Announcement   Announcement : Aminet update - October 2005
   posted by nicomen on 4-Oct-2005 19:53:26 (5097 reads)
It's been a while since last news update. Aminet is alive and kicking as never before. There has been 1089 uploads since February this year where of 295 are for AmigaOS4 and 232 for MorphOS.


We've added quite a few features and fixed quite a few bugs including Web uploading interface (Thanks to Björn Hagström), [url="http://aminet.net/services.php]customizable RSS feeds[/url], filtering sitewide based on preferred architectures, a daily update mailing list of new uploads and much more:

2005-10-04
* (FEATURE) (WEB) Added upload stats
* (FEATURE) (WEB) Even/odd coloring of listings to increase readability
* (FEATURE) (WEB) Rearranged menus to keep them at a minimum, moved RSS, Mailing list and stats to Services menu entry. In addition the RSS and Paypal icons were removed. Support was renamed to Donate.
* (FEATURE) (WEB) Provide customizable RSS-feeds (requested by tokai)
* (FEATURE) (WEB) Sitewide architecture filtering, check the Setup page.
* (BUGFIX) (FTP) Shouldn't be possible to read the priv subdir of the /new dir

2005-10-03
* (FEATURE) (MAIL) Added aminet-daily@aminet.net list to subscribe to daily updates on Aminet. Send an e-mail to aminet-daily-subscribe@aminet.net to subscribe.

2005-10-02
Quite a few changes since last time:

* (FEATURE) (WEB) Add HTTP uploading
* (FEATURE) (ADMIN) Add single archive deletion and adding thru admin.php command path/file
* (FEATURE) (ADMIN) Added possibility of overwriting existing files when moderating.
* (FEATURE) (ADMIN) Moves deleted files into a folder instead of deleting them entirely new/priv/refused
* (FEATURE) (ADMIN) You can now flame people at any time during moderation, this is good if you need to advice the uploader while fixing his error
* (BUGFIX) (MIRROR) if you try to add a .readme file it updates the file belonging to the readme and its meta-data
* (FEATURE) (ADMIN) Proper mail aliases should be set up. aminet@aminet.net is our public address. moderator@aminet.net is internal for moderators and mirror@aminet.net is for mirror maintainers and mirror issues. Web server is running at denise.polarboing.com using Exim4, sa-exim, Spamassassin and Mailman.
* (BUGFIX) (ADMIN) Fixed error with spaces in filenames in admin.pl
* (BUGFIX) (ADMIN) Added fuser check in every10.sh which should hopefully avoid moving files that are being uploaded. *But is it working properly?* YES! Now it is, by moving the file out of the way instead.
* (BUGFIX) (WEB) File isn't readable/writable by aminet group when uploaded thru web interface.
* (BUGFIX) (WEB) We need the webserver user to be in the www group or make all files writeable by the world. The later is easier as I can do it myself. Reason is so that one can update .readme files etc via web interface.
* (BUGFIX) (DB) Adding MEDIUMTEXT field to listing.listing_content as TEXT was too small for game/role/wesnoth.lha
* (BUGFIX) (ADMIN) Fixed filename length checking
* (FEATURE) (WEB) Show version on listings

@DWolfman

Unfortunately you need to resubscribe. I don't know if there is a list of old subscribers laying around somewhere. But if someone knows feel free to send it to us.

No problem, re-subscribing is easy enough.

...any chance you could make some dVds, and sell them to raise money and cover your overheads? (not for profit...) I would like separate ones, example, one with IMDB, one with
mods, one with demos, one with programs/data/text files..., and size permitting, not archived, just the stuff, so mods could -just be played-, IMDB just be browsed, etc, on some of the lesser operating systems out there. The programs could still be archived, cause they get installed instead of 'played with'.

Anyway, what a great service you provide, and done better and better and better.Many thanks!

Aminet is a really important asset for the future of Amiga(OS) since many old time Amigans will look there for new software. Thanks for keeping it alive!

Ok, web upload was borked, I broke it some days ago when fixing another thing. It works now.

As for FTP upload, that's a weird one. Seems to work for me (and a bunch of others).

Send an e-mail to aminet@aminet.net with a description please ;)

I just tried the web interface and I uploaded 2 files

I got this message:

"Thank you for your upload
Your upload to Aminet is much appreciated. Hopefully within 24 hours it will be looked thru by a moderator and put in the tree."

as for the ftp thing yesterday, i use FileZilla (on a PC, well heck, that's what I have). I have never had a problem with that program. it's almost like it was written for Amiga. anyway, i can get to the files and yesterday it just indicated that there was some error uploading. I don't want to try uploading via ftp right now only because I don't want to screw up whatever I may have uploaded via the web interface. I may try it later when I have something else to upload.

anyway, if it works there will (hopefully) be a set of Flower PNG Icons - strangely enough called "Flower_icon.lha" and a set of Guitar PNG icons. Mysteriously refered to as "guitar_icons.lha"


and both might be found in the pix/icons dir
