ABOUT THIS PAGE

You'll find here an history of all the updates I've done to the website since its creation. Of course, some information can be now obsolete, but I thought that you might be interested to know how the website evolved through the years to become like it is today.

If you want to be kept informed when major modifications will be made to this website, you can subscribe to the newsletter, but you first need to create a member account.

You can also use the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of this website to automatically receive the news in your web browser, mail client, or any other RSS-compatible software.

Two feeds are available: one can be used to receive the news in English, while the other can be used to receive them in French. They're updated each time a news is being published on the website. You can choose to receive one of these feeds, or you can also subscribe to both.

To use the website's RSS feeds on your favorite software, you can use these direct links:

With most software, you can add RSS feeds using the RSS icon, clicking on it, and selecting the feed you want to use. Some examples:

  • With Internet Explorer, the icon is located on the upper right toolbar (you can use the Alt+X shortcut)
  • With Firefox & Opera, the icon is on the right of the address bar.

Most RSS-compatible software also offer an option to re-download the feeds periodically (eg. each day, each week...) so that you can get updated news on a regular basis, without having to do anything else.

I promised not to do this again. And I've done it again. The last time I "officially" updated the website was exactly one year ago. And even if this new update brings its bunch of huge news, as you'll read after, I don't really have any excuse for a such late update...

However, I think that what is awaiting you for Arachnosoft's fifth birthday should enjoy you, especially if you visited the website while it was still in version 4. Indeed, I'm proud to present you what I've been working on regularly for several months: a brand new version of the discussion board (forum), which disappeared from the fifth version of the website, because of the lack of time I experienced with last year's update!

Even if this forum is based on the one which was present with the previous fourth version of the website, it has nothing more to do with it anymore, as it is loaded with lots of new features and enhancements. Have a look... it now supports multiple categories, so that you can better organize your messages; with the new user profile support, you'll be able to keep track of your messages, to edit or delete them; with the support of most bbCode tags (used in many forums including phpBB and vBulletin), you can now have a better control of your messages' contents... Many more things are awaiting you on this new forum, which kept all the ergonomy and features from the previous version, so that long-time visitors of this website may not be lost with this new version.

This new site version is also an occasion to inaugurate the members area which offers you a complete access to the forum, but also enables you to save your browsing preferences, or subscribe to the newsletter. If you had previously subscribed to this one, please note that you'll have to renew your inscription if you want to keep receiving it; this operation can be done after creating your member account, what I strongly recommend you to do, of course!

If you had already visited this website before, maybe are you wondering what happened to the guestbook? The answer is simple: it is now integrated into the forum, so that you can also use the new features on it!

I must however admit that these two new major changes (members area and forum) will be, to say it like that, the only updates to the website this time, apart from some usual bug and error fixes.

Maybe would you like to say that taking a whole year for that is long, too much. And you'd be right. But be sure that if I took so much time to do this update, it's mainly because I wanted to release fully functional forum and members area, starting from their first upload. And even if they may still carry some bugs, I think that I took a good time to test them carefully, to avoid a maximum of errors.

However, as I advise you at each update, if you notice any glitch or problem with this new version, do not hesitate to go and tell about it on the forum or, if you prefer, by sending me an e-mail.

On another side, I'm now going to, as each year after this one, start working on the birthday update of my other website dedicated to Louis de Funès, FufuWorld, scheduled in ten days. And of course, if, until then, the forum or any other scripts benefit from an update, those updates will also be done directly on Arachnosoft as well.

I'm now leaving you on these words, to let you discover this update, and, once again, please accept all my apologies for the lateness.
