[CEntrilo] v3.0 looks possible


yeah, good news for you ;)
Although Luigi Auriemma said, he wont touch Ventrilo v3.0, he did it and released some code to authenticate with the servers. For you that means, there will perhaps be a CEntrilo v3.0 soon.
Thanks, mate!

But there are other (serious) things i have to do:
That CEntrilo code is ugly as hell! damn. its so ugly i really dont want to put that code on my page. Its grown from a small UDP proxy, to a Ventrilo Decoder, then a Ventrilo Bot, later an ISDN Gateway and finally a client for PDA’s.
You know what i mean? The whole code design doesnt fit. Totally mixed up absolutely different coding styles, different approaches and finally even mixing classless code with classes. There’s also no distinguishing regarding MVC or some layer separation. nada.

Why i tell that?
Some weeks ago i received a question if i dont want to GPL CEntrilo and let others help with development.
To be honest – CEntrilo is already GPL’ed. There were some persons (3? 4?) who asked for the source and of course i sent it. (you remember GPL? it doesnt prohibit sharing just binaries – it says you must give out the sourcecode if one asks for it)
Uh yes, i didnt add any license dialog – sorry for that – its my fault, but MDA’s dont have too much place for that button :)

So yes, its GPL’ed but no, i dont want to put the source on my page.
People who ask for the src, will of course get it.

But ok, i think i’ll merge the V3.0 code into my source and update the protocol code also (which is the most time consuming)

now i will read through aluigi’s code – i’ll post some news if something happened :]

    hi! i just found your site searching for a ventrilo client for PPC… i really would die for one (a client). i am getting a HTC Apache phone and putting WM6.1 on it… i just would find it so awesome to be able to be on ventrilo with my friends while im out in public using my phone.

    i really hope that you can soon develope a CEntrilo compatible with the new Ventrilo 3.0 servers!

    check out my site… http://www.tutorialninjas.net

    good luck, keep up the good work… hopefully an update soon!

    That is the best news I’ve heard in a long time. I cannot wait! Thank you so much for putting in the effort. I will be sure to drop another donation for your time after this is released.

    I would rly like to see a new one but will it be backwords compatible? cause I use allot of old servers so dont rly need a new version but automatic reconnect and stuff would be nice.. cause my wifi intends to drop allot if me phone goes into standby :P

    I’m considering making an attempt at parsing ventrilo packets in erlang. You and Luigi Auriemma seem to be the only people with any info on the protocol so could you send me the source to CEntrilo?

    Maybe we can organize a group of CEntrilo beta testers… I’m sure CEntrilo developers could use a team of testers with various pocket pc’s The we can get some input on which pocket pc’s are sutible for voice communications.
