Dear colleagues,

Mark Rivers found a newly introduced bug that I fixed with a quick 2.6.1-rc2 release.

If you haven't done your share of testing yet, please use 2.6.1-rc2.
If you weren't affected: Lucky you!

Thanks to all contributors and testers!

Dear core-talkers,

I have uploaded the first release candidate for the upcoming release 2.6.1 of procServ to the usual places.
    https://github.com/ralphlange/procServ/releases/tag/V2.6.1-rc1
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/procserv/files/2.6.1/

The most prominent features are:

  • Lots of changes to substantially improve the behavior on Cygwin/Windows. (thanks to Freddie Akeroyd)
  • Fix screwed-up timestamp positions in logs on systems without line buffering. (thanks to Freddie Akeroyd)
  • Fix inconsistent behavior wrt procServ's exclusive use of the address of its TCP connection. (thanks to Mark Rivers)
  • Fix buffer overflow vulnerabilities.
  • Full release notes are available on the GitHub release page.

I really need your support in testing this release candidate, especially with respect to the changed and new features, on systems with many changes (Cygwin), and on systems that I do not have available for testing (Solaris, BSD, MacOS).
Please test and report back.

Thanks to all contributors!

Cheers,
~Ralph
