    Subj: binkd 2.0 for amiga
    Conf: BINKD - International BinkD Mailer support echo

    Hello, All!

    for the m68k there was only a binkd 0.9.2 version which didn't work good...
    one of my amiga points Rudi Timmermans got a 1.0 version but it required a workbench 4.x which was 800 euro's or so...
    so he compiled the sourcecode for his workbench 3.x (which only costs 500euro's?) and fixed several problems... he rewrote the whole code ...
    he also added a "gui" alla frontdoor... added zip support (as amiga by default uses Lharc ... and most fidonetters use ZIP these days)...

    so binkd + spot (mailer/editor) (no more need for the dialup TrapDoor)
    + prism wireless or 3com lan card

    the changed sourcecode was given to Dima maloff he was going to add it in the cvs(?)

    version number 2.01 at the moment but perhaps it should get a new name or something.... aBinkd or something? :-)

    Best Regards, steven
