| 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 5.3.0                                                             |
|                                                                           |
| 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 in this   | 
| release are:                                                              | 
|                                                                           | 
|     * Internal Zmodem support (xprzmodem.library no longer needed         |
|                                                                           |
|     * Extra modules for connecting to FTN and QWK mail networks           |
|                                                                           |
|     * Password reset via email                                            |
|                                                                           |
|     * 16 colour screen mode support                                       |
|                                                                           |
|     * Larger partition support (now into the terrabyte range)             |
|                                                                           |
|     * Estimated download times based on previous CPS                      |
|                                                                           |
|     * MCI codes to play back ANSI animations at a slower speed            |
|                                                                           |
| 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.                                               |
|                                                                           |

|      This release is dedicated to my partner Traci who was taken ill      |
|      unexpectedly at the end of 2018 and passed away after suffering      |
