YaTQA Changelog

Starting in early 2015, YaTQA development consists of major releases released in January/February and July/August each year. The reason for this schedule is explained here.

This changelog lists changes to the most recent major release (released in February and August each year) and its smaller releases, as well as coming updates. For the latter, this text is sometimes not being updated for some weeks, especially while development happens primarily on my laptop. Additionally, it is possible for some changes to not be in the development snapshot from the FAQ yet.

Older changelogs can be found in the archive and there’s also a log with only the changes in the engine.

Summer Release 2018

3.9.1-beta (15 Mar 2018, unofficial release, snapshots only)

3.9.2-beta (08 May 2018, “Back in Kirchlinteln” edition, unofficial release)

This version is designed for 3.2 servers. Therefore, this version will complain that your server is outdated if running any earlier version, even though 3.2.0 is currently in beta.

3.9.2 (19 May 2018)

Probably to be released when TeamSpeak 3.2-final is being released.

3.9.2b (02 Jun 2018)

3.9.2c (07 Jun 2018)

3.9.2d (08 Jun 2018, RTM 22 Jun 2018)

3.9.3-alpha (28 Jun 2018, unofficial release)

For use with 3.3+ servers only, in particular the one that was released today.

I do not yet recommend using TeamSpeak 3.3+ because of many bugs and stability issues. I also do not recommend using the 3.2.0 client because it does not connect to 3.0.x servers.

3.9.3-beta (19 Jul 2018, unofficial release)

This was not tested on 3.3.0-beta1, so you may want to use 3.3.0-beta2. YaTQA will complain if you do not use beta2.

Note: There are no notifications in the official SSH feature.

3.9.3 (25 Jul 2018, RTM 01 Aug 2018)

This is the final Summer Release 2018 with an increased time limit. If TeamSpeak releases a new version before September 1st, YaTQA 3.9.4 will be part of the Summer Release 2018, otherwise the Winter Release 2018/19.

3.9.3b (08 Aug 2018) (20 Aug 2018)

no own version (20 Aug 2018)

no own version (20 Aug 2018) (30 Aug 2018)

This version is for 3.3.1-final or newer only!

3.9.5-beta (22 Oct 2018)

3.9.5 (29 Oct 2018) (29 Nov 2018, “TeaSpeak Anniversary Edition Preview”)

Your query group must have the permission to run instanceinfo in order to use TeaSpeak mode.

This version requires 1.2.30-beta1 (28 Nov 2018) – not 1.2.30-beta0 (26 Nov 2018)! – to work.

Work in progress

maybe at some point (TBA)

Original Schedule

I don’t know yet if I want to continue to develop YaTQA, given the new restrictions of the NPL. I have always stated that YaTQA is a “thank you” bonus for the NPL, primarily my own but also other people’s.

Below is the original schedule for the upcoming releases before the new limitations were announced. No significant license changes will happen until reigstration for Sponsorship License (formerly Non-Profit Licenses) has been open at least once and report about licenses being issued have been seen.

unknown version (23 Sep 2018)

I currently wait for TeamSpeak’s “Changes to this [NPL] licensing policy are currently being finalized.”. Prior to that, this version will not be released.

unknown version (10 Apr 2019)

Original Roadmap

There are plans from TeaSpeak to include SSL/TLS. Adding support for that requires me to purchase quite an expensive Delphi extension (upper three digits in euros) will make YaTQA around 80% bigger. I’m not sure if I want to do that solely for TeaSpeak. I might add preliminary support that requires OpenSSL until TeamSpeak maybe adds a similar feature. I plan to be able to make a decision here before the release of the 2018 Summer Release.

4.0 is set to change the design to a line-based design. I’m currently working on the design and evaluate the need for purchasing some of the required icons. Icon dimensions will increase by 20% (32 to 38 pixels). The default width will increase by 48 pixels. The font will change to Segoe UI (which is wider than Tahoma and therefore couldn’t be used before).

5.0 will change YaTQA to support high-DPI displays.

You can download development snapshots in German and sometimes English.

The German snapshot (without the suffix) is updated more frequently than the English one, because the original language of YaTQA is German and the translation is only created periodically. The date given on the linked website is the date the file was either compiled or updated (depending on the software I used for uploading it) in German time. Snapshots can sometimes be older than the current stable release. The last upload of each snapshot is also listed in the changelog.

Sometimes, snapshots are a bit bigger than the release versions because they contain some stuff that is useless for stand-alone applications and therefore removed before release (see here for technical details). I also remove the ugly default images as YaTQA uses its own ones, which are prettier.
