After lot of development, I finally decided to release new testing
release of Gammu.
The biggest changes are in SMS daemon, which got lot of improvements and
is now in separate binary gammu-smsd. It can log better (support for
syslog and Windows Event Log has been added), it can work as a proper
daemon or Windows Service, it can be debugged easier (Gammu logs go to
same log as other messages, SQL queries can be logged), can reload
configuration on the fly.
In libGammu, debugging has also improved (you can now use callback to
process messages), some memory leaks were fixed and some minor bugs has
Command line interface now supports text for text messages to be entered
through parameter and not only using standard input, it has a new
command chekfirmware which obsoletes UsePhoneDB configuration option and
other bug fixes has happened, for example messages sending is now again
working on Windows.
And last but not least, SMS daemon, all related things and gammu
configuration files now have man pages, which boosts documentation level
from none to almost perfect ;-).
As a special bonus for Czech users, Gammu translation is now more
complete and all new man pages are translated to Czech.
Full list of changes:
