 </​code>​ </​code>​
 +
 +===== 1.12 Alpha 42 =====
 +
 +<​code>​
 +
 +
 + ! Reverted back to Free Pascal 3.0.2 and magically a lot of the problems
 +   have gone away with the Unix versions.
 +
 + + Increased the BINKP max file queue per session to 200 files, up from 100
 +
 + + Mystic BINKP now sends the build date, time and operating system with
 +   bit level as part of the welcome
 +
 + + Mystic BINKP now sends the queue size (# of files and total bytes) after
 +   ​authentication and before starting to transfer files
 +
 + ! Fixed some issues that were causing IPV6 servers and clients to act
 +   ​differently in Unix based systems.
 +
 + + Prompt #464 message quote text now has &4 MCI code which is replaced by
 +   the time that the original message was written.
 +
 + + Mystic will now log to the node log if a user attempts to post to a
 +   ​message base but does not have access to do so.
 +
 + + Mystic will now log Python errors to the BBS node log and the Mystic
 +   ​global errors.log
 +
 + + MUTIL now has a function to export a FILEBONE.NA file based on the file
 +   ​bases. ​ A new [Export_FILEBONE.NA] stanza has been added to the INI file
 +   for more information see the default mutil.ini file.
 +
 + + MIS servers now show "​Server busy" instead of "​BUSY"​ when a connection is
 +   ​received when all client slots are in use.  "​BUSY"​ will still be shown by
 +   ​Mystic.
 +
 + + New option for each Echomail node: Crash Limiter. ​ When FidoPoll sends
 +   files via BINKP it will skip queueing any files for sending larger than
 +   this value. ​ The value is defined in kilobytes.
 +
 + + MUTIL now allows the loglevel to be defined in each specific stanza. ​ If
 +   the loglevel is defined within a process'​ stanza, then that loglevel will
 +   ​override the value set in the general stanza just for that process.
 +   
 +    <ALPHA 1.12 A42 RELEASED -- Feb 2, 2019>
 +
 +</​code>​
 +
 +===== 1.12 Alpha 43 =====
 +
 +<​code>​
 +
 + + Mystic now has two new door MCI codes:
 +
 +     %A - Returns the user's realname with spaces replaced with underscores
 +     %B - Returns the user's realname
 +
 + + Expanded the BBS domain from 25 to 45 characters.
 +
 + + Mystic will now inform you if you try to edit a message that has already
 +   been sent.  It already informs you if the message was sent while you were
 +   ​editing it (which tends to happen if you have messages set to send on save
 +   as opposed to logoff).
 +
 + + Mystic'​s private user to user chat system now has a split screen chat
 +   ​option. ​ A new template userchat.ini and userchat.ans are required now to
 +   be accessible by your theme otherwise your user to user chat will not
 +   ​work. ​ See the default installation for these new files.
 +
 + + Mystic now has Mystic-DOS, a built in command shell console that allows
 +   for various disk and BBS functions within a command shell interface that
 +   ​mimics both Bash and MS-DOS/​Windows shell commands. ​ Disk management,
 +   ​executing MPL and Python scripts, snooping and chatting with users on
 +   other nodes, editing ANSI and text files, etc.
 +
 +   A new menu command *D has been added but it cannot be executed unless the
 +   user has a security level of 255.
 +
 + ! Fixed a bug in Mystic Python that would cause a crash whenever the
 +   ​msg_open function failed to open or create a message base.
 +
 + ! Fixed a bug in Mystic wildcard match functions and increased speed by a
 +   good amount.
 +
 + + (when country blocking is enabled)Mystic now logs the user's country in the node log along with their IP
 +   and hostname
 +
 + + The install program now has an "​extract"​ function to go along with the
 +   ​replace function. ​ Type "​install help" for more details.
 +
 + + MUTIL now has an AutoHatch function to automate periodic hatching
 +   of files from the file base.  See default mutil.ini for more information.
 +
 + + New SysOp menu command: *3 This allows a SysOp to snoop (watch) a user on
 +   ​another node.
 +
 + + You can now press CTRL-E when editing menu settings on the Display File
 +   field to open up the ANSI editor.
 +
 + ! In various places whenever a file rename or move needs to occur, Mystic
 +   will first try a fast move and if it fails, it will attempt to copy the
 +   file to the new destination and then delete the original.
 +
 + + When reading forced message bases, Mystic will now allow the user to quit
 +   ​reading if they'​ve already read all of the messages.
 +
 + + Mystic Message Base and File Base editors now have an /U Unsubscribe option
 +   This command will automatically generate an Areafix or Filefix Netmail
 +   ​request to unsubscribe from a base (and option to delete the base after)
 +
 + + The Echomail node editor now has three new options in the / menu:
 +
 +     1 - Send Areafix request to the selected node
 +     2 - Send Filefix request to the selected node
 +     3 - Send Netmail message to Sysop of the selected node
 +
 +   All of these will allow you to quickly and easily contact an Echomail node
 +   to communicate with the SysOp or to add/remove message and file bases or
 +   ​anything else the Area/​Filefix commands allow without having to fumble
 +   ​around with addresses and passwords!
 +
 + + System Configuration now has a log file viewer option in the Other menu
 +   next to the Text and ANSI editors.
 +
 + + New Menu command: *4 This opens the log file viewer
 +
 + + Text editor now has a (CTRL+J) Jump to Line number option
 +
 + + Text editor now has a (CTRL+W) Where function which allows full boolean
 +   line searching using paranthesis and &|! operators
 +
 + + Text editor now has a (CTRL+A) Again function which repeats the last
 +   Where function again
 +
 + ! MUTIL was not adding a NULL at the end of the last PKT when doing a rescan
 +   of message bases.
 +
 + + When importing and forward netmail, MUTIL will now allow an address to be
 +   ​defined,​ allowing Netmail to a certain name on the current setup to be
 +   ​forwarded to different name and/or network node.  See default MUTIL.INI for
 +   more information.
 +
 + + New menu command "​UF"​ Edit Twit Filter. ​ This allows a user to edit their
 +   twit filter, which is a list of users whose messages will be automatically
 +   ​skipped when reading message bases. ​ Each user can define up to 50 users
 +   they wish to ignore.
 +
 + + MUTIL now creates and removes BUSY data before and after processing TIC
 +   files and hatches.
 +
 + ! Fixed a bug when using the save file to message menu command where Netmail
 +   ​messages were not properly being flagged as private.
 +
 + + The SysOp name in the EchoMail node editor can now have an address appended
 +   to it, and Mystic will send the message to that address when using the
 +   "​NetMail SysOp" option. ​ So if the Echomail node address is 21:1/100 but
 +   when you use the Netmail to SysOp function you want to send it to 21:1/101
 +   ​instead because 1:/100 is a hub only, then you can set the SysOp name to
 +   "​Avon@21:​1/​101"​ to override the address.
 +
 +    <ALPHA 1.12 A43 RELEASED -- March 2019>
