The last RC version for 1.0 has been released, 1.0-rc9

This version is marked as the last Release Candidates version for 1.0.

Let’s move on ^^

From now on I will be updating documents, preparing upgrade manuals and do some small small little things for a 1.0 release. If there are still any bugs found, we will fix them in 1.0, unless of course its a nasty one and need immediate action.

Changes highlights:

  • webservices API for admin to inject message into the system (as if its an incoming SMS)
  • webservices API for admin to add an account
  • webservices API for admin to remove an account
  • webservices API for admin to set parent for subuser
  • webservices API for admin to get parent for subuser
  • webservices API for admin to ban an account
  • webservices API for admin to unban an account
  • webservices API for admin to update an account preferences, includes changing password
  • webservices API for admin to update an account configuration, includes changing sender ID (valid sender ID only)
  • webservices API for admin to view an account credit

Now Licensed Under GPLv3

I want to let everyone knows that now playSMS is licensed under version 3 of GNU General Public License.

Particularly after this commit: 35a3cc8f.

My intention has never changed. I want to make sure that the contribution back to the community. Every modification should be available to public so that original contributors and others may gain something positive from it.

I believe this is the right way to do. playSMS should be useful to anyone using it, and I do hope when you modify it you also thought of many contribution made by others to the software which make the software useful to you, thus contribute back.

For your information, IANAL. Please consult with them who understand licensing, especially open source licenses.

Anyway, this is actually not a big deal for some. But if you think it is, let me know, give some comments here. Would love to get some insight about licensing and stuffs around it.

Detail information about the license can be found in http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.html. A brief information about the license can also be found here http://www.tldrlegal.com/l/GPL3.

Thanks for using playSMS.
