Release Notes: This release collects patch PL110a. The bug reporting address was changed, and some other changes were made. The email address of the author was changed.

Release Notes: This release includes patches PL109a and PL109b. Security fixes introduced in PL109S are included. A bogus charset initialization error caused by a missing global elm.mimecharsets file is fixed. Some enhancements to the l)imit command are introduced. This release also fixes extra "[Keeping all messages.]" messages introduced in the PL109a fix. The file MIME.txt compares Elm ME+ to MIME conformace criteria.

Release Notes: A potential security problem was fixed on systems where Elm ME+ is setgid "mail", and the system does not support POSIX saved IDs. On such systems, there is a possibility that Elm ME+ can read or write some files which are readable or writable by the "mail" group. Note that these fixes can not be complete. At least, there is a race condition problem, and to close that race condition Elm ME+ must drop privileges temporarily, and that requires POSIX saved IDs.

Release Notes: This release collects the Elm2.4ME+ PL108a (25) patch, adds the elmrc variable "prompt-after-metamail", changes the iconv:auto-charset elmrc option to also apply to defined but unknown charsets, makes some changes to elm tools, adds binary mmappable file for charset tables for ASCII types and one-byte-map, and adds the O)verride charset command. In elm tools, there is new command called "elmbindata".

Release Notes: This release includes the PL107a patch, adds the "invoke e)ditor" command to the header editing screen, enhances the internal mailcap parser, and fixes some bugs. The new elmrc options, "internal-mailcap-trusted-programs" and "internal-mailcap-prompt-trusted", were added.
