Welcome to POPFile v0.22.5 This version is a bug fix and minor feature release that's been over a year in the making (mostly due to me being preoccupied by other things). NOMINATING POPFILE FOR AN AWARD SourceForge has announced their 'Community Choice Awards' for 2007 and is looking for nominations. If you feel that POPFile deserves such an honour please visit the following link and nominate POPFile in the 'Best Project for Communications' category. POPFile requires multiple nominatins (i.e. as many people as possible) to get into the list of finalists. http://sourceforge.net/awards/cca/nomination.php?group_id=63137 Thanks! WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE v0.22.4 1. POPFile now defaults to using SQLite2 (the Windows installer will convert existing installations to use SQLite2). 2. Various improvements to the handling of Japanese messages and improvements for the 'Nihongo' environment: Performance enhancement for converting character encoding by skipping conversion which was not needed. Fix a bug where the wrong character set was sometimes used when the charset was not defined in the mail header. Fix a bug where several HTML entities caused misclassification. Avoid a warning 'uninitialized value'. Fix a bug that the word's links in the bucket's detail page were not url-encoded. 3. Single Message View now has a link to 'download' the message from the message history folder. 4. Log file now indicates when an SSL connection is being made to the mail server. 5. A number of small bug fixes to the POPFile IMAP interface. 6. Installer improvements: Email reconfiguration no longer assumes Outlook Express is present. Add/Remove Programs entries for POPFile now show a more realistic estimate of the program and data size. Better support for proxies when downloading the SSL Support files. The SSL patches are no longer 'hard-coded', they are downloaded at install time. This will make it easier to respond to future changes to the SSL Support files. The Message Capture Utility now has a Start Menu shortcut to make it easier to use the utility. The minimal Perl has been updated to the latest version. The installer package has been updated to make it work better on Windows Vista (but further improvements are still required). GETTING STARTED WITH POPFILE An introduction to installing and using POPFile can be found in the QuickStart guide: http://getpopfile.org/wiki/QuickStart SSL SUPPORT IN WINDOWS SSL Support is offered as one of the optional components by the installer. If the SSL Support option is selected the installer will download the necessary files during installation. If SSL support is not selected when installing (or upgrading) POPFile or if the installer was unable to download all of the SSL files then the command setup.exe /SSL can be used to run the installer again in a special mode which will only add SSL support to an existing installation. CROSS PLATFORM VERSION KNOWN ISSUES The current version of SQLite (v3.x) is not compatible with POPFile. You must use DBD:SQLite2 to access the database. Users of SSL on non-Windows platforms should NOT use IO::Socket::SSL v0.97 or v0.96. They are known to be incompatible with POPFile; v1.07 is the most recent release of IO::Socket::SSL that works correctly. v0.22.0 RELEASE NOTES If you are upgrading from pre-v0.22.0 please read the v0.22.0 release notes for much more information: http://getpopfile.org/wiki/ReleaseNotes DONATIONS Thank you to everyone who has clicked the Donate! button and donated their hard earned cash to me in support of POPFile.
