Welcome to the Mystic BBS Wiki!

The information presented here is current as of the latest 1.12 alpha versions of Mystic BBS.

If you are considering installing Mystic from scratch we recommend you use the latest 1.12 alpha. It is far more feature rich and better developed than the now (much older) 1.11 version.

In general, most things documented will still apply to the current stable version of Mystic BBS (1.11) but there may be new or changed features in 1.12 mentioned here as well.

Release News

Mystic BBS 1.12 Alpha 36 was released on 3 December 2017.

The alpha introduced several significant changes to Mystic including:

  • A completely rebuilt and new looking MIS server (was called MIS2 during development)
  • New Python functions and MPL commands for Mystic
  • Local country blocking that works with IPV4 and IPV6
  • IPV6 support for outbound Fidopoll sessions
  • A new “IP Blocked” event type in the MIS event manager

It's recommended you check the latest additions to the WHATSNEW.TXT that ships with each Mystic release.
