What’s New in version 4.0
Multiple Themes are included with the ability to create your own. Re-sizing the window on some themes will reveal additional effects. Additional Themes can be downloaded from http://ventrilo.com/themes . Some themes may require an increase in the font size or setting the font to "bold" mode.
NOTE: Per theme/appearance allows irregular shaped windows and per-pixel alpha/transparency
Multiple server connections can now be implemented by opening new Main-Windows.
Hitting the defined bind key will open a new Main-Window for the User-Name associated with that bind key. NOTE: If the same User-name is associated with multiple servers then the "Description" option in User-name setup needs to have a unique description assigned for every bind key with that name that is created. The description will be displayed in parentheses after the User-name.
Individual channels can now be displayed in separate windows. Drag-drop the channel name to the window.
Main window "right-click" options are now available as buttons on either side of the Main and Channel window. Right-click on the SCP to select a view option.
Files can be sent to other Users whether they are online or offline. File options include "Delete after all recipients have downloaded", "save the file in server Memory" (instead of on the server harddrive), and "mark the file as Private".
Users can now select, download, or create their own Avatars.
This option will display sub-channels in an indented view. When unchecked the channels will be displayed in single column left-justified mode.
This feature replaces your current password, or an existing signature, with a new Digital Signature that will make it impossible for anyone to guess your login information. (IMPORTANT Note: The Digital Signature is stored locally on your PC as well as the server. You will not be able to login from another PC using the same login name)
Messages can be sent to other Users if they are offline. They will be notified of pending messages when they next login.
The Speex codec has been replaced with the Opus codec.
Formats = 8KHz mono, 12KHz mono/stereo, 16KHz mono/stereo, 24KHz mono/stereo, 48KHz mono/stereo
NOTE: Any stereo source transmitted on a mono codec are combined into a mono signal.
This option, located in Setup > Devices, will keep the device stream connected after the first audio signal is sent to it. Otherwise, the device will close the connection and it might take up to 2 seconds for the device to re-open and receive the audio.
This option will not display any indication of Users who are transmitting to other Users that are not in that channel.
Ducking now supports Users with voice-activation enabled.
The icon will flash upon receiving a deferred-message or file-transfer notification when the main window is minimized.
Font attributes (style, size, color, etc.) can be changed for Channel, User, Comment, Integration. The font size can be changed temporarily using the key commands listed below.
If checked this account will be logged in as a Super Admin (aka: God Mode). Be careful when giving Users this permission as they will have absolute control of the server including the ability to modify and / or delete the regular Server Admins.
LOGGREP command has been enhanced. Type "loggrep -?" to display more options.
New FX command for "File Transfer" options. Type "fx" to display more options.
