1.2.0 Revision 1

Sometimes things go perfectly and sometimes...

It seems there was a nasty little bug in 1.2.0 causing some problems with the denysmtp function. However thanks to the quick work of Fritz Borgstedt ande his army of testers, that bug has been squashed! To update your existing 1.2.0 installation you can download the upgrade .zip file and simply copy the assp.pl file into your assp directory. Or if you haven't upgraded to 1.2.0 yet simply unzip the entire contents into your assp directory. If this is your first ASSP installation, unzip the install.zip file and follow the directions provided.

ASSP 1.0.8 released

This release has a little something for everyone. Most notably the following bug fixes:

1) ASSP daemon crashes randomly in Linux / *nix (broken pipe)
2) Better email address recognition for the whitelist
3) Option files reloading every second
4) X-ASSP headers are at the end of the header, not next to the subject.

And a couple new features, including that email reply reports for assp-spam, assp-notspam, and assp-white are in their own files now.... read more

ASSP Crossed the two million mark

Hi ASSP friends. I was encouraged to see on ASSP's totalized statistics page (http://assp.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/total.pl) that we're processing more than half a million messages per day and have crossed the $2,000,000 per year mark. (I've seen a number of different ways of counting actual cost for spam, and I'm convinced that my number is pretty conservative, but I'll stick with it for consistancy sake.) Next week we should cross the 20,000,000 blocked spams mark.... read more

1.0.6 includes stats that don't reset!

Mostly just a maintenance release to get the documentation up to date. However this version includes statistics that don't reset when you restart ASSP (together with the old ones as well). Purely cosmetic, but maybe people will stop posting patches to do this which have unintended side effects.

Also Fixed:
repair.pl
assp died the first time the greylist was downloaded

To upgrade, just replace older distribution files with the newer ones and restart assp.... read more

1.0.5 released -- Everyone Please Upgrade!

I strongly recommend that everyone running version 0.2.0 and higher upgrade. Thanks to all those who helped me isolate the problem in the orderedtie package. It caused problems with missed whitelist entries, missed spamdb entries, and problems rebuilding the spamdb with the ramsaver option enabled.

This version has a bold new look to match the web site. (Thanks TONS to AJ for his effort in this.)... read more

ASSP 1.0.4 Released

This is mostly small bug fixes, but the mail parser (sub clean) has been tuned to significantly improve spam recognition.

Upgrade by copying rebuildspamdb.pl and assp.pl to your assp install, then run rebuildspamdb.pl and then restart assp.

Sorry I didn't get the "whitelisted domains in a file" feature yet. Maybe next time.

John
