OmniBiff is a universal "biff" program able to monitor multiple email servers of virtually any type, incliding UNIX mail, POP3, IMAP4, Hotmail.com, Yahoo.com, and more. OmniBiff can display alerts graphically or act as a proxy for other biff programs.
What's New in This Release:
· Added embedded lisp capability in HTTP-based bifflets.
· Added encryption for passwords stored in the configuration file.
· Re-organized the source code and packages.
· Now configures with autoconf (configure/make/make install)
· Added scripts for running omnibiff and the configurator (omnibiff and omnibiff-setup)
· Bugs fixed:
· Hotmail bifflet updated for latest website changes.
· Yahoo bifflet updated for latest website changes.
· Unix bifflet now has better integration with Evolution. Evolution doesn't update the message status in the mail file when messages are read, but it does add an X-Evolution field when mail has been "seen" by Evolution.
· Http bifflets now use the USER-AGENT specified in the XML file. If one is not specified, the USER-AGENT field will be omitted in HTTP requests. This was necessary for the Lycos bifflet since it uses USER-AGENT to decide whether or not to gzip-encode the HTML pages, regardless of what was specified in the ACCEPT-ENCODING request field.
· Bifflets added:
· ZipLip (www.ziplip.com). Note that ziplip uses your full email address (email@example.com) as the username.
· LycosMail (mail.lycos.com)
· Bifflets removed:
· Visto, Deja, BusinessWeekMail, Alta-Vista. These websites have discontinued email service.
