1.1.7 beta version
Lots of stability fixes.
One of them are ability of POP3 server to return messages
(previously downloaded - i.e. in auto-check) if listing from server
was timed out - extremely useful on slow connections.
Support for folder selection in
XTND CHECK command.
Support for pre-checking (on
USER command) if folder is locked.
This allows client to distinguish from failed user/password.
Behind-the-scene (i.e. only for developers) script to catch interface
changes on webmail server.
1.1.6 beta version
Dependency on "islib" gone. You should delete all copies of "islib"
package because it's now completely unsupported.
Gmail support. If you have mailbox of cause. :-)
Netscape support. (RFE#869571)
Internal improvements useful for support files authors. See CHANGES.txt.
1.1.5 beta version
I hope that this is last release that uses separated islib package.
Mail.Com design support.
Yahoo! Mail support.
merge backend support.
Upgrade setup creation procedure to using "py2exe" 0.5+.
1.1.4 beta version
Resurrect Mail.Com support.
Multiple backends support (i.e. POP3 - you can get messages from POP3).
Revocation of version 1.1.9
Developers in Mail.Com contantly working against us - they
had made whole content of mime message (including boundaries)
unavailable. I'm drived to create new message download mechanism
but this will take some time for writing and testing.
1.1.9 pre-release version
If everything will be ok, this version will be re-released as 1.2.
Fixed bug that disables ability to re-login to Yahoo after timeout.
1.1.3 beta version
Biggest change is only visible in CVS - windows setup for WinWebMail
can now be customized for some sort of installation, which allows to
create setup packages of less size. Also it can be customized with
webmail.cfg file, so you don't need to create it on
installation. Last feature has not so many uses, but it's nessesary
Another minor change on Mail.Com site - advertisement on message delete.
1.1.2 development version
Another change on Mail.Com site.
This also included in 1.0.3.
Discovered that error in setup.py mentioned in 1.1.1 DO affect
WinWebMail, so I'm releasing it with couple another changes.
Most of the changes affect setup.py and InnoSetup script.
Look in comments for 1.0.3
1.0.3 stable version
Another change on Mail.Com site, backported from 1.1.2.
Many enhancements in setup (this was reason for one-day delay
after change on Mail.Com site mentioned above).
Setup now supports creating of multiple accounts and
editing of accounts, already exists in your
2003/08/26: 1.1.1 development version
Due to error in setup.py package webmail.client.config.parse
was not included in released version 1.1.
Note: This was not affected WinWebMail, so it's not re-released.
2003/08/25: 1.1 development version
Nearly complete rewrite.
New service configuration data model.
New API (new webmail.client.config.parse package).
Yahoo! Mail support, as a result of above.
2003/08/19: 1.0.2 stable release
Resurrected access to Mail.Com after additional advertisement pages.
Only login page has not prepended by advertisement. Do they going?..
2003/08/12: 1.0.1 stable release
Resurrected access to Mail.Com after site modifications.
2003/07/30: 1.0 stable release
This is first release of PyWebMail that considered stable.
This release supports only Mail.Com.
For support of Yahoo! Mail you should download 1.1
I hope that this program will be useful for you.
2003/07/26: 0.9.5 installer release
This is py2exe'ced version packed with Inno Setup
Advantage of this version is that in process of installation, it
asks for information and creates webmail.cfg.
2003/07/25: 0.9.5 release
This is release candidate for 1.0 version.
Please check if you are interested in using 1.0.
If everything will be OK, only change will be version shift.
Also this version will have (in couple of days) WinWebMail companion version.
You can use it as alternative to this package.
WinWebMail will be py2exe'cd wgetpop3, wget_nt, wget_gui and pop3mgr
for different usage flavors.
Note: new configuration style is not included in this version, to allow
it to be released earlier, so you should not use this package as a library
for your programs (wait at least release 1.2), but you can use top-level
scripts provided (at last they do work this soft was created for!).
2003/06/05: 0.9 release
This release is defined beta.
setup.py now worked as expected.
py2exe known to work on Win2K.
wgetmail.py now reads
.ini files, so can be used for service debug.
2003/05/24: 0.8 release
Fanfare! Heading first major release!
A lot of changes since 0.1.
