POPFile v0.22.5 Released

Here are the details:

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
nominations (i.e. as many people as possible) to get into the list of
finalists.

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).


WHERE TO 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
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 v0.99. They are known to be incompatible with POPFile; v1.07
is the most recent release of IO::Socket::SSL that works correctly.
