 +====== 1.0.0 (December 21, 2007) ======
 +<code>
 +Welcome to POPFile v1.0.0
 +POPFile is an email classification tool with a Naive Bayes classifier,
 +POP3, SMTP, NNTP proxies and IMAP filter and a web interface. It runs
 +on most platforms and with most email clients.
 +
 +This version is a bug fix and minor feature release.  It's also the
 +first release to have the version number 1.  This is because we've
 +finally decided to stop pretending that POPFile is 'beta' software :-)
 +
 +
 +WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE v0.22.5
 +
 +1. Changes to the IMAP module / Support for Gmail IMAP
 +
 +The IMAP module will now use only one connection to the IMAP server,
 +instead of one connection for each watched folder. This means that
 +when using IMAP mode, POPFile will be much lighter on the server and
 +will even work with IMAP servers that are restrictively configured or
 +if you have many buckets. As a consequence, you should now be able to
 +let POPFile sort your email on Google's Gmail.
 +
 +Please refer to the setup instructions on the POPFile wiki:
 +
 +    http://getpopfile.org/wiki/experimentalmodules:imapinstructions
 +
 +2. Nihongo improvements
 +
 +Japanese (Nihongo) text does not use spaces between words so POPFile
 +uses a 'Nihongo Parser' to split the text into words to allow the text
 +to be analysed properly. Up until now POPFile has used the 'Kakasi'
 +parser when analysing Japanese text. The 1.0.0 release offers a choice
 +of three parsers (Kakasi, MeCab and internal). The new
 +'bayes_nihongo_parser' configuration parameter is used to specify the
 +parser to be used (the default parser is Kakasi).
 +
 +The Windows installer lets the user select the Nihongo parser to be
 +installed.  All of the files needed for the Kakasi and internal
 +parsers are included in the installer. The MeCab package size is about
 +13 MB (i.e. too big to include in the installer) so it will be
 +downloaded from the Internet if the MeCab parser is selected when
 +installing POPFile.
 +
 +Other Nihongo changes: fixed a bug that the history table in the UI
 +was not being shown correctly when invalid characters were used in the
 +From, To and Cc headers in Nihongo mode; fixed a bug in the shortening
 +of Subjects in the history table.
 +
 +3. Installer improvements
 +
 +To make it easier to add SSL support after installing POPFile the
 +installer now creates an "Add/Remove Programs" entry which allows SSL
 +support to be added by downloading and installing the necessary
 +support files. This entry also allows the Nihongo parser to be changed
 +and will download the MeCab package if necessary.
 +
 +The installer and uninstaller have been upgraded to work better when
 +used on Vista, especially when run from a standard user account. Many
 +of these improvements also apply to Windows XP. For example the
 +uninstaller is now less likely to leave Start Menu shortcuts behind.
 +
 +4. UI improvements
 +
 +Change the default skin choice to simplyblue.  Add two new skins,
 +coolmint and ocean. Drop less popular skins: klingon, prjbluegrey,
 +and prjsteelbeach. Merge nearly duplicate tinydefault and lrclaptop
 +with smalldefault.  Add a little bit of polish to many of the others.
 +
 +Add a JavaScript Check All box for selecting messages to remove from
 +history.
 +
 +5. Other improvements
 +
 +Performance improvement in analyzing e-mails.  Encoded attachment file
 +names are now decoded.  Fixed a bug that missed some e-mail addresses.
 +
 +
 +WHERE TO DOWNLOAD
 +
 +    http://getpopfile.org/wiki/download
 +
 +
 +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
 +POPFile's "Add/Remove Programs" entry can be used to add SSL support
 +to an existing installation.
 +
 +
 +I AM USING THE CROSS PLATFORM VERSION
 +
 +POPFile requires a number of Perl modules that are available from
 +CPAN.  You will need:
 +
 +   Date::Parse
 +   HTML::Template
 +   HTML::Tagset
 +   DBD::SQLite2
 +   DBI
 +   TimeDate
 +
 +You can install all the required POPFile modules by getting the
 +Bundle::POPFile bundle from CPAN.
 +
 +Please refer to the installation instructions on the POPFile wiki:
 +
 +   http://getpopfile.org/wiki/HowTos:CrossPlatformInstall
 +
 +Japanese users may need to install some extra programs and Perl
 +modules, depending upon which Nihongo parser (wakachi-gaki program)
 +they wish to use.  For more information about how to install them, see
 +the POPFile wiki:
 +
 +   http://getpopfile.org/wiki/JP:HowTos:CrossPlatformInstall
 +
 +
 +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 v0.99.  They are known to be incompatible with POPFile; v1.07
 +is the most recent release of IO::Socket::SSL that works correctly.
 +
 +
 +WINDOWS KNOWN ISSUES
 +
 +1. THE TRAYICON ON WINDOWS CAN CAUSE POPFILE TO FREEZE.  With certain
 +setups, if you attempt to view the trayicon's tooltip or hover your
 +cursor over it while checking or downloading mail POPFile may freeze.
 +The exact cause is still unknown but it may be related to some video
 +drivers. If this problem affects you turn off the trayicon.
 +
 +Due to this issue, we suggest users of the IMAP module disable the
 +trayicon since a freeze may go unnoticed more easily than when using
 +a mail client to make POP3 connections.
 +
 +2. ON WINDOWS I WANT TO CHECK MULTIPLE EMAIL ACCOUNTS SIMULTANEOUSLY.
 +Because the time taken to start a new process on Windows is long under
 +Perl there is an optimization for Windows that is present by default:
 +when a new connection is made between your email program and POPFile,
 +POPFile handles it in the 'parent' process. This means the connect
 +happens fast and mail starts downloading very quickly, but is means
 +that you can only downloaded messages from one server at a time (up
 +to 6 other connections will be queued up and dealt with in the order
 +they arrive) and the UI is unavailable while downloading email.
 + 
 +You can turn this behavior off (and get simultaneous UI/email access
 +and as many email connections as you like) on the Configuration panel
 +in the UI and making sure that "Allow concurrent POP3 connections:" is
 +Yes, or by specifying --set pop3_force_fork=1 on the command line.
 +
 +The default behaviour (no concurrent POP3 connections) can cause email
 +clients to time out if several accounts are being checked (because
 +POPFile only handles one account at a time it can take a while to
 +process all of the accounts).
 +
 +If SSL support is being used then the default setting (no concurrent
 +POP3 connections) _MUST_ be used otherwise POPFile crashes.
 +
