Many new changes have been introduced to QM
2.8-2 , including additional compatibility options.
Release 2.8-0 renames the subfiles that form a dynamic hashed file. In earlier releases these were ~0, ~1, etc. They have been renamed to %0, %1, etc because two PC cleanup utilities have been indentified that incorrectly assume that any files with names commencing with a tilde are temporary items that can be deleted.
now attempts to use telnet negotiation to determine the terminal type in use for users entering QM
directly from a network. If this fails, it then falls back on the previous method of using the TERM environment variable.
The Personal Version of QM
now allows simulataneous use of one interactive session, one QMClient
session and one phantom process.
