Title: Plugin Update/Server Rebuild Released (29 Apr.)
Post by: Stormeus on April 29th, 2015, 05:52 AM
This update primarily involves Linux servers that have been unable to run plugins due to ambiguous initialization errors or missing dependencies. Whereas all plugins used to be built on an unstable Debian server, all Linux plugins have been recompiled on a completely fresh Debian 6 (Squeeze, oldoldstable) virtual machine.



0.4-announce (for ALL platforms)

Note: If the new announce plugin loads but does not work for you, please add announce_verbose to your server.cfg file and restart it. Post any relevant log output for debugging.

Updated binaries are available on the project page:
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-announce/downloads



All other plugins

If you are not a Linux user, no changes have been made.

A new Linux plugin package has been uploaded to allow plugins to be updated en-masse:
64-bit: http://v04.maxorator.com/files/plugins/mp04rc2_plugins64_linux.zip
32-bit: http://v04.maxorator.com/files/plugins/mp04rc2_plugins32_linux.zip

Individual plugins may be downloaded on their respective plugin project pages:
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-announce/downloads
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-confloader/downloads
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-hashing-algorithms/downloads
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-iniparser/downloads
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-mysql/downloads
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-sockets/downloads
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-sqlite/downloads
https://bitbucket.org/stormeus/0.4-squirrel/downloads



The 0.4 Linux server has also been rebuilt on Debian 6 to ensure consistency and is available at the usual location:
64-bit: http://v04.maxorator.com/files/VCMP04_server_v11_linux64.zip
32-bit: http://v04.maxorator.com/files/VCMP04_server_v11_linux32.zip

@soulshaker No changes in the server SDK which means you are free to use anything you like. The server will load them properly anyway.

If your plugins work fine now, there is no need to update.

Something is blocking the masterlist from checking your server, check your firewall/iptables.

Most likely the one used by your server.
