Ok, here's a list of everything that was changed for the version increase (updated)

(yes, we're all the way up to 1.0 now... boy, what a ride eh? :) )


  1. Added the views thing. This keeps track of how many times any particular message has been read (but not by who for privacy reasons). It displays it in the header of the message itself, and optionally on the threadlist (hit the config button).
  2. Fixed a stupid memory leak that I created by creating a recordset for no apparent reason.
  3. Extremely massive improvement in threadlist performance (about 5x on the LAN). The only problem with this is that a part of the increase is gained by using the recordset cache, and its optimized for only a couple days, so if you set your days to show to something big (like 10), it'll fill up the cache and have to resort to reading every record when it wants it again, which is slower. However, even that is still faster then the old system. If you have days to show set between 0-3, you should notice tremendous improvements in how fast the threadlist displays (its now limited by my connection here instead of by the server's cpu). The threadlist also now uses a lot less connections, which should make it easier on the server to display it for multiple people simultaneously. (it has to throw a lock on it, which kinda sucks, but it doesnt use it so its no big deal)
  4. All kinds of little bugfixes, tweaks, and stuff.


As always, suggestions would be extremely appreicated. Especially since we are getting more users these days. :)

A note about the source: I said I'd release the source at 1.0 so that other people can use it on their webpages, and when it reaches 1.0 final I will do that. Since this is a release candidate, we're nearly there... now its just tweaking and fixing and stuff... the code also needs to be documented way more then it is now if anyone other then me is going to understand a thing of what its doing. So hang in there everybody, we're almost done. :) (the compatablility issues are still the same, I'll only say that it will work on an NT/2k webserver using an Access 2000 DB, and MS Sql Server with a minor tweak to the way dates are formatted (sql server takes them differently then access does).)
