Lawrence, really great that you are releasing a new fixed version! :-D

None the less, I do feel I have to be a real nag about the version thing, it has been discussed before in this thread. And it is not for fun I mention this, bugreporting and enduser upgrading becomes soo much easier if we all know *exactly* which version we talk about all the time. Not just the "old" or the "new" 1.23...

A small reminder from that thread: ;-)

The release will be published as 1.23 because these are two important bug fixes, in my opinion.

That's my reason behind the version incrementation, though ultimately dragn will have the final say. This is a quick-fix hack to a version ( 1.23 ) that hardly anyone is using ATM, If dragn tells me to change the version number to 1.22.2 or something like that, i will gladly do it :)

In other news, i've just built my first Debian package :) Soooo much easier than RPM hehe

That depends on how you define "Move along". A lot of work has been done on various addons and bugfixes, and in my opinion the somewhat reduced activity in these forums only signifies that a whole lot of users have their Coranto 1.22 installed and running perfectly stable.

But then again, one needs to define "Move along".

The reason for making my post was the following. I had to install Coranto for a site I am working on. I found a copy of Coranto on my disk, unpacked and all and noticed that it had the following in coranto.cgi:
Code: Select all
$crcgiBuild = 38;
$crcgiVer = '1.23';
$crcgiRC = 0;


Which made me wonder if I was after for the wrong version (I always thought that 1.22.1 was the newest) and therefore came to the site to look for this 1.23. I found the topic but no download link (maybe I do need to open my eyes ;). Then I guessed that it was completely forgotten about quite some time ago and perhaps the release was already done.

In the case this release has been completed, I would love to see it out for download :)

And finally, svm - do not make pointless, off topic posts - unfortunately this is a place where I can't remove them, so try to control yourself. Thanks!

There is a download link in one of Lawrence´s posts in this thread, but I provide a link here as well: http://corantobeta.gwe ilo.org/coranto_v1.23.zip

And kriko, make sure you have the newest 1.23, it has been released atleast two times with the same version number, see earlier posts in this thread!

Also, this takes me back to a previous topic, that the corantobeta-site (http://corantobeta.gwe ilo.org/) should list all currently available versions. Previously the index-file contained a link to the latest "beta" but the page wasn´t updated, nowdays it redirects to the Core Development forum for the user to find he´s own way to the newest release. IMHO it would be so much better if it just was a directory-listing so it always is up to date and easy to see which version(s) is available.

Preferably with two subfolders, "history" and "alpha" which would make life easier for us addon developers to get hold of both an old version and future version if a bugreport comes in for an addon together with a specific version of Coranto.

The big question is now, is 1.23 safe to use?

It has squashed some bugs from 1.22.1 and hasn´t introduced any of the new stuff from the 1.30-series which would cause instability, so as far as I can tell, this version is the most stable version out there...

Though, if you have a working copy of 1.22.1 and you aren´t effected by the problems described in the first post in this thread I don´t see any major reasons to upgrade.

I agree to this and propose a possible solution to this. In case the normal apache dirtree listing is not enough then check out my little scripty working at kriko.neosurge.net/repository/ which could be helpful. This is a recently coded script which also has the ability to show the listing from zip files. It also is extremely secure, can be configured to hide items from the page (regular expressions can be used) and many more great things.

Well, no matter if you decide to give my script a go, but I would just wish that I could contribute to this aswell :)

After given acess to corantobeta domain I uploaded my web based File Manager to list the stuff there. I also rearranged some files (addons mainly) and uploaded older versions of Coranto I had in my computer. I left the coranto downloads in the root folder not to break links.

The file manager was modified to fit the site. You can now browse the zip files by cliking on a zip file icon. Also, if a directory has a readme file then it will be displayed at the bottom of the page.

Since the releases are now categorised, a definate link to a build can not be given. Since files now in "upcoming" folder might soon move to "current" or "previous" folders. I made a simple script for a new type of linking, it will first check if the file exists in the root folder, then in "upcoming", then in "current" and finally in "previous" folder. The user will be redirected to the file which is found first in the directories. I hope that the current links will be updated to this form:
http://corantobeta.gwe ilo.org/d?[FILENAME]
Where [FILENAME] is the full name of the file.

A few suggestions. If it's a *nix server, and someone has shell access, and maybe also control over httpd.conf, use symbolic links. It'll save a lot of memory and if following symbolic links is in httpd.conf already, that won't need changed.

Secondly, make a cache file. A simple script could be made to update it.

Maybe it´s me that just don´t get what you are after, LoneOwl!? But if a specif version is moved from let´s say "current" to "previous", a symbolic link shouldn´t be left in "current" either way, the file should only be in one folder not to confuse people with multiple (old) files in "current"...

With kriko´s solution you could create a link in the forums to a specific file, and not bother about it being placed in "upcoming", "current" or "previous". The link would work through that versions hole "aging cycle"...

Links can be created by perl, and if all the files are put in one directory, files can just be tagged. The things you can do are numerous.

It's already fast enought not to make a cache file, also it shouldn't be a resource hog for the server ;)

Don't have acess to httpd.conf nor the shell. Though, I can make symbolic links using a php script :p

I had a better idea as far as the linking goes. Using a customized error page, which will try to seek for the file in the directories and then redirect to it. Basically the same as the corantobeta.gwe ilo.org/d?SOMETHING, just that it takes it's input from the error page reqested name instead of the query. But I failed to do that since the server did not accept custom .htacess file :(

As for the memory usage. They don't take that much of memory at all. Currently the whole site takes bout 3 megs.

I am open to suggestions :)
Also, if anybody of you has Coranto builds which aren't represented on the site's history section then please send them to me.
