The SquirrelMail Team is pleased to announce the release of
SquirrelMail version 1.4.20. This release makes final the changes
implemented in our last two release candidates and adds several
smaller fixes and feature improvements.
Of those new fixes and improvements not included in our last release
candidate, the most notable fix is that for the formerly broken search
page, but we've also fixed sorting in the Sent folder, handling of
complex mailto: addresses, display of multibyte subjects, quoting of
encoded headers, automatic installation address detection (especially
useful for lighttpd environments), a privacy issue related to DNS
prefetching of email content, and added unread links in the message
view and a Gmail IMAP configuration option.
For more complete details, see the ReleaseNotes and ChangeLog files
included in this release (in the doc/ directory).
Due to the security fixes included in our last two release candidate
packages, we advise all users of SquirrelMail versions 1.4.19 and
below to upgrade.

Attention all users of SquirrelMail:
SquirrelMail is currently celebrating 10 years of providing free, Open
Source Software to the world. We have a lot to be grateful for and
many people to thank for how successful we've been! But running a
high-profile project with all-volunteer labor means that the mundane
chores gradually consume all our effort and sideline our visionary
initiatives for our next big release. We feel that the time is right,
after so many years of free service, to ask our community to
contribute to the project and support us in keeping up with ongoing
maintenance and development, and in speeding up the release of our
new, fully-skinable "Web 2.0" version. Please visit our donations and
bounties page here:
We consist of volunteers developing the most popular open source
webmail client available. We're looking for people to join our team
to help keep our product quality high and to continue to deliver new
and enhanced features. Our project offers an interesting challenge at
the intersection of the IMAP, SMTP and HTTP protocols.
What can you do to help? Any of the following:
* Develop new features: help out on making SquirrelMail "skinnable" or work
with new technologies
* Help sort and fix bugs: interact with submitters, find test cases and
solutions to bugs
* Support our users by answering questions on the mailing lists or the IRC
* Translate SquirrelMail into your language
* Donate to the developers: feed us nuts!
