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.
