Software News   Software News : YAM 2.5 released
   posted by damato on 23-Dec-2007 1:28:16 (4298 reads)
The YAM (Yet Another Mailer) open source development team is pleased to announce the immediate release of its stable 2.5 version. After nearly 5 years of constant, restless development, the 2.5 version is the currently most stable and most advanced version of the famous Amiga e-mail suite.


The 2.5 version, apart from very important bug fixes, comes with a largely enhanced user interface with new capabilities like, e.g. an embedded read pane functionality to directly read e-mails without having to open separate read windows. Or even a new search bar allows to quickly search for e-mails or sort them according to predefined categories. Furthermore, YAM was largely reworked internally to perform not only more securely and less cumbersomely. It also comes with important technical enhancements like non-blocking I/O based socket connections allowing the GUI to become more responsive or improved compatibility to common internet standards (RFC). In addition, large internal reworks were performed to be able to implement features like IMAP support or native HTML mail display in one of the next versions.

Therefore, we are indeed very happy to supply you this stable 2.5 release not only right before Christmas, but also right before we are going to start on working on some more interesting things in the upcoming year.

Please download the latest version of YAM from:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=13560

Also have a look at the official YAM homepage for more updates on the 2.5 release:
http://www.yam.ch/

Enjoy the 2.5 version and happy yamming...
Your YAM Open Source Team

On Launching I get an error message, I can't sort out.

Quote:
An error occured while trying to load the image file
"Work2:Internet/Yam/Themes/default/config/config_lists_big"
via datatypes

Please maker sure that the file exists and that you have your datatypes system correctly setup (e.g. that the image displays properly with multiview.

(23/12/2007 12:14)

On looking at that file icon info says it is a png file but if I click on it multiview treats it as if it is an audio file i.r. a play button in a window ready to be played. The other images in that directory are also png files and are displayed correctly.

Any help gratefully received.

Temporarily move your mpeg audio descriptor and datatype to a safe place, reboot, and try again.
If this turns out to be your problem, try the repaired descriptor on OS4depot.

http://os4depot.net/index.php?function=showfile&file=datatype/sound/mpegadt.lha

From the readme:

New in version 20.5:

No change except descriptor file.

- improved descriptor file again. Now ignores RIFF WAVE files and
files with only one frame (e.g. small PNG pictures)

In that directory are all the png files for the GUI, and they are also png files, some larger and some smaller, and they display correctly.

Regardless of what you see, please try what I suggested.
Remove the mpeg audio descriptor from SYS:devs/datatypes and reboot.
This will help isolate your problem.

Hmm, tried that and it opens correctly.
I'll try the descriptor from OS4Depot now.

Thanks

You're welcome. Same problem can supposedly cause DSI's in some cases.
Original reason stated was a faulty mpeg audio descriptor, but...
Later research proved the bug in libmad (mpega.library) that was described years ago and sometimes denied.
Author has been contacted, but that was 9 months ago.
Until then, imo, the "new" descriptor is a workaround for an issue that needs to be solved in the library itself.
(this according to YAM dev team)
