New release 040128 - encryption support

I've just posted release 040128 for Pooka 1.1 (JDK 1.4 version). It supports PGP and S/MIME encryption. I'm sure that it will need a lot of work and testing and so forth, but it's there.

Also, I'm not sure if I've mentioned this here, but Pooka can now be started using webstart. Go to


to try it out.

new pooka build - 020810

new features include improved new user configuration, faster ssl connection, and pop over ssl. see the changelist (and, i suppose, the release notes) for more information.

we're getting closer and close to something that i consider done enough to call 1.0 beta...

Release for fun numbering.

I think that I got this one onto SourceForge
properly. See the release notes and change log
for information.

new release 011226 -- sort of

Well, I just tried positing a new build, but, at least so far for me,
it's not showing up on here properly. For now, I'd suggest
going to http://www.suberic.net/pooka/files/latest/ if you want
to get the latest version. With luck, I'll have this sorted out

Be sure to read the release notes on this new release, though;
I've changed several things about the way that SMTP servers
are configured, and, while this should be completely backwards
compatible, I do suggest that users go in and configure their
clients to use the new system.... read more

new build 011105

Yeah, it's about time.

I've put up a new build. This one has a built-in address book. It's kind of minimalist right now, but it's there.

oops--new build 010509

I screwed up with the build scripts for 010508.
this one should be better.

new build 010508

Finally, a new Pooka build. The main feature that people will notice is
the search button on the folder view. The rest of the UI for searches is
lacking, but the basic functionality is there. I also fixed several bugs
with running IMAP in disconnected mode.

I haven't tested this build as much as I'd tested earlier ones, so it may
have a few more bugs. Hopefully it'll be ok, though.

update, delay in next release

I just bought a house about a month ago, and moved into it
last week. So there's been an understandable delay in getting
a new build of Pooka out. I hope that I'll be able to get one
put together in a few weeks, but I can't promise anything.

The new version's main new feature will be support for searching folders for messages using the javax.mail.search
package. I've also added the ability to filter incoming messages, and also the ability to modify the display of messages in the folder listing (i.e. display all mailing list messages in italics).... read more

i've put out a new build of pooka (datestamp 010205). this version includes much, much better pop support, improved reliability after imap server hiccups, disconnected imap support, and a slew of ui improvements.

i'm also in the process of moving my cvs tree over to sourceforge. we'll see how that goes.

Posted by allen petersen 2001-02-07
