INTRODUCTION Today's release consists of two maintenance releases to v0.18.2 and v0.19.0. A special thank you goes out to Sam Schinke who continues to contribute time and energy to POPFile. I recommend v0.19.0 because of the many improvements, but v0.18.2 is the STABLE release for those who want rock solid reliability and want others to do the bug hunting on the new v0.19.x line :-) ESSENTIAL READING IF YOU ARE UPGRADING TO v0.19.1 from v0.18.x 1. BACK UP YOUR OLD INSTALLATION: POPFile makes this really easy, just copy the entire POPFile directory somewhere. You can then safely install POPFile v0.19.1 on top of your current installation; I just think a back up is a sensible precaution. 2. ACCURACY MIGHT DROP FOR A SHORT WHILE: because of some changes made in the mail parser it is possible that you might see accuracy drop initially and you may find yourself reclassifying a few messages that used to work. This is unfortunate but necessary to make POPFile even more accurate than before and v0.19.1 incorporates changes that make POPFile's classification accuracy better; however old corpuses might need a little retraining. DOWNLOADING You can obtain the latest releases of POPFile by visiting http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=63137 UPGRADING Just install POPFile on top of the currently installed version. But did you read the ESSENTIAL READING above first if you are upgrading from a pre v0.19.1 version? FAQ zonk3r has spent a great deal of time on a POPFile FAQ.
