|SourceMod News, Metamod:Source 1.4.1 Released
||May 17, 2007 13:17
|This is a general announcement filled with goodies about recent SourceMod developments.
Metamod:Source 1.4.1 has been released to fix a few bugs and to address the current Source beta. Download it at www.sourcemm.net.
Automated Builds of SourceMod are now hourly instead of nightly, and the builds are now available in an SVN repository so you can update your servers with one SVN command. Head over to the builds page to see!
Build Changelogs of SourceMod are now available. Are you wondering what mysteriously happened during the latest build increment? Check it out here (viewable from the builds page).
Menu APIs are now stable in SourceMod. This is a very comprehensive API that spans a weeks of intensive design and implementation. It offers both low-level display abstraction and a high-level menu building interface, both for SourcePawn and C++ extensions. See the wiki article to learn more! (Examples and screenshots included.)
A New Forum has been added for posting extensions, code snippets, and tutorials. If you have some isolated code, stocks, or information that you think other people could use, but doesn't deserve a wiki article, post it here! Extensions will get stickied (as long as they work).
What's up next for SourceMod? That would be the long-awaited SQL API!
As always, thanks for your support!

|Web Compiler Added
||Apr 11, 2007 20:52
|SourceMod's site now has an online compiler, just like AMX Mod X.
You can upload files directly or paste code into the text box. If the compile succeeds, you get a binary. If not, you get error messages.
Additionally, any .sp files uploaded to the forums will now display a "Get Plugin" link, which compiles the source code on the fly. This should make uploading plugins much easier, as you don't have to manually compile yourself, and the binary will always be against the latest SDK.
The online compiler is automatically updated to nightly builds, so it will always contain the latest include files.

|Metamod:Source 1.4 Released
||Apr 05, 2007 18:47
|Metamod:Source 1.4 has been released at http://www.sourcemm.net/. This is a feature release, which contains new features for both server administrators and developers.
Metamod Source 1.4 is fully backward compatible with previous versions. However, from tonight's nightly builds and onward, SourceMod will require Metamod:Source 1.4 or higher, in order to make use of its new development features.
If you haven't had a chance to look at SourceMod's latest SVN changes, here is a quick summary of what has been added to SourceMod since our March 16th public announcement:
- IPlayerInfo wrappers
- KeyValues functions
- Precaching functions
What's coming up during the next few weeks?
- SQL functions
- INetChannelInfo wrappers
- Menu building functions
- Client cvar querying
- IServerPluginHelpers wrappers
Feel free to monitor progression using SVN or to request features at bugs.alliedmods.net. Enjoy!

|SourceMod Publicly Available for Scripting
||Mar 16, 2007 20:59
|I am very pleased to announce that SourceMod is finally publicly available. Before you die of shock over this news, I would like to clarify; this is not a release. We are making our nightly builds available to the public.
SourceMod is rapidly nearing feature completion. It is quite stable and has the fundamental internal features that AMX Mod X does. However, there is one "big" piece missing, and that is the set of administration plugins which will eventually make SourceMod useful to the average administrator.
However, the scripting and C++ API has been deemed stable, and thus we are opening plugin and extension development to the public. SourceMod has a wide range of features available and more are being added every week.
SourceMod should be considered "alpha" quality, although it is quite stable, it is only just emerging from its infancy. As always, I highly recommend that interested parties read the Dev Log for upcoming developments and articles. A beta or non-beta release is expected sometime in April or possibly May.
I would like to thank faluco and Damaged Soul for their hard work on SourceMod over the past few months. "For a project that has died twice," we're very happy to have gotten this far.

|General News Update
||Feb 08, 2007 02:42
|It's been a while since we posted some news, so here we go!
SourceMod development initially restarted around March or April of 2006. It officially became a project again around October. In January, we announced that, for the first time ever, we had a rough internal time table for a release.
A week ago, we released the SourceMod SDK and offered interested 3rd party developers a chance to get in on the action early with private nightly builds and development support. Similarly, the ol' devlog is getting updates usually around three times a week.
All of these announcements are huge steps forward for a project that has died at least twice. While it's been reborn, it's a lot different than it was originally. Nonetheless, we appreciate the support of everyone who has kept faith in us for the past two years, especially GameConnect, our sponsor, and Mani, who has always been great with sharing information and helping support Metamod:Source.
While this is all great news, we're still a bit aways from what we'd call a production release. What's being distributed to developers now is alpha-quality, and much of the plugin functions that AMX Mod X has are not available. However, progress is steady for nightly builds to become public sometime in February, and we will keep the community apprised of any further updates.
I highly recommend that anyone interested keep an eye on the aforementioned devlog, which although technical, is more frequently updated.
Lastly, I would like to congratulate SteamBans for their recent release of Detox Anti-Cheat, the new anti-cheat plugin available for Metamod:Source. It has been over a year since Metamod:Source was announced, and with over forty plugins, as successful and diverse as we originally hoped.
