Full changes history since early alpha versions
(changes before Version 0.198alpha have been removed)

- now properly prefixes signatures with "-- \n"  instead of "--\n"
- major crash when the level of thread indentation was "too high";
  it now "wraps" the tree when the thread nests too often
- fixed a rather nasty hits orgy/crash when trying to send mails
  without having a newsgroup in the group list
- fixed a bug with retrieving the group list -- when the server
  was too lame to understand "LIST NEWSGROUPS", a spurious error
  message showed up. Also, newsgroups not listed by those comments
  weren't shown at all, instead of simply having no description.

- SMTP send will now silently convert 8bit text to quoted printable
  when the receiving SMTP demon is too lame to understand ESMTP
  8BITMIME bodies. You wouldn't expect this in 1997, really.
- added new Rexx command "ExtractSelectedMsgs FILE,PARTS,APPEND/S"
  to extract currently selected messages into a file. File defaults
  to the username part of the From:, PARTS is either "0"
  for the whole message (default) or a part number.

- ExtractSelectedMsgs PARTS is now a /Keyword, to avoid messup
  with missing filenames
- ExtractSelectedMsgs will now always call upon the standard
  save parts filerequester, unless NOREQ switch is given.
- fixed SMTP send crash
- fixed outgoing quoted-printable encoding
- fixed MIME header encoding

- will now support NList.mcc if installed (V19+)
- fixed aborting of search
- fixed fuzzy index searching
- fixed ExtractSelectedMsgs abort
- ExtractSelectedMsgs now also works in the message
- fixed flags for arexx message call so that internal
  button command syntax is similar to "rx"
- added new menu item, arexx command "DownloadSelected"
  to download all selected messages and store them in
  the database. Only works in the message list.

- now generates X-Priority: and Precedence: headers
  from the "Priority" cycle in the new message window
- now parses X-Priority: header for incoming mails
  (meeting the Eudora "standard")
- now shows the message Priority in the message overview
  in a new column
- sort order in msglist is now visualized with arrows
  in the directional buttons
- it's now possible to dragselect entries in the group
  and message lists
- news-on-demand download window now opens again when
  fetching article takes longer than 2 seconds
- fixed prefs window page listview
- network get now saves all the messages indexes more
  often to prevent index loss due to system crashes

- fixed prefs window
- fixed command calling (again)
- calling MIMEPrefs from the menu now works
- now properly supports MIMEPrefs based viewing

- fixed opening of fonts
- groupmanager window now supports multiselect
- added UseOldStyleLists tooltype/shell arg
  to disable usage of nlist.mcc
- will now DELE mail on the server if it's
  already there locally
- added new ultra hyper cool mail filtering system
  (see Prefs/Message filters). Old filters will no
  longer be used, but are silently converted
  to new filters on first start. Note:
  Execute and Forward To are currently dysfunctional,
  and the filters are only applied to mail ATM.
  (bah, so much work for 6 lines of history
- fixed mouse drag select not properly activating
  "multi select" mode for further operations

- actually, "Contains" behaved like "Is". Lame

- fixed creating of new groups (bogus default
- now permits blanks in group names
- fixed font opening in group list
- main lists now have a 1/1 pixel frame for a less
  cramped look

- fixed background filling in grouplist/msglist,
  and column button widths in msglist

  clipboard in the reader window

- added auto-mail polling (currently fixed to 
  5 minutes)
- it's now possible to rename existant
  newsgroups and mail folders
- fixed lame bug in forward-without-edit: the first
  textual part of the message wasn't properly dumped;
  instead of the body, the header was dumped a
  second time.

- delete flag now has a red led in the message
  reader flags line
- now calls MimePrefs with proper PUBSCREEN argument
- now uses improved high speed textlen/textfit routines
  for much faster reader text layout
- renaming of a mail group now properly renames all
  filter action destinations pointing at that
- now shows a note requester when old-style per group
  filters have been autoconverted into new style filters
- grouplist and msglist now have a 1 pixel line leading
  for a less cramped and classactish look
- fixed various minor miscalculations in the msglist layout

- fixed mime type matching

  MIMEPrefs being installed in AmIRC's directory
- fixed "Filters converted" warning requester

  which don't announce 8BITMIME capability on initial
- no longer marks message as sent when SMTP/NNTP
  failed for some reason
- fixed enforcer hits when clicking into blank space
  in the group list

- fixed mark as sent which was broken in 0.211

- fixed transparent connection reestablishment for 
  "read-on-demand" mode when the server connection
  has timed out for some reason
- auto mail poll will now check for the existance
  of (bsd)socket.library and silently skip the 
  poll if the lib isn't found. Fixes annoying "Need
  a TCP/IP stack, sucker!" requester when stack
  is offline.
- hopefully once and for all fixed the rexx command
- will now send a inform line to active AmIRC's
  if new mail arrives
- reader: parts listview no longer becomes the window
  default object when clicked, thus doesn't effectivly
  disable the keyboard navigation anymore
- serious bug: on a first time installation or when
  changing the data directory, MD would fail to create
  the data directory when it had a trailing slash,
  thus effectivly nuking the database and all mails
  sorted into it. As "PROGDIR:Data/" is the internal
  preset, this happened on all first time installations.

- fixed count in pop gauge for leave mail on server mode
- fixed sending of just every other news/mail on send
- "Move To" window no longer has a bogus scroller when
  using NList.mcc

- filter settings: reworked filter list layout
- filter settings: fixed object disabling problems

  which caused the first char to be always unmarked
- nntp: NNTP authentication is now also performed when
  posting an article <blush>
- pop3: fixed a funny problem with MD-2 reporting the numeric
  part of an username (if any) as the number of queued messages,
  instead of the real number.

- prefs: no longer prepends autoconverted "old style" filters
  with "Autoconv_"
- gui: did various layout cleanups
- gui: "Send" and "Store" in the new mail window now work
  as expected; "Send" will immediately call upon the SMTP
  send module, whereas "Store" will only queue the message.
  Also invented a new mail flag which is only available
  in the SPOOL group named "Hold"

- cmd: fixed a load of problems with the ExtractSelectedMsgs

- general: multiple accounts now work (gee, so few words
  for such a huge change :)
- prefs: did general prefs cleanup to accomodate multiple accounts
- net: now properly supports the Genesis IsOnline() API and will
  skip network operations when no interface is up. The "Send"
  button in new messages now also turns to "Queue" when IsOnline()
  says FALSE.
- gui: new message window now has a "Face?" checkbox to include
  the selected X-Face:

- net: fixed a serious bug in the x-face generation. Note:
  In order to fix this bug, you absolutely MUST reload the
  x-face images in accounts prefs! Also, delete any stale
  message with X-Faces in »SPOOL, otherwise send will not
- net: check for IsOnline() during SMTP/POP was too late
  and would leave a stale window open if offline was
- gui: will now start out with the current Genesis user
  account (can be turned off in accounts prefs)
- prefs: when there are settings missing in an account and you 
  want to get mail for this account, MD pops up the wrong prefs 
  window (should be accounts prefs, not general)
- prefs: group editor was hosed for accounts != 0
- net: outgoing mail messages now have the message-id changed
  from the internally stored, thus they are downloaded again

- net: now changes the "global" Genesis user account when
  switching between accounts within MD-2
- net: when switching an account and failing to login, the
  wrong username would be displayed in the poplist gadget
- db: fixed the bug that cleanup database in one account
  would kill all messages in other accounts. Also rewrote
  db cleanup to use much less memory than before.
- gui: fixed flag setting bug (Forward/Replied)
- gui: fixed account popup sizing problems

- db: serious bug: when switching accounts, possibly pending
  index files were not written to disk properly and thus
  got lost


- gui: now buttons will clip their text if they are not wide
  enough. Should fix MD-2 not opening or even crashing on
  systems which don't have a narrow proportional font installed
  for some obscure reason (e.g. helvetica/9)
- gui: now button shorthelp no longer includes "_" in label names
- gui: now disables account select button during network
- gui: fixed problems with language names in signature prefs
- gui: fixed "Marking used messages" gauge progress (it was
  counting individual messages, not groups, although max
  was set to the group count). Also much faster now.
- net: NNTP module didn't accept a "201 no posting" response
  from NNTP servers
- prefs: serious bug in prefs ID handling caused the filters
  for the second and following accounts to be the same as the
  ones for the first account, missing accountname entries.

- prefs: filter window still had the wrong title
- gui: account switching is now disabled during every
  operation which affects the current account (e.g.
  prefs changes)
- gui: fixed longstanding bug: when multiselecting messages
  or groups and performing an operation which caused 
  deselection, internal "select mode" flag wasn't cleared

0.227 - 0.236 
[left out due rev screwup]

- prefs: when writing back filter settings after changing
  filter prefs, all filters even from other accounts got

- net: now deals with genesis.library being installed, but
  a different TCP/IP stack actually running
- newmsg: won't puke due to lack of Data dir anymore

- net: added special handling of case of a server not
  responding at all, probably due to tcpd locking or stuff

- newmsg: removed a stale Delay( 100 ); in handling sending
  private mails. WTF was *this* from?
- newmsg: now own mails are properly feed through all filters
  as well
- groupmanager: now keeps individual group lists for every

  to include previous Cc: recipiants in the new message.
  Also added new menu item for that.

  message is passed as an argument to the called function.

- gui: fixed "Empty trash"
- gui: fixed a few problems with the "marked" state of
  groups/messages not being properly tracked. Hm, I thought
  I fixed this before?

- db: after saving indexes, MD-2 wasn't resetting the
  "changed" flag, thus causing excessive saving of
  indexes even if not necessary. Crap, and a waste of time.
  This was basically the reason for MD-2 seemingly
  taking ages to send a single mail <ahem>
- db: increased maximum write buffer sizes for writing
  indexes, to speed up saving a bit more

- GUI: added "Copy self?" gadget to new message window
  to disable cloning of messages to the PRIV folder
  or other groups. State is saved when window is closed.
- db: fixed a funny bug which would cause the DEL
  flag to be lost when message indexes were saved
  during reading a group (i.e. due to a new message
- GUI: account selector now is a cycle gadget again
- prefs: added experimental "deleted account" flag.

  extract PGP keys from selected messages in
  one go.

  If existant, MD2 will ask user for passphrase
  and pass it down to PGP. Options for
  remembering passphrase throughout the session or

  within the reader). Will show PGP/MIME messages
  or plain text within the reader, or automatically

  handling which could cause crashes under certain

- Dist: added button and iconify Icons
- Dist: added MicroDot.Guide by Eike Lang
- Dist: added Installer script by
  Robert Reiswig

  account change
- NNTP: synchronous (online) reader wouldn't recover
  from a ARTICLE not found error properly,
  and repeatly issue that error
- GUI: Grouplist/Msglist object could do an illegal
  RectFill() under certain circumstances, thus nuking
  heavily on AGA
- GUI: fixed a funny layout quirk in single window
  mode which could effectivly cause MD2 to layout
  objects with negative X positions, causing
  general havoc
- DB: To/Cc/Bcc popup lists would leave a stale
  file in T: around

- SMTP: the EHLO/8BITMIME fix from 0.262 was
  broken and would use 8BITMIME only if the
  server did NOT announce this capability. Argh.

  gets an POP3 overview, shows mails in a list
  and allows to individually get/ignore/delete

- SMTP: would not escape leading dots properly
  under all circumstances

- GUI: x-face display wasn't centered properly
  by not taking inner spacing into account.

  display space

- Net: added "Esoteric" page to network settings,
  allowing users to change the ports used for

  loaded into memory, MD-2 wouldn't close the
  buffered index file, thus potentially losing data
  when the system crashed while downloading.
- Net: will now save overall transient data structures
  after doing a network fetch (to avoid message
  number mismatchs when crashing -- although this
  was not really a problem, because the numbers in
  the group index are recovered when entering
  a group)

- Net: Status window will now show the "login"
  message of the relevant service which was contacted
- Net: Download manager will now issue a pop3 LIST
  command to get the size of the messages in question
  when necessary (aka, size wasn't returned with the TOP)
- Net: Modified handling of UIDL history. Now UIDL.history
  is only written when "DELETE MAIL ON SERVER" is turned
  off (makes no sense otherwise), and the new UIDLs are only
  written until after the complete message fetch is done
  (to avoid MD-2 skipping messages during the next fetch
  which were lost due to a system crash)
- GUI: Message reader now uses Textinput "NoInput" objects
  for the info lines, thus allowing copy&paste

- Net: fixed obscure behavior when a news server
  would do a "NEXT" properly, but then bail out on

  on NEXT, but puke on the ARTICLE

  window during NNTP fetch
- GUI: "mailto:" URL parser now understands
  Subject= and Body= "arguments"
- GUI: forward info window should now open even
  with excess To: etc. lines

  which don't return the size on RETR (grrr)
- GUI: "Esoteric" prefs changes would only be 
  saved if another prefs item was changed, too.

- Net: NNTP "headers only" mode didn't store
  the NNTP article pointer, thus always
  fetching news groups from scratch. Eeek.

- GUI: newly created accounts had bogus
  values in the "esoteric" page port values
  (this nicely interacted with the broken
  saving fixed in 1.3.4)
- GUI: fake root messages are now removed
  when they don't contain any more childs
- GUI: fake root messages are no longer
  viewed in flat message view
- GUI: newly created fake root messages

  a message inaccessible when the message ID had no
  closing ">" angle bracket (Olli)

- GUI: now uses VAT_GetAppScreenName() to get the
  public screen name; should fix problems with

  (Novell Groupwise) (Olli)

  configurable (Olli)

- Rexx: "NewMsgWin" command now again honours
