New features for version 1.8, released May 29th, 2001.
- Support for qmail style maildir systems. Should work automatically if you
have maildir setup properly. Or point xlassie to a directory instead of a
file, and it will keep track of the number of files in it. Thanks to Pitt
Murmann for inspiration.
- Backup font selection system. XLassie will try a list of builtin font
names if it can't find the default font.
Bugfix version 1.7, released March 16th, 2001.
- Fixed the -mailcommand feature. A bit of code was missing so the
option wasn't recognized.
- KDE mode didn't work with KDE2.1 due to a typo in the KDE documentation.
New features for version 1.6, released Feb 15th, 2001.
- Works with the KDE2 panel now.
- New option to run a command when new mail arrives. You could have
this download your mail or play a, "You have mail," mp3 file.
- A couple bug fixes for some IMAP servers.
New features for version 1.5, released Jan 13th, 2000.
- KDE panel applet support. If you have KDE running, XLassie should
automatically get put inside the panel and choose a smaller default font that
better fits the space inside the panel.
- WindowMaker dock applet support. If you have WindowMaker running, XLassie
should automatically get put inside a dock tile, turn on shape mode, and use a
larger default font.
- DeleteWindow support. The little 'X' that some window managers have to
exit a program will now work.
New features for version 1.4, released Sep 11th, 1999.
New features in version 1.3, released Jan 1st, 1999.
- IMAP mode. Will query an IMAP server. Thanks to Stacy Seagle for the
- Bug fixed in apop3 mode, thanks to Lars Svensson for pointing it out.
- New POP3 mode, -apop3, which downloads message headers in an attempt
to figure out which messages are new and which aren't.
- Offline mode, -offline, causes an 'X' to be displayed as the mail count
when the POP3 server can't be reached. Good for modem users who aren't always
on the net.
There are a few new features in version 1.1, released June 17th.
- Portability fixes, POP3 should work on Digital Unix and Solaris now.
