Weasel is a mail server, and INIServe enables remote configuration of
Weasel. (Plus remote configuration of anything else that uses INI or TNI
files for its configuration options.) Weasel version 2.39 introduced a
new way of deciding whether to use an INI or TNI file. Basically, the
rule was to use whichever file existed, with tie-breaker rules for the
case where both existed. This new release ensures that the same rules
apply when using remote configuration. For that to work, however,
INIServe version 2.8 is a prerequisite. The small but significant change
to INIServe adds a "file does not exist" error response.
Remote configuration means that you can run your mail server (or FTP
server, or a few other possibilities) on one machine, but control it
from a different machine. This is to handle the common case where the
server machine does not have a keyboard or monitor.
