Current stable release: v0.81 (+ 1 patch)
9/14/2000 Word from the new guy Hello, all, this Frank
making my first post to the news page. For now I'll be concentrating on
bug fixes and any cleanup patches, so if you have anything along those
lines, send 'em my way and I'll check them out. Soon I'll send out word
that the next devel version will be starting up, so start putting together
any big ideas, and we'll see what happens!
7/4/2000 Version 0.91.2 released! The long-awaited fix for the
installer is out. See the goodies in the download section for more info.
6/23/2000 Status update Based on several complaints/requests, it
seems that my top priority needs to be working on the install script, which
apparently doesn't work for a lot of people. I'm planning on completely
rewriting it. Once that's out of the way, I'll pick up on the normal devel
6/16/2000 Finally... The network issues with GTE have been
worked out, and things should be working much better now. And now that
school's done with for the summer, I oughta have plenty of time to work on
picking up development again. Netpedia.net seems to have endless troubles,
so I'm moving the screenshots off of that mirror and onto the local site for
now. Another mirror oughta be popping up soon anyway.
3/31/2000 Problems installing? Some installs seem to be
failing, while others seem to do fine. If you're performing a fresh install
(i.e., not an upgrade), things seem to go better. The problem comes down to
the 1500-line install script, which is next to impossible to maintain with
any reliability. If you're having problems, hang in there for a couple
days: I'm going to release v0.91.2 with a new installer/new set of install
scripts that will make the process easier.
3/30/2000 Version 0.91.1 released! There are a few problems
with today's release of v0.91, all known problems are fixed in v0.91.1.
3/30/2000 Version 0.91 released! Tons of changes have gone
into this release, greatly increasing the usablility of the application.
One of the most notable of these is the addition of a Host Manager, a
much-requested feature (see the FRF), and a complete
rewrite of the Attributes System, allowing you to better customize your
installation of LANdb. Port trunking is now supported! Read the
3/28/2000 Problem in v0.90.2 A problem was brought to my
attention on the devel list a couple days ago, and it seems to be causing
problems for some. The media table was altered for v0.90.2, but install.pl
doesn't make the change if you do a fresh install, and the change isn't
noted in nis1.txt Upgrade installs work fine. If you performed a fresh
install, login to mysql as admin or superuser and run: "ALTER TABLE media
ADD duplex char(10);" to fix the problem. I'd release v0.90.3 to fix this,
but it's fixed in v0.91, which will be out by the end of the week.
3/18/2000 Mailing list archives now available. All three LANdb
mailing lists are now archived here.
3/15/2000 Version 0.90.2 released! This release fixes a few
stray bugs from .90.1, and adds a few usability features.
3/9/2000 Version 0.90.1 released! This is a pretty heavy bugfix
release of v0.90. All users of v0.90 are encouraged to upgrade. A list of the fixes can be found in the
3/1/2000 Version 0.90 released! Version 0.90 is out, and lots of
new features are in it: complete user management, login tracking, a higher-performance schema, are just
a few. A nearly complete rewrite of the application was done, and a great deal more functionality is
(and more will be) available.
2/20/2000 LANdb CVS! We now have a CVS repository at
Sourceforge.net. Set your CVSROOT to
still maintain the semi-nightly builds in
/download/current though, if you'd rather not go the CVS route.
2/7/2000 0.9x Update LOTS of work has been going into the changes
and new features for the .9x series
of releases. v0.9x will be development releases, for testing and
development of new features. v0.90 should
be out (hopefully) by the end of the week, so check back soon. In
progress: A new database schema, User
manager, Login cookie/ID system, better VLAN support, SNMP, a
system logging system, and a near
complete re-write of much of the code.
2/4/2000 LANdb Logo Contest Decided! The logo above (by Neil
Blackburn) is the winner. It's now the
"official" logo of the project. Congrats, Neil.
1/27/2000 New mailing lists! To better help people use LANdb more
effectively, two new lists have been
added: One is designed for General Support, and the other is an
announce-only list for News and Events,
etc. See the Mailing Lists section for more info.
1/24/2000 LANdb HOWTO Matt Fuqua has put together the first LANdb
HOWTO. It's really well done, and
certainly the most comprehensive piece of documentation we have
so far. Head over and have a look, and
send him, me, or the mailing list your comments.
1/20/2000 Bug in Add Switch. This is actually not a v0.81 bug: it
affects all versions of LANdb. Problem: if
you add two switches with the same IP address, the second isn't
correctly added to the database. To fix
the problem, download the patch here, or just not add more than
one switch with the same IP. All LANdb
users are suggested to upgrade to v0.81, and apply this patch.
1/19/2000 Version 0.81 released! This version contains some minor
fixes and tweaks. It is a recommended
upgrade, but if you've patched the problems discussed below, you
shouldn't have any major problems.
