[2] What's new in PowerMail 3.0b7 / change notes 25 feb 2000

23 bugs fixed:

1. Crashes would occur in b5 (not in b3) upon fetching or
importing messages without body with message without body
2. The browser window would sometimes disappear when switching
layers, especially if an error message was drawn while in the
background (1563)
3. Upon importing from PowerMail 2.4, we no longer rename the
original PowerMail Files folder to (PowerMail files 2.4)
4. Extended time-out period to 4 minutes for POP fetches.
5. We now load every folders in address book before view only
(1666)
6. When a message was large enough to cause an out of memory
error, this would prevent PowerMail from displaying any other
message (1669)
7. When using the buttons in the header to go to next or
previous message, the window displaying the message was no
longer active which meant that the page-down/page-up keys
were disabled (1565)
8. Re-established movable filters in list (1674)
9. Autoscroll did not work when attempting to move a selection
from one of the settings window (Configurations, settings,
filters) or when creating a new item that was outside of the
visible range: the list now moves up (1372)
10. No longer quote full headers when replying (1667)
11. The Contextual Menus extension is no longer required in order
to launch PowerMail
12. Implemented control-shift-tab to exit the body text field
13. When we closed the address book and the browser was front
window, this would dismiss the View only floater
14. When we import a mailbox in unexpected and format, a proper
error is displayed
15. The name of all print jobs was always "View only" instead of
the real subject or window name (1663)
16. V-Twin index files had a wrong icon (1499)
17. When moving the attachments folder from one volume to
another, PowerMail would sometimes lose its reference to
attachments when drawing a message and would display the
application folder's name instead. (1664)
18. Duplicating an account might not have filled its name
19. Upon switching user environments, the PowerMail Files folder
used until then is selected as default location
20. When sorting on comments, addresses with no comments get
sorted on top; warning: if you have an address book from
earlier versions of PowerMail, you will need to rebuild the
sort order bfore seeing the effects of this fix (hold the
option and command key upon launching to rebuild sort orders)
(1715)
21. Aborting a printout with command-period (.) no longer
produces an error -128
22. In the accounts dialog, we no longer access the keychain for
thos accounts which rely on it (this avoids the
authentication dialog)
23. When answering several messages in one go, they now all
appear as replied to (1618)

12 missing features added

1. Enhanced the layout of received message window layout; we now
memorize the user-customized layout (dragging the separators)
(1531)
2. Force-updating the find-by-content index could crash if a
scheduled POP operation occured (1734)
3. Properly deal with messages from non-Y2K compliant mailers
that send the year 100 instead of 2000
4. Tabbing in the main body text field now produces 4 spaces
5. We now memorize the state of the View only popup menu in
prefs
6. Upon viewing an unexpected network error alert, added error #
(1668)
7. Implemented "Open text file" (plain text and Unicode text
formats) (1544)
8. Implemented "Save as text" (plain text and Unicode text
formats) for single messages (1547)
9. New PowerMail files folder are named "PowerMail 3.0 files" in
all cases (first launch, import from PM 2.4 or New User
environment)
10. Error dialogs were rewrittten to support multiple-line
Unicode error messages (1533)
11. PowerMail now supports parts of type text/enriched (1430)
12. Implemented support for virtual domains. The format in POP
accounts is "user%my.virtual.host@my.real.host" where
"my.virtual host" is the name that will exclusively show up
in the mail headers but not be actually used and
"my.real.host" will be used instead (1651)

------------------------------------------------------------------
Known bugs & other limitations

* The database format could yet change, although we currently
have no such plans. Export your mail on a regular basis.
* Ballon help on toolbar may not be wide enough, so words get
truncated. There isn't much to see in the toolbar balloons
anyway.
* Import address books, Import multi Eudora mailbox files and
Find in current message are not implemented yet

-------------------------------------------------------------------
What did not qualify to be in this build (or didn't make it in time):

* Mac OS 8.1 compatibility. As PowerMail 2.4 works well on Mac
OS 7.5.5, 8.1 and 9 AND we plan to continue supporting
PowerMail 2.4, we are considering requiring Mac OS 8.5 in
PowerMail 3.
* IMAP
* Built-in display of HTML messages (we do however support
sending an HTML message to your browser using the "Globe"
icon button)
* Language plug-ins
* Address book import/export in tabulated text and LDIF format
(preserves groups !)
* V-Twin summarization and find similar
* Picking up the current message's elements when creating a new
filter
* Menu items
o Mark read/mark unread
o Reset Column Positions
o Enter Search string
o Paste as quotation
* Text unwrapping
* AppleScript
