All about this release
======================

This version is first official NaSMail release. It contains lots of rewrites 
and backports from SquirrelMail 1.5.x codebase. See ChangeLog for a full list.


Locales / Translations / Charsets
=================================

The translations for NaSMail are not part of the main package and must be 
downloaded separately. You can find these packages through our homepage. They 
also contain instructions on how to install.

Lightweight version of extra decoding library is included in core package. You 
don't have to install extra decoding library scripts, if your PHP installation 
supports recode or iconv.

Security Issues
===============

This NaSMail release contains fixes for all known security issues reported and 
fixed in SquirrelMail 1.4.9a.


Major updates
=============

* Added STARTTLS support to IMAP and SMTP libraries.
* Replaced internal gettext library with php-gettext classes.
* Added SquirrelMail msg_flags and image_buttons patches.
* Rewrote theme layout.
* Removed some old style option hooks and added new hooks.
* Added web based setup script.
* Changed presets


A note on plugins
=================

There have been major plugin architecture updates in NaSMail. Plugins designed
for SquirrelMail 1.4.8 might work in NaSMail with some quirks. Plugins must be 
updated to use new internationalization code. If plugins use older option 
hooks, they must be updated to use option widgets.


About Release Name
==================

Baltica is a Late Proterozoic-Early Palaeozoic continent that now includes the 
East European craton of northwestern Eurasia. ~600 million years ago, Baltica 
was part of the major supercontinent Pannotia. It separated from Pannotia in 
Cambrian period.

This release name was selected because main NaSMail developer lives in Eastern
Europe. When NaSMail codebase separated from SquirrelMail, only one translation
was included in NaSMail.


Reporting NaSMail bugs
======================

We constantly aim to make NaSMail even better. So we need you to submit any bug
you come across! Also, please mention that the bug is in this release, and list
your IMAP server and webserver details.

   https://gna.org/bugs/?group=nasmail

Thanks for your cooperation with this. That helps us to make sure nothing slips
through the cracks. Also, it would help if people would check existing tracker
items for a bug before reporting it again. This would help to eliminate 
duplicate reports, and increase the time we can spend CODING by DECREASING the 
time we spend sorting through bug reports. And remember, check not only OPEN 
bug reports, but also closed ones as a bug that you report MAY have been fixed 
in development code already.

Any questions about installing or using NaSMail can be directed to our user 
support list:
