1.1.1 (September 26, 2009)

*** POPFile 1.1.1 (September 26, 2009) ***

Welcome to POPFile v1.1.1

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 upgrade introduces some new features and fixes some bugs. The minimal Perl
used by the Windows version has been upgraded and as a result Windows 9x,
Windows Millennium and Windows NT are no longer officially supported.

WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE v1.1.0

1. New features

You can now customize Subject Header modification placement (head or tail)
by changing the new option 'bayes_subject_mod_pos'. (ticket #74)

NNTP module now caches articles received with the message number specified.

You can now jump to message header/message body/quick magnets/scores in the
single message view by clicking links on the head of the page. (ticket #77)

You can now filter messages shown in the history using 'reclassified' option.
(ticket #67)


2. Windows version improvements

The minimal Perl has been updated to the most recent 5.8 release. Since this
release of Perl only officially supports Windows 2000 or later POPFile 1.1.1
may not work on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Millennium or Windows NT. The
installer will display a warning message explaining that POPFile may not work
properly on these old systems.

The Windows system tray icon's menu now offers options to visit the support
website and check for new versions of POPFile.

If the automatic version check feature has been turned on (via the Security tab
in the User Interface) then the system tray icon will change and a message box
will be displayed. This check is performed once per day.

Now that all known problems with the system tray icon have been fixed it will
be enabled by default in new installations. (ticket #106)

The Windows installer now preselects the relevant components when upgrading or
modifying an existing installation. (tickets #13 and #26)

The Windows installer can now display the UI properly even if the database is
very large (tens of MB). (ticket #109)

Fixed a problem that POPFile does not work on Japanese Windows when the path
of the data directory contains non-ASCII characters (e.g. the user name is
written in Japanese). (ticket #111)

The installer is now compatible with Windows 7.


3. Mac OS X version improvements

The installer for Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) has come.
Since Snow Leopard includes Perl v5.10.0, the Perl modules which are supplied
with the POPFile installer v1.1.0 or earlier aren't compatible with it.

Starting with this version, two versions of installer will be released.
One is for Snow Leopard, and another is for the former versions of Mac OS X.
The name of Snow Leopard installer will have '-sl' suffix.


4. Other improvements

The users who are using very large database (tens of MB) will be able to
reclassify messages faster. (ticket #108)


5. Bug fixes

Fixed a bug that POPFile returned "does not appear in any of the buckets"
when user searched a word in the ignored word list. (ticket #75)

Fixed a bug that POPFile added blank Subject to quarantined message which
had no Subject header. (ticket #92)

Fixed a bug that POPFile used only message header to classify messages when
GLOBAL_message_cutoff was set to 0. (ticket #93)

Fixed a bug that the message history was not shown correctly after
removing/renaming buckets or after removing magnets. (ticket #73)

XMLRPC support has been fixed in the Windows version (it was broken in 1.0.0,
1.0.1 and 1.1.0). (ticket #103)

GETTING STARTED WITH POPFILE

An introduction to installing and using POPFile can be found in the QuickStart
guide:

  http://getpopfile.org/docs/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::SQLite (or 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/docs/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/docs/JP:HowTos:CrossPlatformInstall

KNOWN ISSUES

POPFile now supports IPv4 only.
(IPv6 is not supported yet.)

CROSS PLATFORM VERSION KNOWN ISSUES

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; v1.26 is the most recent
release of IO::Socket::SSL that works correctly.

WINDOWS KNOWN ISSUES

1. 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 it means that you can only download 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 by
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 returns an error message.
