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

This NaSMail version adds option to control interface layout. End users can 
choose between standard two frame mode, single frame mode with left folder 
listing disabled and three frame mode with extra frame used to display message
text bellow message listing.

This version also adds option to display sender and recipient columns in one 
mailbox listing.

See list of other changes in ChangeLog.


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 package does not include new security fixes.

Major updates
=============
* Removed support of commercial RBLs in filters plugin.
* Removed soupNazi() and getButton() functions.
* Added interface layout controls.
* Added copy and undelete controls.
* Rewritten abook_take plugin.
* Added support of recipient column in mailbox display.
* Fixed possible issues with big message ids.
* Message display is limited to 64 KB.

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.

If plugins use HTTP Location: redirects, JavaScript or user's password, they 
might need updates to work in NaSMail 1.2+ cookieless mode correctly. If 
interface is used in standard mode with cookies, outdated plugins should work 
without problems.

If plugins are linked to message display (src/read_body.php), they might need
updates to support NaSMail 1.4+ NSM_LAYOUT_PREVIEW mode correctly.

You can find more information about compatibility between NaSMail and plugin 
versions at http://www.nasmail.org/docs/compatibility.shtml.

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

Metastasis is the spread of a disease from one organ or part to another 
non-adjacent organ or part. It usually happens in later stages of cancer. This 
release is dedicated to all the people fighting cancer and other diseases.

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:
