AMP Beta ‘TN/SR6’ Release Notes

This is a fairly significant release, including **two new application modules (!!)** – a host of improvements to ADS, an improved look for the Status page, a long slew of bug fixes, and an easier installation process for Linux users.

**Linux users: It is required that you update to the latest version of ampinstmgr or your instances will not function correctly! Simply re-download replacing the existing binary**

AMP Core

* Added a ‘Wake Up’ button for servers that are sleeping (Only affects Minecraft module as its the only one that supports this)
* Improved behaviour of the logger, handles coloring better and does proper color resets. Generally looks better when viewing live.
* Tweak the behaviour of the ‘Linux buffer fix’ trick to accommodate running applications with double quotes in their parameters.
* New design for Status page, no longer uses the overlapping graphs.

Instance Manager (CLI)

* Added option to skip network test on instance creation
* Added –quickstart (quick) function to rapidly create an ADS instance on `./ampinstmgr quick USERNAME PASSWORD` – optionally accepts a port and IP binding as extra arguments.
* Changed command handling behavior to not care as much about – vs —
* Fixed an issue where help wouldn’t work for methods that have optional arguments.
* Fixed signature sync behavior in situations where old certificates need removing.

ADS Module

* New instance creation UI – auto-configures everything by default unless you opt for a standalone instance.
* Added support for Hybrid mode.
* Fixed issues with instance statuses not updating properly.
* Fixed issues with managing remote ADS instances.
* Changed wording to clarify that a licence is optional during setup but will be required to create instances.

Minecraft Module

* Fixed log parsing for NukkitX

ARMA 3 Module

* Added support for the 64 bit version of the server (32 bit to be removed?)

7 Days to Die Module

* New module!
* Full configuration, startup and shutdown – no player tracking or other functionality.

Factorio Module (Linux only)

* New module!
* Basic configuration (network only), startup and shutdown – no player tracking or other functionality.
* Note: glibc 2.18 or newer is required. CentOS 7 and some older distributions only ship with 2.17 as standard.

SRCDS Module

* Added setting for SourceTV port

Rust Module

* Fixed some settings being transposed with each other and bad configuration.
* Added support for the full Rust map list with a drop down menu.

All Modules

* Added missing provisioning flags, required to allow ADS to auto configure.
* Moved a lot of functionality that was repeated in each module to AppServerBase – massive refactor, much more maintainable.

Backup Plugin

* Changed backup behavior, no longer injects the module name into the path (restores now behave as expected)
* Implemented a schedule task to restore a specific backup.

RCON Plugin

* Implemented Telnet support (required for 7 days to die)
