Gotmail 0.8.8 Released!

Filed under
Software

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."

Full Announcement.

Hotmail

Hard to believe there is anyone out there that uses a Hotmail account for anything other then sending spam.

I've been blocking inbound Hotmail traffic from all my SMTP servers for years as one of my general reduce spam setup measures.

    It's been five almost five months since the developers behind the Debian-based Devuan GNU/Linux operating system launched the second Beta version towards the first stable release of the OS, and they now announced the Release Candidate. The Devuan project continues its vision of providing a libre Debian fork without using the systemd init system, and the Release Candidate (RC) version brings the GNU/Linux distribution closer to a final release. The interesting fact is that this RC appears to be stable enough to be used for production work.
