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
