Beta 7 Changes

This release has mainly been a performance and bug fixing release. Specifically, the following have been fixed and / or optimised:

  • ApiLayer hasPermissions method has been updated to directly use the hasPermissions method of a Calculable
  • Group reloading is now fixed
  • Many minor changes to improve performance when loading and accessing users
  • The default world is now selected when using the /user and /group commands without a world selected
  • More debug code has been added for when I need logs for diagnosing performance issues

Big thanks to LaughNgamez for helping me test the dev builds over the past couple of days

Beta 6 Changes

This fixes some bugs that were present in beta 5 - namely that saving files sometimes wouldn't work properly and would result in files becoming broken or wiped. Due to this, beta 5 was pulled from release. The issues with /permissions cleanup still remains, however this command should no longer be necessary due to the changes in beta 5

For developers - beta 6 has changed the build system from a maven based system to a gradle based system. I've also seperated the API out into a seperate project - you can now include this in your plugin dependencies rather than the whole plugin.

Beta 5 Changes

WARNING: THIS BETA SIGNIFICANTLY CHANGES HOW USERS ARE LOADED. BACKUP YOUR PERMISSIONS BEFORE INSTALLING.

This beta version of bPermissions changes how users are loaded into the server. Rather than load them all at once, they are only loaded as and when they're needed, for instance:

  • When they join the server
  • When they're accessed via a command
  • When they're accessed by an API method

This release does break a couple features, namely the auto cleanup and the /permissions cleanup command, as they rely on all users being loaded at once.

Beta 4 Changes

No new features here, just some bugfixes that people have reported since the last relase, specifically:

  • UUIDs should now be usable in place of usernames in the bPermissions commands. Usernames can still be used.
  • Players should now get any changes in permissions without having to log out and back in again
  • All reloading bugs introduced in the last beta should now be patched

Beta 3 Changes

This release makes the loading and saving of files happen in a a seperate thread. This should massively improve any lag issues when saving and loading files, especially if your files are particually large. There are however some issues that you should be aware of when running a /bp reload with this update:

  • Prefixes and suffixes will not show up in chat whilst reloading.
  • Permissions should still work, however users will not have access to new permissions until after the reload

This should however prevent players lagging whilst the server is reloading, so they can still chat / manipulate the world and use other plugins.

Beta 2 Changes

This release adds a small bit of code within the logic for saving files within bPermissions - any user which meets the following criteria is not saved by bPermissions:

  • User is in the default group
  • User has no custom permissions
  • User has no custom metadata

If a user does have some changes to it, bPermisisons will save it as normal.

This should fix bug #695 in the bugtracker, and other lag issues.

Beta 1 Changes

This is a beta based upon the current master branch of bPermissions. It has been running on my personal server for a month or so now with no major issues, so I'm releasing a beta to have more widespread testing of a couple new features in this build.

The major new features is the addition of a global users file and per world groups.yml! This has a few caveats to work properly:

  • changes are not "live" - the files must be saved and reloaded before changes work
  • the world "global" must be selected via commands to be able to modify the users

Other small changes include:

  • addition of the username in the users.yml to make the files easier to edit manually
  • some internal restructuring

Although I did promise a new commands structure, I probably will not implement this, as there is already a way to do a change using one command - the /exec command. However, I may instead make this command more user friendly. More tab completion within commands is planned for the next beta however.this hasn't happened yet im sorry

THIS IS A BETA - PLEASE EXPECT BUGS. IF YOU ENCOUNTER A BUG, PLEASE REPORT IT SO I CAN FIX IT.

BACKUP ALL PERMISSIONS FILES BEFORE UPGRADING YOUR BPERMISSIONS!
"/permissions backup" command does this for you
THERE MAY BE A BUG WE DID NOT FIND IN OUR TESTING, IF THIS IS THE CASE, REPORT IT AND WE WILL FIX IT FOR YOU!

THERE MAY BE BUGS WITHIN GLOBAL FILES

THIS RELEASE WILL BREAK PLUGINS THAT RELY ON THE OLD BPERMISSIONS API
