This version of ConfUMS needs the public beta-version of UMSServer v11 to run.
It can be found on ftp.dfv.rwth-aachen.de in /pub/amiga/UMS, currently *not*
on Aminet!

Overview
********

   What is ConfUMS?

   ConfUMS uses the internal functions of the ums.library for editing
the `ums.config'. This is done so transparently that once you have
started using ConfUMS, you may never take a look at your `ums.config'
again. Well, okay, user-, alias- and netgroups-maintenance is not
possible right now, but will be added soon.

   ConfUMS v1.1a will remain the last release to support old v10 of
UMS-Server. ConfUMS v1.2 requires at least v11 to run as its vastly
enhanced functionability arises directly from improvement of the
UMS-Server. A public beta version of UMS v11 has recently been released,
bringing as powerful innovations as:

   * full control over server variables, i.e. Read- and WriteAccess,
     Options, Aka etc.

   * variable locking: a secure way to prevent two users from editing
     the same variable at the same time in a network environment.

   * config-modification "on the net" - you may edit your personal
     configuration in an Envoy network environment without actually
     knowing where the `ums.config' hides.

   In a local environment ConfUMS offers many functions to comfortably
modify your UMS configuration. Three editors are available: for
single-line variables, variables that consist of multiple lines and so
called "listkind" variables e.g. the expire.grouplist.

   As stated above more v11 features will be supported in the future,
but only if I get some feedback from ConfUMS users! *Simply write me a
mail!*

Revision history since last public release (v1.1a, 21.07.94):
*************************************************************

v1.2 (24.12.94)

 * ConfUMS requires a minimum of UMS v11 and MUI v2.2 to run. UMS v10
   is not supported any longer!

 * the error-handling has been greatly improved: if a config variable
   cannot be written to ums.config e.g. due to a locked config,
   ConfUMS lets you try again instead of jumping back to the
   main-window.

 * employs memory pools, thus reduces fragmentation of main memory.

 * now really respects the login-guide as described in ums.doc

 * relogin-function: change the user logged into ConfUMS without
   restarting it. (as requested by Tron on the UMS meeting)

 * when changing the password, you now have two stringgadgets to
   enter the new one. Both string have to match otherwise the
   password will not be changed. (requested by Mario Kemper)

 * the multiline editor now lets you re-edit a variable by using the
   "Start-Editor" button, accompanied by the config var
   ConfUMS.MLStartEditor.

 * it's now possible to run two ConfUMSes on one machine, e.g. on
   different message bases or for different users.

 * the contents of the preview window can be shown in UMS' quoted
   format.

 * many "cosmetic" changes, let's call this the "Ellen Betrix
   Release" (hi Golle :-)
