) 3.0.4 RELEASE NOTES IN DETAIL – 9 July 2000

12 bug fixes:

1. Fixed a memory leak which could cause a crash on quitting,
especially if quitting was requested by other applications
(i.e. when one selects Restart or Shutdown in the Finder).
2. Filter conditions (is sender in group/folder, account) were
sometimes changed to a wrong group/folder/account when
opening the filter dialog
3. Fixed bug when pasting text in subject field on when an OS
had the Hebrew language kit installed
4. When replying an English-language message on a system with
Hebrew set as system script, a direction-change character was
inserted, causing the message to be sent with Hebrew encoding
instead of Roman encoding.
5. The undo menu was enabled when creating a new message; using
it would delete the signature
6. Error -35 would appear when saving messages containing the
illegal character “:” in their subject as text
7. Fixed auto scroll bug when zoom factor is not 100%
8. Fixed crash when typing up/down arrow in recipient field when
forwarding a message (before typing an address)
9. If a user clicks “continue” on the alert saying that
navigation services are not available, the alert will not
appear the next time
10. When changing the status of a message resulting from a “View
only” selection (notably when clicking on an unread message)
it would get displayed with its old status after dismissing
the “View only” floating windows, despite having correctly
updated the status
11. Upon closing the view-only palette, erasing the view-only
field or selecting “View All” the selection was lost
12. When View Only was enabled while displaying the In Tray,
newly fetched messages would force “View All” automatically

New features / enhancements

1. Accelerated the launch time by about 27%
2. By popular demand, implemented the tabulated text export
format, including a sample FileMaker Pro 4 database
illustrating the use of the field format that we use:
– Date (MM/DD/YYYY), GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)
– Time (HH:MM:SS), GMT
– From
– Subject
– To (list separated by commas if multiple To/CC recipients)
– Body (line breaks replaced by ASCII 11)
– date-time-zone in RFC822 format
– full headers (line breaks replaced by ASCII 11)
