  • Unlimited multi node support (for all those BBS "callers"!)
  • Highly customizable via HJSON based configuration, menus, and themes in addition to JavaScript based mods
  • MCI support for lightbars, toggles, input areas, and so on plus many other other bells and whistles

  • Gazelle inspired File Bases including fast fully indexed full text search (FTS), #tags, and HTTP(S) temporary download URLs using a built in web server. Legacy X/Y/Z modem also supported!
  • Upload processor supporting FILE_ID.DIZ and NFO extraction, year estimation, and more!
