A new version of CallAdmin is on it’s way dubbed CallAdmin 2.0 and I am hoping to be able to release it soon. This new version will bring a lot of new features:
- Tabbed Chat
Separate chat area’s are finally here. Tabbed chat will give you the option to have private messages appear in a separate area to global chat with the server. This will allow you to separate out conversations with different players into a separate tab.
- Admin Chat
Along with the tabbed chat I will be bring in an admin chat system. This will let you chat directly to the other admins in a global admin chat or directly to an admin in a private message function
- Language and message customization
You will now be able to customize almost any message the server provides automatically which also brings in the ability to enter messages in your own language.
Along with those main changes I am also making many changes to how the system runs in the background to make it more flexible and lees error prone.
I have also made the decision to open source CallAdmin and will be providing all the code on GitHub on the release of version 2.0
Unfortunately I’m not too sure when I will be able to release the next version at this stage I want to get it done ASAP but as a few of you who follow me on Twitter will already know my server failed so I’ve now replaced that but have had to reconfigure that from scratch as I lost all data on it at the time (I keep all CallAdmin code with multiple layers of backup so have not lost that). However what you won’t know is soon after I got the replacement server my computer’s main Hard Drive failed. I have since replaced this but I am currently in the process of gathering all my software and setting it back up again which is taking time.
Time-frame wise the new version should be available in around a month maybe two at the most. However I will try and work towards getting this done sooner rather than later.
