The Gotmail project, a perl script which downloads mail from hotmail.com without user interaction, released version 0.8.8 today. This is a simple maintenance release with only a few basic bug fixes applied including better dealing with spaces in folder names and extra lines in config files.
While normally the project releases versions with more changes, the development community decided that releasing with some bug fixes is a priority. This is especially true now that the program, Gotmail, already accomplishes its primary goal of "downloading mail from hotmail.com."
