Software News   Software News : YAM 2.6 released!
   posted by tboeckel on 22-Feb-2010 9:19:12 (2897 reads)
Hi!

After more than two years of constant development we are proud to tell you that YAM 2.6 has finally been released!

This is a brief list of the most important changes since 2.5:


- updated translations for czech, french, german, greek, italian and swedish language.
- updated default theme images by Martin 'Mason' Merz.
- added import and export functions for alien address books (i.e. XML files as used by SimpleMail).
- AmigaOS4.1's new notification system will can used to inform the user about new received mails.
- improved handling of header lines in general and especially malformed header lines by certain Microsoft software.
- improved download and export speed of mails by optimizing the amount of data shown on the screen. Overall the speed increased about 200%.
- improved the spam handling by treating the user's address book as a white list.
- rewritten RFC2047 and RFC2822 routines to match the current RFC recommendations.
- individual character sets can now be configured for reading and writing mails instead of having one character set for all actions.
- improved ARexx command handling and extended command set.
- all error messages which occured during a mail transfer now include the account name to make it easier to spot the faulty account in case a user has more than one account at the same provider.
- mail attachments are displayed as a scrollable virtual group to be able to show an unlimited number of files.
- all balance object use the new NBalance.mcc class which supports custom mouse pointers.
- foreign characters with a mail may be converted to either "?" or similar look alike characters.
- reduced overall stack usage by using dynamically allocated memory when needed.
- the text font and style can be configured independently for reading and writing mails .
- the spam training data can be optimized to keep the data base small by removing very rarely used word.
- made the date scanning of birthdays locale aware.
- added various AROS versions (i386, ppc, x86_64).
- added NOSPLASHWINDOW tooltype to start/quit YAM silently.
- on AmigaOS4.1 the new URL: device will be preferred over openurl.library to invoke a browser.
- lots of other improvement we don't remember right now (keep in mind: more than 2 years of development was put into YAM 2.6!)

Have lots of fun with this new release!

I think I'll give it a try - switching from the webbased email clients I usually use.

i wonder why it's not saving the prefs, for example, aiss instead of default.
it's a bit mess with catalogs too. i use english but somewhere there must be an error with the correct iso characters.

What part of the config is not saved? You change the theme and upon the next restart the old theme is still active? If that is the case then you didn't activate the new theme. But this is exactly the same procedure as with YAM 2.5. Either double click the theme entry in the list or click on the "Activate" button below the list. You will then get a requester telling you that you must save the config and restart YAM. Otherwise the changed theme will be discarded.

Sorry, but I don't know what you are talking about. What exactly is wrong?? If you are using english language then you don't need any catalog file at all, because english strings are built in.

Come on guys!! Is it really that hard to give some specific and detailed informations about problems? A simple "it doesn't work" is not enough and will be ignored!

Great Thanks for this, updated!

I get a problem with the english-british catalog though, (first time I've ever bothered with it ...) YAM claims it's found a catalog for my language with the wrong version. The catalog has version 7.1

I can happily put up with yankee-english ofcourse but what might I have done wrong?

I installed over my 2.5 installation using the install script.

yes my friend it is if english is not your language and you're talking to an international forum.
so please don't get anger with this. now, you were right about the ''activate'', it's working.
as for the catalogs i will grab some screenshots and i will e-mail you.
sorry about any misunderstanding...
