Version 1.56a of AFKMud has been released.

This is a bugfix/maintenance release.

Standard disclaimer type stuff: Changes in this version may or may not remain compatible with your
older support files, such as areas, commands, skills, socials, etc. If things break, you were warned.

A new patching run was used in this version that should catch more than just source code
changes. To apply this patch to a stock base, drop it into the main afkmud directory and
type:

patch -p1 < 156apatch

This will update all the necessary files. Be advised that doing so in a non-stock setup may
result in things you weren't counting on. You should read this changelog thoroughly before
applying it.

Bugfixes this release:

Crash bug in close_area fixed. [Samson]
close_area modified to be useable by areaconvert. [Samson]
Major crash bugs and leaks fixed in areaconvert process. [Samson]
load_stmobiles was assigning sh_int to mob vnums. [Samson]
Areaconvert now spots vnum conflicts for each individual vnum. [Samson]
Areaconvert was not doing bounds checking on races or classes. [Samson]
Bug function referenced SHUTDOWN_FILE improperly. No longer does so. [Samson]
Areaconvert command uses case_argument to stop filename problems. [Samson]
Online name auth was not checking for proper arguments. [Samson]
set_obj_rent spammed rent warnings even when rent was disabled. [Samson]
CON_PLOADED got missed in previous patch for rent.c. [Samson]
Finger command was using wrong time for offline players. [Samson]

Non-Bugfix alterations:

case_argument is now prototyped globally so any file can use it. [Samson]

Yeah yeah, I can hear you all now. Why the hell was this one done so soon? Well. Frankly because the areaconvert code is one of the highlight features in my mind and having it be out there broken to hell before the next big patch release would have felt wrong to me. So there you are. I realize it may have only been 24hrs or so since the last one, but running a patch against 1.55 now wouldn't have been very convenient.

Thanks to Aangel for allowing her areas to be the vict... er test cases for these fixes

1.56a does not compile. It looks there was some uncomplete code in there in rent.c for onbattery. Removing that little if check fixes it.

Would figure that the one time I forget to recheck is the one time it breaks. Thanks for catching that. It's been corrected now.

One other small fix for OpenBSD, in calendar.c, function c_time(), around line 142 should be:

#elif defined(\_\_FreeBSD\_\_) || defined(\_\_OpenBSD\_\_)


Please remove the backslashes, but for some reason the BB code strips out everything between double-underscore pairs!

Heh, thanks for catching that. Will be incorporated into the next patch at some point.
