This fixes bug 901359 (reported and fixed by Nicolas Ecarnot). release 4.5.1: * a bug which causes messages to be skipped during listing/archiving process under some circumstances was fixed (bug 872838: reported by Blake Gonzales) release 4.5.0: * support for mbx mailboxes has been added. --format option can be used to specify which type of mailbox must be processed (Thanks to Juergen Edner). * a working directory is now used to handle temporary mailboxes before real actions take place.

With this mode, messages are simply deleted from the original mailbox(es) (Thanks to Scott Thompson) * mailboxes handling was improved; binary files are skipped * help and documentation were improved * minor bugs were fixed release 4.2.0: * support for multiple regexp archiving was added. If -x is specified more than once, the message is regexp matched against the given rules, and if it satisfies any, will be archived * minor changes to output release 4.1.0: * an harmless warning issued if any header of the email message is undefined was fixed * full name for archive mailbox is used if recursion is specified * reports for list mode were slightly improved release 4.0.0: * code was cleaned and improved * install script was removed. A configure script and a makefile are used instead * option --probe-helpers was removed as it's no longer needed release 3.1.1: * a bug in options handling was fixed. Option -r is now handled correctly release 3.1.0: * recursive archiving of a tree of mailboxes is now supported * the correct path for shell helpers is now probed by the install script at installation time (Thanks to Davor Ocelic) release 3.0.4: * option -s (soft check) was removed since it's no longer needed * a minor bug which causes the script to crash if the beginning line of a message contains time zone information was fixed (Reported and fixed by Alex Aminoff) release 3.0.3: * a rare bug which may leads to messages loss was fixed (Reported by Alex Aminoff) release 3.0.2: * regular expressions archiving support for fields "cc" and "bcc" was added * man page was reformatted release 3.0.1: * an harmless bug in the handler of compressed archived mailbox was fixed * output formats for list mode were improved release 3.0.0: * support for multiple mailboxes was added release 2.1.0: * code was cleaned * shell helpers handling was improved * messages archiving can be explicitly forced (-a) * bzip2 compression support was added * man page was added release 2.0.1: * a stupid bug which prevents custom extension of archive mailbox to be handled correctly was fixed. release 2.0.0: (All improvements contributed by Davor Ocelic) * script is now called archmbox , instead of archmbox.pl. * version can now only be obtained with --version. * locations of helper apps can be detected at runtime. * option -l to only list messages which will be archived was added. * option -v now means verbosity (1 or 2, for 1 or 2 lines of output per message); level 1 is the default. * option -r which reverses the sense of date offset was added (see README). * use -n to avoid printing page header when in list mode (-l) * regular expression based messages archiving (beside the offset and date) was added. You can match messages by regexp rules on arbitrary field. Getoptions routine does not support stacked variables, so you cannot do regexp on multiple fields at once (regexp is *case insensitive*, and fields can be: from, envelope, sender, messageid, date, xmailer, to, subject or type). * we no more link /usr/bin/archmbox to /usr/local/bin/archmbox at installation point. release 1.0.0: * A backup of the mailbox can be created before running the script. * The full path of the mailbox can be used for archive mailbox. * Archive mailbox can be compressed on the fly. * A loose check on messages beginning can be performed. * Install script and documentation were improved. release 0.3.2: * A bug which led to a wrong recognition of the beginning of a message was fixed. * The default location of shell helpers can be configured. release 0.3.1: * A bug which prevents a correct handling of archive mailbox's path was fixed. release 0.3.0: * Support for long options was added. * Mailbox ownership and permissions are kept after script runs (Thanks to Paco Regodon) * Archmbox aborts if the mailbox is in use or has been changed during execution. (Thanks to Paco Regodon) release 0.2.1: * Part of the code was rewritten to fix a problem under *BSD systems (Reported by Bob Bernstein) * Performance was improved. * Threshold date for messages age can be now specified as an offset (in days) from today. * It's possible to specify in which directory archive mailbox must be saved. * Archive mailbox's extension can be customized. * Install script has been changed: archmbox is now linked to /usr/bin/archmbox release 0.2.0: * The default name of the archive mailbox was changed. * Archived messages are now appended to the archive mailbox to allow multiple executions of the script against the same mailbox. * Date must be now specified in the format yyyy-mm-dd. release 0.1.5: * minor output improvements. release 0.1.4: * install script added. release 0.1.3: * help informations improved. release 0.1.2: * fixed some minor errors. release 0.1.1: * fixed some minor errors. release 0.1.0: * first public release.
