Gotmail 0.8.9 Released! April 23, 2006 - The Gotmail project, a perl script which downloads mail from hotmail.com without user interaction, released version 0.8.9 today. This release fixes the hotmail redirect error people were getting with version 0.8.8. In the future, the Gotmail Project looks to add support for the new Hotmail beta which uses AJAX technology and a refined interface to provide a better user experience. The project seeks developers who might be interested in submitting code to become compatible with this new service. Another feature that is desired by the development community is integration with other applications, such as Novell's Evolution e-mail client (http://www.gnome.org/projects/evolution). Already included in this release is a simple script for transporting one's hotmail into evolution. What would make for a strong feature is to develop a plugin which directly uses gotmail to check one's hotmail account from within Evolution. The Gotmail development community thrives off of users of the script, and ask for people to visit http://gotmail.sf.net/ to test out the latest version, file bug reports, and join the development process. Itemized list of major changes: * applied cageek's patch to fix 0.8.8's error: "Hotmail's page structure has changed! (redirloc)" Packages ready for download:(Continue reading)
