Version 4.72 is a maintenance release for v4.71 containing the following changes:
Note: at the time of writing, one anti-virus service (Baidu) is reporting that
the WinPMail v4.72 release archive contains malware: given that 55 other anti-virus
services on VirusTotal report the archive as being clean, this is clearly a false
positive and can be reliably ignored (to confirm this, we unpacked the files,
repacked them, then signed the new archive with a different certificate, and
the Baidu warning went away, indicating that the Baidu scanner is incorrectly
detecting something based on our code signing certificate rather than anything
in the actual archive itself).
- Fixes a problem introduced in v4.71 where the mail queue would
not correctly update or send mail when the 'Send now' button was
pressed (you had to close and reopen the queue or draft manager
window and send the messages a second time to make them go out).
- Includes an updated version of Martin Ireland's MAPI interface,
which will work correctly with current builds of LibreOffice.
- The option to "Add to addressbook" when right-clicking
an address in a message now works correctly.
- A full German version of v4.72 has been released at the same time
as the English version.
While the seemingly endless process of updating code and preparing for Pegasus
Mail version 5 continues, it has become clear that it is time to bring out an update
that incorporates fixes and corrections that would benefit many users. The main changes
in this release are:
New PCONFIG A completely new version of the Pegasus Mail configuration
utility PCONFIG has been provided in this release. While most users will never need
to run PCONFIG, for those that do, the old version was becoming a major problem -
the new version should address that.
New OpenSSL build This release of Pegasus Mail includes OpenSSL version
1.0.1p, the most recent version we have found in testing to be reliably usable with all
major online services.
SSL performance fixes SSL performance should be markedly improved in
this release, especially during SMTP sending.
Addressbook fixes It is now possible to delete and rename addressbooks
in the program. The 'add sender's address to addressbook' option should now work
again, various other small corrections have been made in addressbook-related
Messages stuck in the queue A problem where 0-length files in the
outgoing SMTP queue could not be reliably deleted from within the program has
been fixed (at last).
New builds of IERenderer and BearHTML Michael and Martin have
produced versions of the modules that display HTML data in mail messages for
this release: the new versions improve stability and rendering quality.
Spellchecking changes Some changes to the way the spellchecker
operates been made that should improve its usefulness to those who use it (in
particular, a problem where the 'Don't send' button was missing during send-time
spellechecks has been corrected).
New SpamHalter build This release includes a new build of Lukas
Gebauer's fine SpamHalter Bayesian anti-spam filter with improved reliability
Full German Release Sven Henze has produced a full German
version of v4.71, which can be downloaded from the same page as the English
There are also numerous other smaller fixes in this build.
