  • REGRESSION FIXES:
  • Fix compilation with OpenSSL implementations before 0.9.8m that lack SSL_CTX_clear_options. Patch by Earl Chew. Note that the use of older OpenSSL versions with fetchmail is unsupported and *not* recommended.
  • BUG FIXES:
  • Fix combination of --plugin and -f -. Patch by Alexander Zangerl, to fix Debian Bug#671294.
  • Clean up logfile vs. syslog handling, and in case logfile overrides syslog, send a message to the latter stating where logging goes.
  • CHANGES:
  • The build process can now be made a bit more silent and concise through ./configure --enable-silent-rules, or by adding "V=0" to the make command.
  • WORKAROUNDS:
  • Make Maillennium POP3 workarounds less specific, to encompass Maillennium POP3/UNIBOX (Maillennium V05.00c++). Reported by Eddie via fetchmail-users mailing list, 2012-10-13.

New in version 6.3.15 (March 29th, 2010)

  • The repository has been converted and moved from the Subversion (SVN) format
  • kindly hosted by Graham Wilson over the past years to Git format hosted on
  • Gitorious.org.My deepest thanks to Graham Wilson for this service that
  • kept us going when BerliOS's Subversion service was faulty in its early days.
  • This opportunity was used to convert BRANCH_6-2 and BRANCH_1-9-9 to
  • GnuPG-signed tags, as a sign that these are now closed.
  • The outdated SVN trunk is now called "oldtrunk" in Git just to save the work
  • for future reference. All development in the past few years was on BRANCH_6-3.
  • master was branched from BRANCH_6-3.BRANCH_6-3 is now obsolete (and in fact
  • was also converted to a tag to record where the conversion from SVN to Git
  • took place).
  • "make check" now skips HTML validation if xmllint or XHTML DTD are missing.
