I doubt people will move on as there is nothing to move to. If anyone knows of an alternative (that doesn't use Java), I'd be keen to give it a try. All I need is email; nothing else. For me, I've found a combination of server and client that works and I'm sticking with it as changing has always ended in pain.

Moving everybody to the version two client is a step in the right
direction but then we have to take care of the server side also.
Actually, I just fired up the stand alone modem and got it working
nicely. I changed a few things to make it more stable (submitted in
subversion) and now it's actually working.
I'm not saying we should use that as is but if we could make it work as
well as the v2 client then I would use it on my server also.

A lot of Linux users have also updated to 3.21.6x for various reasons...
The effect is indeed that data exchange is almost impossible.
There is no reason to use fldigi versions higher than 3.21.40 for
pskmail, because
the ARQ interface had been stable since it was implemented the first
time in 2006.

The ARQ interface was introduced into fldigi especially for pskmail,
which initially used the file system to communicate between the programs.
The xmlrpc interface came a lot later, and as the ARQ interface has
perfectly from the start there is not any reason to chane to xmlrpc...
It went wrong when fldigi started to use the ARQ interface for AMP-2

Am I right, that this causes following effect:

1) linux-clients: are able to establish connections and exchanging data
because fldigi package-versions in most linux-distributions are not
higher then 3.21.4x
2) windows-users, running clients 1.5.x with actual fldigi-versions: are
also able to establish connections but ARE NOT ABLE TO EXCHANGE DATA?

This would explain a lot of broken connections on my server...
