I've not been around these forums for almost two years now but I have still been releasing stuff for WinMX during that time.
One such project I've been working on is Metis. I really like Metis I think it's a fantastic little bot that really lowers the entry bar for people to get in to programming for their chat room. It's easy to pick up and learn and can be used to create quite impressive room software.
After it stopped being updated many many years ago it set a ceiling that obviously script writers couldn't punch through as all the functionality of your scripts rely on Metis parameters, conditions & operators.
This is where I thought it would be good for the community to release new versions with bug fixes, performance improvements and new features. I've since released three versions of Metis and they are all following the GPL license that the original Metis was distributed under meaning they come with full source code which you are free to redistribute & modify.
If you're a script writer and looking to do more web related stuff then 2.83 is great for you as it contains better compatibility with webservers and twice the page query performance of Metis 2.80. And if you're making offline scripts there are a few new parameters for you to make use of too.
You can download a compiled version of just the metis.r2x plugin and the source code on this page: http://www.mxpulse.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=405
I have also included a RoboMX + Metis 2.83 installer which includes all the WinMXWorld cache addresses already built in to RoboMX enabling it to connect to the WinMX Network in under 3 seconds. It comes with code examples, optional popular scripts you can select during the install process and a fully setup mxc.xml so you can start adding scripts or writing your own in minutes.
Thanks for reading and I hope everyone will enjoy these Metis releases and maybe even build off the source code and add even more great stuff to Metis for the benefit of all. One last thing I'd like to note is these versions of Metis are fully 100% compatible with any script that ran on Metis 2.70 and above.
