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 Therefore, this version will complain that your server is outdated if running any earlier version, even though 3.2.0 is currently in beta.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 (xx Jun 2018)

3.9.3 (TBA)

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.
