The current release (1.1.1) appeared about 20 months ago so it is time for another release.

POPFile 1.1.2 will include some corrections and improvements. Note that the wiki page may get updated to mention features not yet included in this particular release candidate.

The Release Notes included with Release Candidate 1 (RC1) are incomplete but all of the code changes for POPFile 1.1.2 are included in RC1.

The Windows installer has been upgraded to install better support for SSL connections and it is hoped that these changes will solve the problems reported by some users.

WARNING: Do NOT try to use this Release Candidate to upgrade your main POPFile installation!

Release Candidate 1 (RC1) is now available for testing in the following versions:

If any problems are found and fixed then another release candidate (RC2) will be made.

  • Message #1481

    If I set up a new database using 1.1.2 - RC1, will it be upgradeable to production status when the final version is ready or will I have to start all over again?

    • Message #1482

      Any database created by a Release Candidate will work OK with the final version.

    I've found that the Windows version of POPFile generates following warning if the task tray icon is disabled:

    ERROR: POPFile needs Perl module File::Path, please install it.

    The cause is that "popfile.pck" contains the line:

    REQUIRED 0.0.0 File::Path

    The File::Path Perl module is needed only by '' and we can remove this line.

      The File::Path Perl module is needed only by '' and we can remove this line.

      Sorry about that - it was my fault.

      The Makefile creates popfile.pck by running the script which scans the source code to see which modules are required.

      On my build system the POPFile folder had the current file and and old version from CVS/SVN ( The script added File::Path to popfile.pck because the old version of used it. I have fixed this by deleting the old file.
