Release notes for MUSHclient version 4.44


Version 4.44

Released on 29 Nov 2009

1. Added module alphanum.lua to the lua directory.


2. Changed the processing of a MUD disconnection message to attempt to retrieve any outstanding packets before closing the connection. See http://www.gammon.com.au/forum/?id=9696


3. Added new world configuration option "script_editor_argument". This defaults to: %file

You can change this if your editor needs a different opening option, for example:

-open:%file

There is no GUI interface for this, however you can do this to set it:

/SetAlphaOption ("script_editor_argument", "-open:%file")

The word '%file' in the script_editor_argument string is replaced by the file name currently being edited.

Once you have set this option once (using SetAlphaOption) then just save the world file and it will be remembered for next time.

A reminder that there is another option for editing files:

/SetAlphaOption ("editor_window_name", "<Editor Window Name>")

So for example if you are using Crimson Editor, you could do this:

/SetAlphaOption ("editor_window_name", "Crimson Editor")

If that is set the named window is brought to the front after an editing operation.


4. Amended DoAfter (and its variants) to work even if you are not connected at the time.


5. Fixed a bug where, under newer versions of Visual Studio, MUSHclient would crash when disconnecting from a world (this doesn't apply to the downloaded version, but affected people trying to compile from the source).


6. Added new world configuration option "send_keep_alives". This defaults to false.

There is no GUI interface for this, however you can do this to set it:

/SetOption ("send_keep_alives", 1)

This will cause the connection to the MUD to have the "keep_alive" option set, which will hopefully stop you being disconnected for inactivity by some routers.

Once you have set this option once (using SetOption) then just save the world file and it will be remembered for next time. You need to set the option before connecting to the MUD for it to take effect.

The keep-alive is sent every 2 minutes.
