Servant Salamander 2.5 beta 11 Changelog

Release date: January 27, 2006


  • The winner of Servant Salamander Logo Contest is Greek artist Manolis Gerasidis. This Servant Salamander version comes with his new icon, splash screen, and about box. We believe you will get accustomed to them quickly.
  • The Official Support Forum is finally online. Please use these forums for your questions, suggestions, bug reports, or comments. We do our best to reply in one working day. We will refine the Frequently Asked Questions from this forum.
  • For system administrators: Windows Installer package (MSI) will be part of Servant Salamander distribution. We had technical issues in previous beta version but this time MSI support will be finished and we will contact you (if you sent us email).
  • We had several technical problems with our web server and workstations during last weeks. All is running well now, and we will focus on final version 2.5 finishing. The last major task is support for language translations.
