Flexhub Beta 0.2 svn 1272 released

Flexhub Beta 0.2 svn 1272 released
« on: February 19, 2012, 13:25:01 »
I know I have been promising this update now for some time, and its finally arrived.

This release contains mostly bug fixes, but there are a few new features as well,

A note regarding the errors related to "clientsocket" issues on linux systems. I have changed so that FlexHub doesnt error out, but this version does not address the underlying issue,
in all the cases I know about as of now the problem is the limit of avaliable filedescriptors (ulimit -h or sysctl fs.file-max or what ever applies to your os). This is something that you as host will have to ensure that Flex has enough resources to run. The FlexHub can not change this for you, we do plan to further change the hubsoft to work better and to give better feedback in this situation, but thats not yet in this version.

For this update a restart of the hub is needed.

Use '!update now' in your hub or download it from the download section linked above.

svn 1272

NOTE: For !restart to work when running multiple FlexHubs, you'll have to make sure that the files you start the hub with, have a unique name. For Windows this means renaming both FlexHub.lua and FlexHub.exe (both the .exe and the .lua need to have the same name though), for Linux this means renaming FlexHub.lua only. So for example in Windows: rename FlexHub.lua to FlexHub1.lua and FlexHub.exe to FlexHub1.exe.

NOTE: Linux --nogui version needs the file: bit.so in the FlexHub lib-folder, available in the Linux archive in download section if you don't already have it. The FlexHub team currently does not support or supply Linux x64 versions.

NOTE: After '!update now' the hub will tell you if it needs a !restart or if you can just use !rs (reload scripts) instead. If the path to FlexHub.exe contains spaces the hub will have to be started once manually if it was running svn 1108 or earlier before updating, a correct restart script (for use with !restart) will only be created on manual startup.

Keep giving feedback!

Regards, the FlexHub team
