    Release Notes: Users can now store passwords in the Apple Keychain if running on OS X. There is an important bugfix to an endless loop in TLS handling. It is recommended that 0.4.16 users upgrade.

      Release Notes: This version adds the ability to set the background color using -bg, will frobnicate internally stored passwords in memory (see memfrob(3)), and is paranoid about making sure passwords aren't leaked into hostnames when misconfigured. Recent releases have fixed portability to OS X, Solaris, and BSD, allowed wmbiff to be restarted on ctrl-shift-click. A slow file descriptor leak has been fixed.

          Release Notes: This release adds the 'globalnotify' option: when there's new mail in any mailbox, it invokes a single command instead of one per mailbox. The new -skip-certificate-check command line option is for daredevils who are content to use TLS with servers that have bad certificates.

            Release Notes: WMBiff now checks the remote server's TLS certificate against its hostname. It also supports the openbox "slit" by scaling to the number of configured mailboxes: occupying less space if the user only has a few mailboxes, while scaling to a larger window if they have more than five.

                Release Notes: This version of wmbiff ignores sigpipe so that it does not crash during APM suspend/resume cycles. This should only help those using IMAP/TLS on a laptop or desktop machine that suspends. There are also some minor memory handling bugfixes.

                  Release Notes: This version includes an update for GNUTLS 0.4.3, and real IPv6 support. Fonts and color schemes can be changed using standard X -fn, -fg, and -bg. There were several internal cleanups and a migration to autoconf 2.5.

                      Release Notes: IMAP passwords in .wmbiffrc are now optional - WMBiff can invoke ssh-askpass if it is left blank. The new higher contrast color scheme is more readable, and other schemes (skins) can be customized by the user. A new Finger method can check for new mail, and shell expressions (`echo foo`) can choose which mailbox to check. It will check permissions on wmbiffrc to discourage accidental password disclosure. The existing Shell client can now return a short string for the status field. The build system now uses automake/autoconf, and the -geometry option was fixed for Fvwm.
