1.0.0.* (03/04/2016)

Finally here we are with 1.0.0, It's stable and it sready for your servers.

Download & Install (Stable)
If you are running 0.9.8.7 or the beta of 1.0.0 auto update won't work you need to reinstall (don't worry your configurations are safe).

Download : http://files.oliver-decramer.com/data/d ... .0.0.5.zip
  • Create new folder for 1.0.0
  • Unzip the file
  • Copy your old Config folder to 1.0.0 Config
  • Start the controller
How to update

Hopefully today onwards you should not need to do the mania installation. You can use the auto update :

Check out here how to use auto update : https://github.com/eXpansionPluginPack/ ... AutoUpdate

Basically :

You can simply re run the update.bat or php composer.phar --prefer-dist command. Or use the ingame /admin update command.

Switching to nightly

For dev open composer.json and change this line :

Code: Select all

"ml-expansion/expansion": "1.*.*.*"
this :

Code: Select all

"ml-expansion/expansion": "dev-nightly as 1.0.0.0"
How to Run & Configure
Installing eXpansion is extremely simple and straight forward. If you already installed XASeco or any similar controller you will find it to be even easier as there is only a few lines of config to edit, once that is done you do everything in game.

What is eXpansion
eXpansion is a next generation controller with simple intuitive gui that allows you to control TrackMania & Shootmania servers. It is the first controller to rely on Maniascript to offer incredible experience to players and incredible advantages to the admins.

What is next
So we started working more on our Acme plugin : http://ml-expansion.com/plugins-other.php So you can check it out in github and see how to create a plugin for eXpansion. We welcome any developper that wishes to create plugins for eXpansion.
People are asking from us a lot of things but we are only 2 and it is hard to create new plugins & maintain existing ones. We already have lots of plugins in the core.

So we are going to work on improving the performances of endMap, on some servers mysql is very slow so we need to try and make our endmap faster. For information 200 new recs on my server saves in less then a second but on some servers we have tessted on it requires 10. That is due to the mysql being to much used by other controllers. eXpansion inserts/updates only once per match while other controllers do it on each finish. So the slow down is distributed to each finish instead of having one huge freeze at the end.

We are also going to work on improving code quality, we have tabs/spaces all kind of indentation in the code & many missing documentation. I recently installad a Jenkins with PHPCS & PHPMD. So as spring comes we will clean up the code. It should also help new developpers to understand what is going on.

We will also work on permissions, so we will make them better, and easier to handle.

I really would like to finish the statistic website I started doing for eXpansion : https://github.com/eXpansionPluginPack/serverStatBundle so anyone with symfony exprience that wishes to take over?

And finally we need to work on putting more examples in the pluginAcme & update our wikis

There are so much to do :)

The Acme plugin is here : https://github.com/eXpansionPluginPack/pluginAcme

We will constantly add stuff to it to try and have more examples in it but you already have some basics for widgets/windows & chat commands.
