %[limit(up_speed/dn_speed/ftp_logins/http_logins/telnet_logins)] cookie
- Fix: Scheduled tcl scripts cause ioftpd to crash

Beta 5.1.17
- Fix: Error in DataCopy window message processing
- Change: Compiled using intel compiler
- Change: SITE Command executor is now "smarter":

Beta 5.1.15
- Fix: Removed ugly message box
- Fix: Added several sanity checks to datacopy process (freeing memory area used by pending call, will not cause io to crash anymore)
- Change: Added dedicated threads (2) of higher priority (normal priority) for interprocess datacopying to avoid dead locking, when all worker threads are in use

Beta 5.1.13
- Fix: Infinite loops caused by symbolic links, no longer cause system to crash (set max depth for cwd command to 25)
- Fix: Path resolver returned wrong path in certain (rare) circumstances
- New: iTCL "client" command

Beta 5.1.11
- New: FIFO queues for disk-access

Beta 5.1.9
- Fix: Infinite loop, when stopping active timer that was queueing job for client
- Change: Optimized client job managment

Beta 5.1.8
- Fix: AsyncSelectCancel() was bugged (it didn't wait for timer to stop)
- Fix: Log system had severe bug (logging in io isn't simple writefile().. to minimize thread usage, it uses max 1 worker thread for logging & queues rest of items)
- Fix: Pending AcceptEx() calls failed, when worker threads was shut down
- Fix: Invalid message variables caused crash (those that didn't use $ prefix)
- Change: Optimized timers (I don't think they can be optimized any further)
- Change: Min_Worker_Threads & Max_Worker_Threads ini values were replaced with Worker_Thread_Count

Beta 5.1.7
- Fix: Timers may cause dead-locks
- Fix: Socket closing was not "properly" synchronized, which caused wrong sockets to be closed
- Change: Rewrote listing routine
- Change: Optimized timers
- Change: Optimized message based connect&accept even further
- Change: Several minor optimizations & fixes not worth listing
- New: STAT command
- Fix: Master could not ADDIP on another master

Beta 5.1.5
- New: Configuration file can be specified as parameter to executable (ioftpd.exe d:\foo\ioftpd.ini)
- Fix: TCL module did not return any value
- Fix: Erase of file smaller than 1kb with Modify_Stats_On_Delete caused divide by zero (broke stats)
- Change: Optimized job managment + added priorities for jobs
- Change: Connections are now accepted using AcceptEx
- Change: Optimized message-based socket use (Connect/Accept)
- Change: Active mode transfers are bound to server port - 1
- Change: Some minor optimizations (not worth listing)

Beta 5.1.0
- New: Module support enabled (cookies, events)
- New: More/All headers now in source\include
- Change: Mount tables (.vfs) are no longer cached per session, but per daemon instance (uses less memory)
- Change: Messagefile parser (aka cookieparser) rewritten
- Change: Event handler rewritten
- Notice: "<EventName/SiteCommand> = ..\script.itcl" changed to "<EventName/SiteCommand> = TCL ..\script.itcl"
- Notice: "<EventName/SiteCommand> = ..\script.exe" changed to "<EventName/SiteCommand> = EXEC ..\script.exe"

Beta 5.0.1-13
- Fix: Can't remember..

- Fix: Who shows paths properly

- Fix: Too much memory was allocated for ident array
- Fix: Telnetd fixed
- Change: text\FTP 'login.msg' was renamed to 'welcome.msg'
- Change: passwd & group file format changed, use http://www.ioftpd.com/passwdconv for conversion (works for both)

I am still using the unregistered version till now..for 2 reasons..

one : I want to learn how to use it properly (for ex: going from serve-u or G6 to ioftp is not the easiest)

two : Was actually waitting /hoping for a GUI..

Planning to pay and register at one point for sure..the speed and differnce between it and other servers is very substantial.
keep up the great work guys.. u have a definte winner here.

yes indeed I have found that out a little earlier while browsing the forums..
found lots of answers to things that i had problems with as well.

I think having the chance to use an unregistered version gives an excellent opportunity to learn the program and to test its features.

I would actually be happy with just the http service of it, but it sort of crashes everytime i try to add groups or users from there.
But i also read that the http part still needs a lot of work.
so using flashfxp for that part right now.
And the more i learn and understand the features.. the more it seems logical to pay for it, and get the extra features and support for it.

Thankyou for the reply

i think most of those who wants a gui wants it because they think it's very hard to manage a server via site commands etc, and yes it is in the beginning, but when you know how to do it it's actually very (very) good (and easy). and as a bonus d1 doesn't need to worry about a badly made gui that ruins the daemon (im starting to think on raiden ^^), plus d1 can focus on making the daemon itself better instead of making nice layouts on the gui etc..

The app/script ioGui by ADDiCT is very good for managing user and group settings etc. And yes, Dark0n3 developes ioFTPD core to perfection. No built-in GUI is needed. It can be coded by third party. Image having a handful of different GUI layouts to choose from.
