Magick II requires several support utilities, such as ACE and ZLIB. Pre-compiled binaries, and source are available from our support archive. All pre-compiled binaries are in the relevant subdirectories.
If you do not want to wait for new beta releases, you can always obtain the latest source code using CVS. Just use the following commands to get yourself started:
$ cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/cvs/magick login
$ cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/home/cvs/magick co Magick-II
$ cd Magick-II
$ cp Makefile.dist Makefile
$ make maint
Once this is done, you can build Magick as you normally would, and use
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/cvs/magick update to get any new updates automatically.
If all that is a little beyond you, every week a new snapshot image of Magick II is created. Just click here to browse the snapshot archive. Snapshots are just like normal builds (beta's, etc), except they are made every week, and give normal users access to the latest modifications the development team has made.
These versions of Magick have been tested fully, and have no major bugs, and very few (if any) minor ones. They are fully safe to use on any network, and should be stuck to for the more prudent Network Administrator.
The current full distribution version of Magick is 2.0.
These are third-party changes or add-ons to magick that improve the usability, functionality, or compatability of Magick. They often add support for non-standard IRCD's, or features that some networks like, but are not popular enough to put in the main distribution. Some of them are quite good, but Magick Development Team makes NO guarantee they will work, or of what they will do to your Magick, etc.
Before using any of these patches please read the INDEX files for a quick list of what they do, and the README files for the disclaimer and information on creating a patch.
If you wish to add a patch you have created to the Magick archive, please email it to email@example.com, with a brief description of what it does, what version it is a patch on, and whether its a BETA (under construction/untested) or FULL patch.
