Release notes for MUSHclient version 4.61


Version 4.61

Released on 10 Sep 2010

1. Added plugin Automatic_Backup.xml to the distribution. This backs up your world file every time you connect and disconnect to a "save as" file name with the day/month/year in it. This hopefully reduces the incidence of lost world files due to corruption during saving.

For a bit more detail see:

[Commit 2702f19]



2. Added GetInfo (305).

This returns the date/time when the client started executing. (So you can see how long it has been up).

[Commit 1da3306]


3. Added GetInfo (306).

This returns the date/time when the world was created or opened. That is, if the world was just created, this is the date/time the world document was made. If it is opened (from a saved world file) this is the date/time the world was opened.

It is not the time it was originally created (perhaps weeks ago) but when the world was opened "this session".

4. Added second argument to trigger/timer/alias/variable filter functions. Since this is a new argument this is backwards compatible with earlier versions.

The second argument is a table, which will contain relevant details about the current item we are filtering on. This make writing filter scripts simpler, for example:

function filter (name, t)
return t.send_to == sendto.script
end -- filter

The old method would have been to write:

function filter (name)
return GetAliasInfo (name, 18) == sendto.script
end -- filter

The keywords you can use are as documented for ImportXML on this page:
