AMP 1.9 Lapetus

This is a major release including two major new pieces of functionality - Automated firewall management on Linux systems (iptables and ufw, but not firewalld) and shared instances, which use fewer resources (save 30MB+ storage per instance!) and are updated centrally and always up-to-date.


1.9.0.2 Release Notes

  • Longer proxy timeout for websockets when using nginx, handle retries better.
  • Update() always returns a RunningTask now for each module.
  • Fix behaviour of Update On Start/Start App On Start (relied on RunningTask from Updates)
  • Fixed a NRE in the Local IM on Windows, and in the srcds plugin when building startup flags.
  • Fixed crash in Windows GUI IM when trying to install a daemon if the executable has been removed.
  • Fixed version number in Windows GUI installer.
