"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive

As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 0.9.18
    2  - For GTK interface, manually set WM_CLASS to Netbiff; this avoids the case
    3    where GTK fails to guess the right name (e.g., when we have already parsed
    4    some of the arguments).
    5  - netbiffd-imap now uses the UNSEEN flag instead of the RECENT flag.
    6    The user-visible behavior change should be minor, and the UNSEEN flag
    7    is better supported in many implementations.
    9 0.9.17
   10  - fix bug with command line arguments and gtk frontend
   11  - improve errors messages when reading configuration
   13 0.9.16:
   14  - let gtk block in gtk_request_data() (avoid 100% CPU utilization when
   15    requesting password). Thanks, Xavi Serrano.
   16  - allow correct building when gtk is not present (ignore pkg-config errors)
   18 0.9.15:
   20 - ditched autoconf; use conf-* to configure
   21 - simplified directory layout
   22 - requires SSL to build (this should be standard nowadays)
   23 - always build text interface
   24 - build GTK interface always if pkg-config gtk+-2.0 works
   26 0.9.14:
   28 netbiffd-imap now sends OK response when asking for password. This will avoid
   29 a spurious "connection has not been established" message.
   31 0.9.13:
   33 Lots of changes:
   34  - dropped gtk-old interface
   35  - retry support has changed; connections will be retried forever, but
   36    with exponential backoff
   37  - gtk interfaces handles resets better; the "main" image will be reset
   38    only if all connections are unbiffed
   39  - connections are unbiffed when they must be re-established (this stops the 
   40    "network went down and it won't unbiff" problem)
   41  - modules requesting data can now be fed directly from the on-disk
   42    configuration rather than asking the user
   44 Most importantly, configuration has completely changed. It is now
   45 directory-based, rather than file-based. See the file doc/config.txt for more
   46 information.
   48 0.9.12:
   50 Fixed a nasty race condition bug in the text interface.
   52 0.9.11:
   54 Moved GTK support to GTK 2.0.
   56 0.9.4:
   58 The GTK interface has been changed to be a little more useful. The old one is
   59 available by doing "netbiff --gui=gtk-old".  Interfaces can now have their
   60 own command line options, separated from the other options by --.  The GTK
   61 interface supports -geometry. So, for example, "netbiff --gui=gtk --
   62 -geometry +300+200" will position the window at (300,200). 
   64 0.9.3:
   66 I've implemented folder reset commands (these are triggered when a folder
   67 de-biffs, and all folders are now in the unbiffed state, indicating that
   68 there is no new mail waiting).  The syntax for attaching an action to a
   69 connection is now changed; update actions are specified with the "update"
   70 keyword, and resets use the "reset" keyword.  There is also a new default
   71 action for resets, "image-reset".  Formerly, the image-reset was done by
   72 default (but now must be specified explicitly).
   74 0.9.2:
   76 I've added autoconf support. This may break some platforms, but it seems to
   77 work ok for me so far.  There are options to set which frontends should be
   78 included (--enable-text and --enable-gtk options to configure); both are
   79 enabled by default.
   81 Theoretically this should just require testing on other platforms. Any
   82 failures to build should be easily added to autoconf. If it doesn't build for
   83 you, please send send me the following information:
   85 Platform (OS and CPU)
   86 Output of ./configure
   87 Any compiler warnings or errors
   89 to peff@peff.net
