Ami-Express 5.2.0 update released

Published 03.01.2020 - 23:10 by AndreasM

Phantasm write:

Ami-Express was a BBS System that ran on the Commodore Amiga series of computers and was developed by Lightspeed Technologies in the 1990s.

Version 5.2.0

This is a rewrite of that system written in Amiga E. It is open source and has new features and bug fixes in addition to aiming for near 100% backwards compatibility with the version 4.x releases.

I contacted Joe Hodge/LightSpeed Technologies the owner of /X product in December 2018 and he has given his full approval for me to take over this software and to continue using the Ami-Express name.

I have also updated the documentation for Ami-Express as many existing features were not properly documented. Some of the new features in this release are:

* Native telnet support, removing the need for telnetd.device
* Optional caching of file lists in RAM:
* Configurable connection flood banning (native telnet only)
* Support for asyncio.library to speed up transfers
* Ability to mimic older versions of /X version number
* Ability to list all messages
* UP command displays date/time node was last started

All source code is publicly available at: along with the documentation.

Included in this archive are several sample bbs configurations using tooltype (.info) and config file (.cfg) format. These are aimed at users wanting to set up a bbs for the first time. There is also a file called aeicon.json which can be imported using the json import tool or by selecting the file the first time you start /X with no configuration in place. This file will create a basic structure similar to the ones included in the archive.

If you are a pre-existing /X4 user, the ACP and Express files can just replace the old versions and should be as close to fully backwards compatible as possible. Plesae do contact me or raise issues in github if you encounter any problems.

This release is dedicated to my partner Traci who was taken ill
unexpectedly at the end of 2018 and passed away after suffering
lung damage caused by Influenza. RIP Traci xx.
