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

This version is second official NaSMail release. It contains security updates
and some code improvements. 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 1.4.10. Some of the issues reported in SquirrelMail 1.4.10
security advisories don't apply to NaSMail 1.0 version.


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

* Ported SquirrelMail 1.4.10 fixes.
* Removed PHP 4.0.x support.
* Pages use HTML standard compliance rendering mode instead of quirks mode 
  used in 1.0.
* Started work on PHP6 compatibility. You must pass src/configtest.php checks 
  without fatal errors in order to use NaSMail on PHP6.

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. If plugins use
functions introduced in SquirrelMail 1.4.10 or depend on quirks of 1.4.10 
session functions, they will be broken. 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
==================

"Thomomys bottae" is binomial name of Botta's pocket gopher, medium-sized rodent
living in North America. Since 1.1 version NaSMail uses logo with gopher as 
default logo image.


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:
