Release Notes: Syslog has been changed to avoid hanging when debugging. Some login methods have been fixed. Multiple instances not used after some time are fixed. Support for detection of Atom processors has been added, and there is more support for service installation (/etc/init).
Release Notes: The 0.9.11 distribution was missing the config.guess and config.sub files. A very old and rare bug has been found: simultaneous login to the same mailbox using the user home directory mailbox location might cause a glibc dump. It would overwrite about 4 KB of the beginning of the mailbox. However, GNU pop3d would recover all the remaining messages.
Release Notes: This is a branch of the original POP3 program written by Jakob Kaivo. The major addition since the last freshmeat announcement is support for virtual domains. Bugs have been fixed and this release is more fail-safe. There are speed improvements, optional user Message Disposition Notification, POP-before-SMTP, UIDL, and 64-bit support. The server is still small, fast and reliable.
Release Notes: This release merges patches from the current Debian package.
Release Notes: Name change to GNU pop3d from IDS POP, bug fix to stop hanging server processes.
Release Notes: Several bugfixes for various clients (Netscape 3.x, Windows telnet), bugfix for random deletion problem, idle timeout command line option, and command line option for listening on different ports. Because of a thus-far unreported bug that may cause messages to be erroneously deleted, upgrading to this release is strongly recommended.
Release Notes: Added APOP support, autoconf improvements, and bugfixes.
Release Notes: PAM now drops privileges, MAILSPOOLHOME and PAM work together, if the MAILSPOOLHOME file is not found, it falls back to the standard mailspool, closed some memory leaks and fixed various other bugs.
Release Notes: Better memory management, removal of dependency on GNU getopt (fixes -d [number] bug), more portable locking functions and better PAM support.
Release Notes: Using a linked list for deleted messages, lots of code cleanups, PAM framework (doesn't work yet), support for non standard mailbox locations, now using autoconf for configuration, fixed namespace pollution, proper signal handling, improved package format support (new: debian, improved: rpm) as well as various other things.
