nhtsclient is a ncurses-based client for Holsham Traders. In the game you are a trader and send your transporters around and try to make as much money as possible by buying and selling goods.

Requirements:

htsserver 0.5.9 or better.
The ncurses library.
libmikmod 3.1.7 or better (for optional sound support).
GLib 1.3.2 or better.

What's New in This Release:

The version number jumped from 0.5.1 to 0.5.9, so that we are in sync with htsserver...
nhtsclient now requires GLib 1.3.2, htsserver 0.5.9, a recent ncurses and libmikmod >= 3.1.7 for optional sound support.
Please read the installation instructions in the README!
We now use autoconf 2.49c and the latest CVS automake.
Logging to stderr is not possible anymore, as it destroys the ncurses screen, which is not what we want. But you can still log to a file.
Rewrite of the logging code from scratch. We now use the GLib functions g_message(), g_warning() and g_error().
Removed the commandline arguments --verbosity and --logdest and the respective config file options.
Comply to the FHS.
Added configure options --with-configfile, --with-logfile and --with-datadir.
Rewrite from scratch of the config file parser using GLib's g_scanner*.
We use htsprotocol 0.4.6 now.
We handle a lot more server commands now.
Many documentation updates. Added nhtsclient.conf(5) manpage.
There's support for configurable colors in the configfile now. The format of the configfile changed. See nhtsclient.conf(5).
Added commandline options --host, --port, --configfile, --logfile and --datadir.
Commandline options take precedence before their configfile equivalents now.
Heavy code restructuring, rewriting and beautifying. Many other internal changes.
Print a warning if we use another version of htsprotocol than the server we connect to.
Sound support is optional now, i.e. libmikmod is not absolutely necessary anymore.
Fixed several format string vulnerabilities and lots of other bugs.
There are a lot more changes. See ChangeLog for details.
