Small update but an update none the less. The developers have fixed up the chat channels so now thing like /cg and /trade work. They have also been working on back end items and addressing an XP bug. They are also looking to add support on ACE console for setting per character admin rights and character renaming.
As a side note I would like to direct your attention to http://asheron.net as a more centralized area for Asheron’s Call connections. Not sure they will update as I do but they have a large amount of information gathered and sectioned for ease of use.
