We are migrating to Husky fido tools

We are going to use actively developed Husky fido tools for our next distributions. The Crashmail + gtic + etc. branch looks like freezed and will be not improved. There are no resources to continue work on it. There is also some problems with qico mailer. Current BeOS-portable branch 0.48.* is not updated for long time. Branch 0.49.* was redesigned radically and looks like will be not portable anymore on BeOS. Thank you guys! =-( But we hope on our success with BeOS port of BinkleyTerm XE. It is on the way. Some modem-handling problems still stay on but we still hope. Husky-related updates coming soon !!! Do not go away for a long time!

Forgotten FMA binaries uploaded ...

This week I saw something strange. People downloaded FMA version of CrashMAil many times, but nobody downloaded FMA sources itself ... I think they where disappointed, trying to run that version of CM. Sorry ... Just download precompiled libFMA.so binaries and put it to /boot/home/config/lib. After that CM should work ...

CrashMail news ...

Some workaround for famous "bad pkt" problem added. ALLOWSNULLPASSWORD config key. CrashMail will just not check for passwords on incoming pkts. Also added possibility to compile non-FMA configurations. Just set NO_FMA key in Makefile.beos to 1 and rebuild CrashMail.

gtic is finally ported.

Some problems, that exists from previous version is fixed now:
1) Some helpers scripts fixed - announces about new areas creations and new files notifications is works now.
2) Area manager is made working. Just read "config" file for comments how to activate it.
3) Locking is working too. Not stressly tested but working ... =-)

As soon as possible it'll be released as binary package. But now you should use anonymous cvs access to grab sources and compile them by yourself. Please wait some time ...

Opss! You can get Walther sources.

Walther sources uploaded onto CVS. Module name "Walther".

WARNING!!! The current copy is in half-way to real-working application. Use tag "alpha_0_1_0" to download really working well-famos "alpha-0.1.0-138" version.

CrashMail FMA support added.

OK. Messagebase handling in this version of CrashMail provided by FMA Library. JAM, Squish and FTS-1 bases handled by FMA but BFS not FMA. Probably in the futire BFS support will disappear or transform to something like FSC-0007 base format with Be file system attributes ...
New version is accessible by tag "release_0_6_2_beos_fma".
WARNING!!! Not tested. =-)))
