Version History (Publicly Released)

The latest variant appears at the top of the page:

Unless specifically stated otherwise, the changes apply to all platform variants:

  • Updates specific to the 609 Build
    • Date 11 Sept 2012

    • MAC only 
      Reinstated original 'Drag n Drop' method to install the software.

    • Updaters remain unaffected but may need revision in the future.

    • Available via Sourceforge and this site here.

  • Updates specific to the 608 Build
    • Date 02 Aug 2012

    • Moved:

      inside a comments block, so it didn't print (readably) on the "login page", 

    • Amended processes in page 
      so that only blank spaces get rewritten with an underscore (lines 81-108)
      [a leftover from the old system of avoiding file naming complications! Time has overtaken me!]:

      }else if($post_array[$start_parsing]==" "){
      is the most important part of the section!

    • Amended code in page (htdocs/dutycrew/admin/page_rename.php line 74-76):From:

      $_POST['page_native_name']=eregi_replace("   "," ",$_POST['page_native_name']);
      $_POST['page_native_name']=eregi_replace("  "," ",$_POST['page_native_name']);
      $_POST['page_native_name']=eregi_replace(" "," ",$_POST['page_native_name']);
      to read:
      $_POST['page_native_name']=eregi_replace("   ","_",$_POST['page_native_name']);
      $_POST['page_native_name']=eregi_replace("  ","_",$_POST['page_native_name']);
      $_POST['page_native_name']=eregi_replace(" ","_",$_POST['page_native_name']);
      The above bit fixes a file saving issue where the page name would be wrongly modified.


    • Took decision to alter file naming conventions used, to fully match Windows variant with Mac variant (the 608 build is only a transient variation).
      Build 609 will fully embody this.


  • Updates specific to the 607 Build
    • Date 16 July 2012

    • Reintroduced Windows variant, after a long hiatus. So it might have some problems initially.

    • Date 21 June 2012

    • Plus stripped out utf8_encode (have kept a record of what files and what was changed) throughout codebase.

  • Updates specific to the 602 Build
    • Date 14 June 2012

  • Updates specific to the 600 Build
    • Date 06 June 2012

  • Updates specific to the 501 Build
    • Date 29 February 2012

    • Have fixed non-updating font chooser from within the flash font identifier. (Hope to get this replaced with something tons more elegant in the very near future.

    • Numerous bug fixes and stuff to make it easier to have non-english users and make their translating efforts more rewarding! Have removed the gubbins I put in, as it would have prevented anyone from using non alphanumeric characters in the code.

    • I still have to go through the PHP to give an indication of which line of the language file to head for, but I will.

    • I still have to find a way to let the editor know what language to use, but I will manage soon (unless there are any SourceForge volunteers out there?).

    • Made e-commerce work. Paypal now recognises the email address.

    • Introduced x-platform system to permit testing in Windows (that is where I do most development!) but that puts the onus on the Webonaut to only import the correct files.

        • The third (tertiary) group of digits give the controller version
          (currently 10, but the controller is always given the full Major.Minor.Controller identification [and is thus currently 2.0.10])

        • The last (specific) set of digits give the code version number (and is the most likely to change on a regular basis)
