The eimSMS project and the www-sms project will merge as soon as possible. I've just requested to migrate the eimsms CVS module from the eimSMS project to a new www-sms CVS module called www-sms-send.
All eimSMS related development will this way continue on www-sms.
Furtheremore the www-sms project webpage is being update, some changes are already visible.
Hello WWW-SMS folks,
Today the new WWW-SMS mantainer Ivo Marino <firstname.lastname@example.org>
has released the 0.09 version of WWW-SMS.
Take a look at the ChangeLog and release notes for further intormations, have fun with WWW-SMS!
- Fixed a couple of silly bugs
- Added simple tests
First update in many months thanks to Juergen Weigert who worked out a couple german gateways. Here's the changelog:
- New submodules: Enel (by me), GsmboxDE and
LoopDE (by Juergen Weigert)
- No more silly __DATA__ in Telephone:Number.
- Now we "use strict" even in Telephone:Number.
Some fixes. Some rewriting. smstk.pl now is cuter. And pop3tosms.pl is more functional.
-new Beeline.pm for Russia
-new SFR.pm for France
-new GsmboxUK for UK
-now you can sort gateways() by RELIABILITY
-better code in Telephone::Number
I cannot put the changelog in the file release page cause SourceForge got some problems with them.
A mailing list for developers is now available.
Please subscribe just if you want to keep in touch with coding the library.
A 0.05 release is soon to be released with 3/4 new submodules, new methods, improved performance and a free beer for everyone. :)
Lots of changes!
I also got to broke something in submodules.
So now we got a more OO interface (with a cool $sms->send($gateway).just as cbouvi suggested), a new Telephone::Number module (that allows to send SMS without splitting phone number in three parts) and many more, also including a Makefile.PL! Oh my god, do you really trust to "make install" it? It's my first Makefile.PL so tell me everything that's wrong.
I'm back from NYC, never been to US before, it's been a great trip.
Anyway news about the project:
- Dmitry E. Dmitriev is the first to submit a working module for Russian SMS service. Thank you for the good job
- We are searching for a good namespace for new Telephone::Number submodule. I suppose the best location to be Number::Phone::Mobile. Anyway maybe the submodule is just too specific for our work and it should fit under the WWW::SMS::Something namespace...
-Please always remember that re-offering services from other free SMS is somewhat illegal. While i think using WWW::SMS for personal purposes as keeping a phonebook, administrative tasks, keeping you updated with something, etc. to be legitimate (we go through the whole HTTP connection a browser usually does), i really suppose giving access to the same services to other people to be unlawful without prior authorization by the gateway owner.
Ok, that's all for today... ah, one last thing: anybody got a Canada Dry Ginger Ale can there? I really miss it...
I took a holiday from everything on the next 5 days.
I'll be back on November 5.
You can download it from http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/www-sms/libwww-sms-perl-0.03.tar.gz
Some changes made on suggestions by users makes the new() and the gateways() methods smarter.
If no bug is found this release will be a good base for developing submodules.
In the new version: proxy and cookie_jar support, better documentation and better submodules to hack on. Good work.
I have written some POD docs for the WWW::SMS module and it's available in HTML format for easier consultation at
It's really interesting to who wants to write submodules and I think it to be a good starting point for discussion on pros and cons of my approach to the problem.
Yesterday night i have uploaded a first version in the CVS tree, please take a look there for now. I will upload a release package when i am done with the basics things.
