TeamSpeak 3 Client Version 3.0.9 Released
by Ben on Oct 23, 2012

We are happy to announce the release of version 3.0.9 of the TeamSpeak 3 Client.

This new release comes with a new storage system for the TeamSpeak settings, which are now saved as a database instead of using multiple ini files. When upgrading to this version, old settings will be automatically converted. The now unused ini files are moved into a backup folder in the TeamSpeak config directory.
Also this release includes many improvements like more hotkeys, better support for joystick and gamepad hotkeys on Windows and many minor corrections.

Here's the complete changelog:

=== Client Release 3.0.9 23 Oct 2012
+ Changed the storage format of the configuration files to a SQLite database.
Conversion is done automatically the first time the client is started, all
affected files will be moved to a backup folder.

+ Added getClientNeededPermission and getPermissionIDByName to plugin API

a channel name parameter the channel id gets priority.
e.g. http://www.teamspeak.com/invite/voice.teamspeak.com/?cid=xyz
+ Added channel/client search in active server tree with STRG+F but only if
the server tree has the focus. Otherwise it is the ordinary chat search.

Input is activated. Existing Raw Input hotkeys cannot be converted so they
