Welcome to POPFile v1.0.0
POPFile is an email classification tool with a Naive Bayes classifier,
POP3, SMTP, NNTP proxies and IMAP filter and a web interface. It runs
on most platforms and with most email clients.
This version is a bug fix and minor feature release. It's also the
first release to have the version number 1. This is because we've
finally decided to stop pretending that POPFile is 'beta' software :-)
WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE v0.22.5
1. Changes to the IMAP module / Support for Gmail IMAP
The IMAP module will now use only one connection to the IMAP server,
instead of one connection for each watched folder. This means that
when using IMAP mode, POPFile will be much lighter on the server and
will even work with IMAP servers that are restrictively configured or
if you have many buckets. As a consequence, you should now be able to
let POPFile sort your email on Google's Gmail.
Please refer to the setup instructions on the POPFile wiki:
2. Nihongo improvements
Japanese (Nihongo) text does not use spaces between words so POPFile
uses a 'Nihongo Parser' to split the text into words to allow the text
to be analysed properly. Up until now POPFile has used the 'Kakasi'
parser when analysing Japanese text. The 1.0.0 release offers a choice
of three parsers (Kakasi, MeCab and internal). The new
'bayes_nihongo_parser' configuration parameter is used to specify the
parser to be used (the default parser is Kakasi).
The Windows installer lets the user select the Nihongo parser to be
installed. All of the files needed for the Kakasi and internal
parsers are included in the installer. The MeCab package size is about
13 MB (i.e. too big to include in the installer) so it will be
downloaded from the Internet if the MeCab parser is selected when
Other Nihongo changes: fixed a bug that the history table in the UI
was not being shown correctly when invalid characters were used in the
From, To and Cc headers in Nihongo mode; fixed a bug in the shortening
of Subjects in the history table.
3. Installer improvements
To make it easier to add SSL support after installing POPFile the
installer now creates an "Add/Remove Programs" entry which allows SSL
support to be added by downloading and installing the necessary
support files. This entry also allows the Nihongo parser to be changed
and will download the MeCab package if necessary.
The installer and uninstaller have been upgraded to work better when
used on Vista, especially when run from a standard user account. Many
of these improvements also apply to Windows XP. For example the
uninstaller is now less likely to leave Start Menu shortcuts behind.
4. UI improvements
Change the default skin choice to simplyblue. Add two new skins,
coolmint and ocean. Drop less popular skins: klingon, prjbluegrey,
and prjsteelbeach. Merge nearly duplicate tinydefault and lrclaptop
with smalldefault. Add a little bit of polish to many of the others.
5. Other improvements
Performance improvement in analyzing e-mails. Encoded attachment file
names are now decoded. Fixed a bug that missed some e-mail addresses.
