POPFile v0.22.5 Released

2007-06-18
2013-04-15
  • Welcome to POPFile v0.22.5

    This version is a bug fix and minor feature release that's been over a
    year in the making (mostly due to me being preoccupied by other
    things).

    NOMINATING POPFILE FOR AN AWARD

    SourceForge has announced their 'Community Choice Awards' for 2007 and
    is looking for nominations.  If you feel that POPFile deserves such an
    honour please visit the following link and nominate POPFile in the
    'Best Project for Communications' category.  POPFile requires multiple
    nominations (i.e. as many people as possible) to get into the list of
    finalists.

    Thanks!

    WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE v0.22.4

    1. POPFile now defaults to using SQLite2 (the Windows installer will
       convert existing installations to use SQLite2).

    2. Various improvements to the handling of Japanese messages and
       improvements for the 'Nihongo' environment:

         Performance enhancement for converting character encoding by
         skipping conversion which was not needed.  Fix a bug where the
         wrong character set was sometimes used when the charset was not
         defined in the mail header.  Fix a bug where several HTML
         entities caused misclassification. Avoid a warning 'uninitialized
         value'. Fix a bug that the word's links in the bucket's detail
         page were not url-encoded.

    3. Single Message View now has a link to 'download' the message from
       the message history folder.

    4. Log file now indicates when an SSL connection is being made to the
       mail server.

    5. A number of small bug fixes to the POPFile IMAP interface.

    6. Installer improvements:

         Email reconfiguration no longer assumes Outlook Express is
         present.  Add/Remove Programs entries for POPFile now show a more
         realistic estimate of the program and data size.  Better support
         for proxies when downloading the SSL Support files.  The SSL
         patches are no longer 'hard-coded', they are downloaded at
         install time. This will make it easier to respond to future
         changes to the SSL Support files.  The Message Capture Utility
         now has a Start Menu shortcut to make it easier to use the
         utility.  The minimal Perl has been updated to the latest
         version.  The installer package has been updated to make it work
         better on Windows Vista (but further improvements are still
         required).

    GETTING STARTED WITH POPFILE

    An introduction to installing and using POPFile can be found in the
    QuickStart guide:

        http://getpopfile.org/wiki/QuickStart

    SSL SUPPORT IN WINDOWS

    SSL Support is offered as one of the optional components by the
    installer. If the SSL Support option is selected the installer will
    download the necessary files during installation.

    If SSL support is not selected when installing (or upgrading) POPFile
    or if the installer was unable to download all of the SSL files then
    the command

       setup.exe /SSL

    can be used to run the installer again in a special mode which will
    only add SSL support to an existing installation.

    CROSS PLATFORM VERSION KNOWN ISSUES

    The current version of SQLite (v3.x) is not compatible with POPFile.
    You must use DBD:SQLite2 to access the database.

    Users of SSL on non-Windows platforms should NOT use IO::Socket::SSL
    v0.97 or v0.99.  They are known to be incompatible with POPFile; v1.07
    is the most recent release of IO::Socket::SSL that works correctly.
