Lorien 1.x has all the features that end users have come to expect from a haven. The command set closely resembles that of Chris Eleveld's traditional haven and as such differs slightly from those of the Hotel California and CL (Opium Den). The installation is quick and painless per the provided documentation. The server is small and efficient --- its in-memory size is less than half the size of Minihaven. Lorien remains unchallenged as the most tested chat server on the planet and has been ported to more than twenty platforms including:

AIX 3.2.x, 4.1.x and 4.2.x       Mac OS/X (Jaguar and Panther!)
AT&T SVR3                        Microsoft Windows (under Cygwin)
AT&T SVR4                        NCR UNIX
BULL/DPX                         NeXTStep 2.x, 3.x
DG/UX                            PUCC Dynix
Digital OSF/1 (all versions)     SCO OpenServer                    
Digital UNIX (all versions)      SCO UNIX ODT 3.x
FreeBSD (all versions)           Sequent Dynix and Dynix/PTS          
Linux (all versions)             SunOS 4.x
HP/UX 9.x, 10.0x                 SunOS 5.x (Solaris 2.x)

Porting Lorien to additional platforms is usually trivial. If your platform isn't listed, ask Jillian, as she's always looking for new testbeds.
