NFC is a chat server and client implemented in Java. Notable features include HTTP-tunneling support and applet compatability across nearly all Java-enabled Web browsers.
|Operating Systems||OS Independent|
Release Notes: New features focus on making NFC more administerable, including parameters to prevent /kick'd (from a room) or /kill'd (from the server) users from rejoining for a configurable time period. A new persistance package allows permanant storage of ignore lists and admin priviledges. With 1.1 a new, lightweight client applet is also introduced. Finally, there are several minor bugs fixed over 1.0.8.
Release Notes: This release mostly fixes bugs related to logging and incorrect startup scripts. Also, by popular demand, the functionality of the JdbcAuthenticator (which controls authentication of users using a database) has been enhanced. You can now restrict all access to the chat server to only the users in the database, and you can encrypt passwords in the database. The use of the JdbcAuthenticator is documented in "database authentication.html" in the docs directory.
Release Notes: A completely overhauled build system to use Ant instead of Make; NFC builds into a Servlet 2.2-compliant Web application that can be dropped into any Servlet 2.2 (or better) servlet engine, such as Tomcat.
Release Notes: Support for custom translations without recompiling (English, Italian, and "Jive" translations are included), initial implementation of "channel ops" (/op and /kick command added), and a more configurable commands file.
Release Notes: An initial Swing GUI for users of the Java Plugin (works in Mozilla), and numerous bugfixes.
