| Ami-Express was a BBS System that ran on the Commodore Amiga series of    | 
| computers and was developed by Lightspeed Technologies in the 1990s.      | 
|                                                                           | 
| Version 5.0.0                                                             |
|                                                                           |
| This is a rewrite of that system written in Amiga E. It is open source    | 
| and has new features and bug fixes in addition to aiming for near 100%    |   
 
| backwards compatibility with the version 4.x releases.                    | 
|                                                                           |
| I contacted Joe Hodge/LightSpeed Technologies the owner of /X product     |
| in December 2018 and he has given his full approval for me to take over   |
| this software and to continue using the Ami-Express name.                 |
|                                                                           |
| I have also updated the documentation for Ami-Express as many existing    | 
| features were not properly documented. Some of the new features that have | 
| been added:                                                               | 
|                                                                           | 
|   * Account editing screen correctly handles 115200 baud and above        | 
|   * Support for large partitions >2gb                                     | 
|   * Cursor left/right/insert/delete capability added to the line editor   | 
|   * Command history can be saved between sessions                         | 
|   * Remote shell (needs fifo handler and library)                         | 
|   * Display callers IP address in status bar                              | 
|   * Option to display node callers log from await screen (Shift F6)       | 
|   * Option to change file size into MB instead of bytes in file list      | 
|     when it is too large to fit in the field                              | 
|   * Option to allow timeout to be treated as a normal logoff instead of a | 
|     carrier loss                                                          | 
|   * New FM (File Maintenance command) allows files to be moved between    | 
|     conferences                                                           | 
|   * Configurable node timeouts                                            | 
|   * Configurable sysop email notifications                                | 
|   * Specify default upload location for local uploads for each conference | 
|   * New US command (upload sysop) allows files to be uploaded to any      | 
|     directory anyhere on the system                                       | 
|   * Query callers ip/hostname from telnetd.device and record to callers   |
|     log or provide via door interface                                     |
|                                                                           |
| All source code is publicly available at:                                 |
|  https://github.com/dmcoles/AmiExpress along with the documentation.      |
|                                                                           |
| Included in this archive are several sample bbs configurations using      |
| tooltype (.info) and config file (.cfg) format. These are aimed at users  |
| wanting to set up a bbs for the first time. There is also a file called   |
| aeicon.json which can be imported using the json import tool or by        |
| selecting the file the first time you start /X with no configuration in   |
| place. This file will create a basic structure similar to the ones        |
| included in the archive.                                                  |
|                                                                           |
| If you are a pre-existing /X4 user, the ACP and Express files can just    |
| replace the old versions and should be as close to fully backwards        |
| compatible as possible. Plesae do contact me or raise issues in github if |
| you encounter any problems.                                               |
|                                                                           |
