I finally fixed the bug in 2.5.2 that prevented the remote commands from operating properly. I also ran some regression tests and found many other bugs, all hopefully dead now. :)
A last minute CVS mixup caused an old version of askconfig.py to be packed with the previous beta (2.5.1), making the whole version unusable. If you're using the betas, please upgrade to 2.5.2 immediately.
- The blacklist is gone for good. It caused too many problems and now behaves exactly like the ignorelist; a new command line option to specify the ".askrc" file directly.
- A new configuration variable "rc_junk_unknown_recipients", when set to "yes", will cause ASK to junk the message if it wasn't explicitly sent to one of your recipients in rc_mymails (use with care)
- No more ".py" extensions in the executables! The main executable is now called "askfilter" (important!! update your .procmailrc and .forward files)
- Complete rewrite of the HTML remote commands (it should look a bit better now)
- Removed the "mail-loop" messages (most people disliked it)
- Much cleaner integration with procmail by means of the new "--filter" command-line switch
- Lots of bugfixes and more.
As usual, you may want to check your friendly Changelog file for the whole story.
rc_smtp_validateparameter to "off" in your ".askrc" file.
I'll change ASK as soon as I can to work around the problem.
I hope you enjoy your experience here. :)
Do you have a new feature you'd like to see implemented in ASK? Discuss it in the ASK-users mailing-list. If you prefer the way of the forums (slower response!) you can also post your questions on the ASK's Help Forum. Another way to report bugs and ask for new features is to enter them directly into the Trackers, but it may be a good idea to discuss your problem in the list first.
Remember, if you don't tell us what to do, we can't do it. :)
