This version corrects a couple of potentially serious problems -
one where the server could deadlock in libc on linux systems, and one
'reproduced' on Dave's server yesterday that could cause a client to get
stuck in Mur when entering a game. It also adds the fullscreen stuff from
I have received a mondo patch from Cat with the some new icons and
such. I will try to release a preliminary version that is mostly working
in the next week or so.
Here's the release notes snippet:
Version 8.1.2 (stable) 12/27/2005
- fixed localtime() libc futex wait hang in conquestd by
moving drcheck() out of the signal handler. Bad Juju.
Thanks to Bill Patterson for letting me have access to his
server to locate the problem and test a fix.
- fixed potential problem with ship attributes that could
cause ships (including your own) to appear to be stuck in
Murisak when you enter a game. Now the clients will
issue a CPCMD_RELOAD request to the server upon entering a
ship so that data is always accurate.
- add patch by Bill Patterson adding a '-f' fullscreen option
to conquestgl. Add '-g WxH' option to set the intial window
size as well.
