I moved linuxiuvat and all the games to another server. The new IPv4 address is 18.104.22.168 and IPv6 is 2a03:4000:2b:39b::1.
The new server should provide roughly the same performance but it is also a bit cheaper. The statistics show that there are still some players on the servers but we are far away from the peak in 2014/2015 when Minetest, OpenArena and Sauerbraten where the most visited games on linuxiuvat.de. It is not much of a surprise though because there is nobody who keeps those servers full all day long and you need at least a few regular players to achieve that. Sorry, the author of this text is not available for this task at the moment. :)
The good news is linuxiuvat.de will be online for the foreseeable future and there is no reason to worry.
Two days ago I updated the whole server to Debian's upcoming stable version 9 alias known as "Stretch". Here are the most important changes:
Debian prepares for the next stable release Debian 9 aka Stretch. I have updated Red Eclipse to version 1.5.8 in Jessie. This will be the last version for Jessie. If everything goes as planned I expect the release of Stretch in April or May 2017. As soon as Stretch is released I will update the whole server and all games to the latest available version.
This will also mark the end of Sauerbraten's "Justice Edition". I finally intend to remove the package from the server. Of course the "Collect Edition" is still supported.
Minetest 0.4.15. was released a few weeks ago. It is now up and running on linuxiuvat.de too. I had to disable the fire and lava protection mod. If you know why it's not working anymore, please send me a patch. :)
I have backported Red Eclipse 1.5.6 to Debian Jessie and the packages are available for download now.
Just add an entry to /etc/apt/sources.list like
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie-backports mainand install the game with
apt install redeclipse -t jessie-backportsEnjoy.
