A seq file sender has been added to ZapTerm.

Control-G is now supported by the machine language, and the chat page has been rewritten to send control-Gs. This marks the end of the cool noises.

Some new support programs have been written. A game called "BAGELS" has been implemented as an online game. A user deleting program has been written for the SysOp. A 2 drive file copy program has been written.

The ability to hold your mail has been implemented. This is a long overdue feature.

The meta-character for commands in the message maker has been permanently changed to the "/" character, from the "*" character.


The ability to read new replies has been added!

As mentioned above, the ability to send and receive multiple files through the multi-punter protocol has been implemented. The method used is the standard multi-punter as opposed to the SCterm standard.

Although this list looks short, all changes are downright staggering for a single version change, thus the leap from 2.5 to 3.0.

That about covers it for this version!
