Well Ace of Spades 0.58 is out now so it’s time to release an update for Spadille.  It’s been updated to support the shotgun and new sounds files. Admin tools have also been added allowing server admins to easy manage the new ban lists and admin lists. One particular feature is banlist syncing, where the global blacklist (seen here) is appended to the existing banlist. Any subsequent syncs will appropriately add any new bans, as well as remove any bans which have been removed from the global blacklist.

A follow-up release will be out in due time to take advantage of even more of the new features in 0.58, so stay tuned.

Change Log:

  • Server list is no longer refreshed unless it is different from the previous refresh
  • Improved parsing speed (new serverlist)
  • Improved memory management
  • “Keep on top” is now consistent between runtimes
  • Added option to sync banlist with global blacklist
  • Removed limit on recent server count
  • Fixed bug when main window is set to stay on top and child window is opened
  • Added admin tools (ban list/admin list manager)
  • Attempting to join an already-joined game focuses game window
  • Added “bang searching” (reverse-searching by proceeding a query with “!”)
  • Fixed bug when displaying release notification when installed game version can’t be found
  • Added whitespace trimming for server names
  • Added option to reset config in config editor

Spadille 1.4.6 is now available for download.  This update consists more of a interface makeover compared to 1.4.5 along with a few bug fixes.  The player count bug where it was displaying several thousand players online has since been fixed (hopefully that will be real someday).

There is now a tabbed interface which currently divideds the server list into 3 sections, Public (general server listing), favorites, and recent (history).  I think the names are pretty obvious.  Search, filters, and stats have been moved to the right side of the server list for easier access.

A new release probably isn’t too far into the future depending on when Ace of Spades 0.55 is released. When a new Spadille version is released, you’ll be able to see the new update wizard :D
