    2 INSTALL
    3 ------------------------------
    4 Swaks is designed to be a self contained script.  It should run on any system
    5 that has Perl installed, although its capabilities may be limited by which
    6 modules are installed.
    7 
    8 To get a view of what Swaks can and cannot do on a given system, run:
    9 
   10     swaks --support
   11 
   12 Swaks will evaluate the installed perl modules and inform you of any
   13 missing functionality, and how to get that functionality.  Example output:

   89 Change Summary
   90 ------------------------------
   91 v20201014.0
   92   New Features:
   93     * None
   94   Notable Changes:
   95     * None
   96   Notable Bugs Fixed:
   97     * Last release introduced a bug where Date: headers were localized, which
   98       is against RFC.  Further, that localization then broke character rendering
   99       in some locales.  A new fix for the original issue (#17) was put in place,
  100       which no longer localizes the Date: header and fixes the newly introduced
  101       rendering issue (#25)
  102     * Last release introduced a bug which prevented --protect-prompt from
  103       working.  This is now fixed (#26)
