Release Notes: This version adds support for downloading WWW image galleries by crawling through index sites that constantly provide fresh links to galleries. Content can be selected by requiring the link descriptions to match given regex patterns. The links will be remembered to avoid re-crawling. In addition, files in the database can now be tagged and viewed with keywords. Various small code fixes were done.
Release Notes: This is mostly a maintenance version that fixes some bugs and makes PIMPPA build on the MySQL 5.x series. As a new feature, decoded files can now be automatically discarded based on their content by using user-programmable scripts. A sample script that discards JPEG files that are too small is provided.
Release Notes: This version features the ability to accept only messages from newsgroups that match (or mismatch) one or more regexps from a given set of patterns. The regexps can be specific to file area context. Some small bugs have been fixed and other minor features introduced.
Release Notes: Support was added for decoding yencoded (yEnc) binaries from newsgroups. The ./configure script was fixed to be able to locate atypical MySQL installations.
Release Notes: The broken installation routine in v0.5.5 was fixed. This only concerns new users, not those who are upgrading from some previous version.
Release Notes: An important security update, making the software usable in multiuser systems. Some minor feature enhancements (e.g., download limiting) and bugfixes are also included.
Release Notes: This version adds user-specifiable RegExp rules for file moving and killing. The rules (and assignment patterns) can function either globally or in specified filearea groups. For those who want even more control, support for suckkillfile has been restored.
Release Notes: This version features support for multiple news servers and some bugfixes.
Release Notes: Ability to skip incomplete multipart postings, a bunch of other small changes, and almost total configurablity without recompilation.
Release Notes: This version wastes much less bandwidth when downloading news. Article headers are used to determine the filenames and only interesting articles are downloaded, e.g. if the file within the article doesn't seem a duplicate or otherwise unsuitable.
