It's been a while since the last release but it's been worth the wait - there's plenty of wholesome Awasu goodness in this 2.0.1 beta release.
The major feature is, of course, archiving. Awasu now archives content as it arrives and gives you a lot of control over how much of it you see in the channel summary pages. Startup is also much, much faster and by popular demand, there is a feature to update all channels 🙂
Being able to keep copies of Awasu running on multiple machines in sync is one of Awasu's most powerful features and has been much improved in this release. The sync data files are significantly smaller - good news for people on dialup 🙂 - and processing is noticeably quicker.
One thing to keep in mind about this release is that the way Awasu communicates with channel hooks and application plugins has changed so if you are using any of these, they will need to be updated to handle the new protocol. In particular, Allan Wilson's MySQL channel hook will not work with this release but he's working on updating it as we speak and we will announce the new version here when it's ready.
Finally, Advanced Edition users can get their versions of this beta themselves without having to email us - woo hoo! Details are in the release notes. Many thanks to Tero Ykspetaja for his help with setting this up.
Have fun y'all!
