Recently I announced playSMS 1.2 and 1.2.1 contained a bug that was considered a MAJOR bug. And now the bug has been fixed. I have tested that on my server and it looked alright. I hope anyone using playSMS is as enthusiast as me and be willing to test the fix. Tell you the truth I tested on my own server and haven’t heard from anyone if the fix is also working properly on theirs. But I’m pretty sure it will, that is why I release the latest version, playSMS version 1.3.
Get it from the download page. Installation and upgrade as usual available from playSMS Book Project.
I would like to announce that I stumbled upon something that I considered a MAJOR bug, during a project using playSMS 1.2.1. The bug was causing most of the SMS sent more than once, I saw twice but it could be more.
I think I know why. I suspect the way playSMS daemon send the SMS to gateways were coded wrongly.
A fix is on the way. I suggest NOT to use playSMS 1.2 and above until next release, 1.3 is available.
Sorry for the trouble. Discuss here.
Good day everyone. I’ve released the latest version of playSMS, version 1.2.1 a few days ago. This release has some important addition to the earlier release 1.2. I suggest for everyone who already using 1.2 to get this one and upgrade. I know, why so short the distance between version, the answer is because I forgot to update the version number in database ˆˆ, its important.
I also included some more changes and bugfixes in 1.2.1. Upgrading playSMS is easy and documented in playSMS Book, please upgrade :) Thanks.
Good day everyone. What a lovely day. The sun is just about right, traffic was not so bad, my porridge and double espresso keep me on focus while writing this announcement eventhough I took a short 2 hours sleep this morning. playSMS version 1.2 is now available for downloads.

Are you still interested in using playSMS in Windows ?
Well, someone has wrote the manual for you in playSMS Forum. The manual is about installing playSMS in Microsoft Windows with Gammu for Windows as the gateway.
Check it out: https://forum.playsms.org/t/installing-playsms-on-windows/66
Please note that the playSMS in used was pretty old, version 0.9.9.2 or 0.9.8, and unfortunately the manual won’t work for playSMS 1.0.
It’s been an interesting week, adding a new project related to playSMS, called: docker-playsms.
Read the intro here:
And read this article as an example implementation of the project:
Discuss Docker for playSMS here:
It’s been a while since we use Google Groups as playSMS User Group forum. It’s working, it has help a lot and doing its job.
But, I think we need something better. That is why I installed Discourse to be used as our new playSMS Forum.
Is it really better than Google Groups ? I have no idea. Seemingly, looking at the feature sets provided by Discourse, I believe it should be better. Time will tell ? Maybe.
Anyway, let’s give it a shot. IMHO forum software doesn’t matter much if the content doesn’t help us advancing our self. We can change back, change again with other software, if this one doesn’t work.
So please visit the forum, post your questions, answers, issues and ideas there. Fill the forum with information related to playSMS.
