DSutils v2 release (signatures)
For server admins and addon makers
more details : http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=115114
- The server with verifySignatures=1 will check both v1 and v2 signatures.
- With verifySignatures=2 the server will reject clients using any addons which are signed by v1 signatures only.
- The new signatures are understood by old clients and servers as well, but they do not provide any enhanced security for them
level checkFile and regularCheck are what admins must use for optimal security
remember if you use the signature tool it overwrite the same filename used for v1 with v2

added some more details for admins
How is this going to work in combination with BinPBO´s "Create signature" function?
REALISM! No, fuck that, FIRE THE LASER!
get that on DH.

actually the file will be overwritten using v2 signature, so i updated the post with the compatibility way we used ...
these who sign can decide if they use theirs old signature to replace v1 with v2 ignoring backward compatibility
or they follow the compatibility example
well, this is not making a great deal of sense signature files wise. so far as i can see all bi have done is release a new public key against a new internal private key. That's fine and good, and hardly earth shattering.
pbo's themselves and the signatures *they* already have, don't change, nor could they.
the so called version2 stuff might well only work with bi2 bikeys, that's engine functionality, but nothing appears to be any different dsSignature tools wise and i'm suprised (and confused) what purpose re-releasing these 3 exes do for arrowhead that the old tools don't do in any case.
