Release Notes: Handling of the HEAD, STAT, LISTGROUP and SLAVE commands has been fixed to properly comply with the NNTP protocol. The NEWGROUPS command will no longer return the full list of newsgroups when the storage modules are not able to get the creation date of each newsgroup. This release strips whitespace from commands only when the client is not posting a new article. A utility script to help monitor the health of the server has been added.
Release Notes: Many fixes were applied to the storage modules and the server itself to correctly support the NNTP RFC. The 'mbox' storage module should be now considered beta quality. There are fixes to the Phorum authentication module to support MD5 encrypted passwords.
Release Notes: A new storage module based on PostgreSQL for Phorum has been added. There are many fixes to the phpBB storage module that allow Papercut to maintain a correct count of messages in each forum, and a bugfix related to the way Mozilla handles multi-line headers.
Release Notes: The server will now dynamically use a forking-based socket server on Unix platforms and a threaded one on Windows platforms. Several fixes have been applied to correct issues with the phpBB storage module, which should make it somewhat stable.
Release Notes: A new caching module was added to improve performance. Fixes were made to the new phpBB storage module, which is still beta.
Release Notes: A new authentication module for the phpBB storage module and a few fixes to the phpBB storage module were made. This marks the initial support (still considered beta-level) for the phpBB software.
Release Notes: A lot of testing was done regarding the NTTP authentication code. The authentication stuff should be pretty much rock-solid and it was tested successfully using the following Newsreaders: Mozilla Newsreader, Netscape 4.79 Newsreader, Outlook Express, and Knode (KDE's default newsreader).
Release Notes: The various storage modules have been redesigned, and initial code for NTTP authentication was added. New features include a standalone MySQL storage module with no Web front-end, an authentication module for Phorum, and the concept of a 'read-only' / 'read-write' server with password protection. Most (if not all) of the features are working.
Release Notes: A crash bug related to the new word wrap function used on the PhorumMail routine has been fixed. There is also a fix related to the behavior of the NEXT command when no article has been selected. There is some more documentation about the backend system for Papercut (i.e. how to create new containers to store the Usenet articles).
Release Notes: Another small bug related to the LIST NEWSGROUPS command and forums/groups that don't have their information properly configured was fixed. The implementation of the PhorumMail feature of Phorum was rewritten and now sends out a copy of every post if the 'email_list' column on the forum listing table is set. The INSTALL file should be consulted again for a new additional step in the configuration process.
