TeamSpeak 3 Client Version Released
by Ben on Oct 25, 2012

We are happy to announce the release of version of the TeamSpeak 3 Client.

This version is a hotfix that fixes an issue with the sound pack selection, which caused the default female sound pack to be selected when you did not modify your bookmarks since version 3.0.1 of the TeamSpeak client.

If you already updated to the 3.0.9 release you will unfortunately have to set the sound pack for each bookmark in the bookmark manager or use the new button that was added to the notifications area in the options dialog to automatically set all your bookmarks to use the sound pack selected in the notification options.

If you have not yet updated to the 3.0.9 release you won't have to do anything.

=== Client Release 25 Oct 2012
+ Added button in notifications to set all bookmark soundpacks to "default".
- Fixed converter setting "default" instead of "default female voice" so old
bookmarks use soundpack in notifications.

As always we'd love to hear from you about your experiences. And we are always available to help with issues you may encounter. Please feel free to drop us a line in our community forums if you have any questions or feedback.

Thank you.

TeamSpeak 3 Client Version 3.0.8 Released
by Sven on Jul 16, 2012

We are happy to announce the release of version 3.0.8 of the TeamSpeak 3 Client.

This release introduces support for DNS Service records (SRV) in addition to our existing TSDNS system. In addition, version 3.0.8 fixes more than 10 bugs and increases the functionality of several existing features. For example, it's now possible to set a Host Banner without having to specify a remote server using our built-in file transfer capabilities.

Apple has taken some steps to protect OS X users by including a new technology called Gatekeeper to prevent unauthorised code from running on your Mac. Version 3.0.8 includes a code signature for compatibility with OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion).

Here's the complete changelog:

=== Client Release 3.0.8 16 Jul 2012
+ Added support for SRV records when resolving domain names.
Format for a SRV record for a TS3 server is: TTL IN SRV priority weight port target
It is also possible to add a SRV record for a TSDNS server for a domain, the format for this is: TTL IN SRV priority weight port target
The priority when resolving is:
(1) _ts3 SRV record (2) _tsdns SRV record (3) TSDNS (4) DNS
+ Added showing the chat line limit and its typed chars.
+ Added check of containing files before deleting a channel.
+ Added local server banner via filetransfer.
For example: ts3image://banner.png?channel=1&path=/banners

+ Added notification channel deleted/edited "by the server"
Please note the two added keys CHANNEL_DELETED_BY_SERVER and CHANNEL_EDITED_OTHER_BY_SERVER in settings.ini. Addon Sound Packs can add them too.
+ Added custom "block receiving whisper" button for toolbar.
+ Added activate/deactivate/toggle hotkeys to block receiving whispers.
+ Mac OS X: Added Apple Developer ID certificate for gatekeeper in upcoming Mountain Lion release.
* Clients can now be dragged from chat log.
* Enable drag&drop from "List All Clients" again. Drag applies to the selected client.
* Save last sorting of "List All Clients" list. Apply sorting whenever new clients arrive after clicking the "More" button.
Please note that nicknames are now sorted case-insensitive.

* Support bbCode in ts3plugin_infoData text.

- Fixed using "Keyboard & Mouse" hotkey system with Synergy.
- Fixed chat line issue when opening menu e.g. via ALT+S.
- Fixed an issue with the filetransfer slots could get over the maximum of 10.
- Fixed crash when parsing a corrupt urls.dat (thanks to torzsi for the file).
Please note that urls.dat is now called caught_urls.dat and because it got a new internal format, the old one will be deleted after convertion.
- Fixed displaying wrong default channel group in channelgroup permissions.
- Fixed a memory leak, which could increase memory usage drastically when running the client for a very long time.
- Fixed filter clear button in server/client logviews, cleaned up layouts.

We are happy to announce the release of version 3.0.7 of the TeamSpeak 3 Client.

Among multiple improvements and resolved issue this release comes with new hotkey systems on Windows.
