fetchmail-6.3.26 (released 2013-04-23, 26180 LoC): # NOTE THAT FETCHMAIL IS NO LONGER PUBLISHED THROUGH IBIBLIO. * They have stopped accepting submissions and consider themselves an archive. # CRITICAL BUG FIX for setups using "mimedecode": * The mimedecode feature failed to ship the last line of the body if it was encoded as quoted-printable and had a MIME soft line break in the very last line. Reported by Lars Hecking in June 2011. Bug introduced on 1998-03-20 when the mimedecode support was added by ESR before release 4.4.1 through code contributed by Henrik Storner. Workaround for older releases: do not use mimedecode feature. Earlier versions of this NEWS file claimed this bug fixed in fetchmail-6.3.23, but it was not. Fixes Launchpad Bug#1171818. # KNOWN BUGS AND WORKAROUNDS (This section floats upwards through the NEWS file so it stays with the current release information) * Fetchmail does not handle messages without Message-ID header well (See sourceforge.net bug #780933) * BSMTP is mostly untested and errors can cause corrupt output. * Sun Workshop 6 (SPARC) is known to miscompile the configuration file lexer in 64-bit mode. Either compile 32-bit code or use GCC to compile 64-bit fetchmail. Note that fetchmail doesn't take advantage of 64-bit code, so compiling 32-bit SPARC code should not cause any difficulties. * Fetchmail does not track pending deletes across crashes. * The command line interface is sometimes a bit stubborn, for instance, fetchmail -s doesn't work with a daemon running. * Linux systems may return duplicates of an IP address in some circumstances if no or no global IPv6 addresses are configured. (No workaround. Ubuntu Bug#582585, Novell Bug#606980.) * Kerberos 5 may be broken, particularly on Heimdal, and provide bogus error messages. This will not be fixed, because the maintainer has no Kerberos 5 server to test against. Use GSSAPI.
