[leafnode-list] RELEASE CANDIDATE: leafnode-1.9.33.devel2
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
after some more bugfixing, leafnode-1.9.33 is ready to be released. To
get some more testing, I have made leafnode-1.9.33.devel2 available at
http://mandree.home.pages.de/leafnode/ -- please test thoroughly
(particularly fetching and delaybody mode as well as pseudo articles
appearing when they need to). leafnode-1.9.33.devel2 is supposed to have
release quality and should become 1.9.33 on Monday or Tuesday.
Here's the NEWS file excerpt:
* 1.9.33, 2003-01-XX
o Ralf Wildenhues fixed two subtle bugs in signal handling again, making sure
we don't warp backwards in the program flow when ^C is pressed twice.
o Fix local article number extraction again, along the lines suggested by
Fumiaki Miura. This bug marked the wrong article for download if a header
of the structure "Xref: my.ser.ver abcabc:20 abc:10" was in the article.
o Fix client hang when an article had suffered corruption and its Message-ID
could not be retrieved. Also consider the article broken and unlink it.
o Pseudo article display was fixed for newsgroups that were once there but
that have expired without their article pointers reset in the groupinfo file.
o Switching delaybody off no longer makes bodies of article headers retrieved
before the switch inaccessible. (affects leafnode, fetchnews)
### CHANGES: documentation
o Options added since 1.9.20 now appear with the leafnode version when the
option was introduced in the manual pages.
### CHANGES: fetchnews
o Leafnode will now use the "ARTICLE" command to download articles if no
filterfile is defined or if the new "article_despite_filter" option is set
and "delaybody" is off. This speeds up article download, particularly on
high-latency links such as interleaved DSL or satellite links.
o There is a new global option, "article_despite_filter", defaults to 0 for
o There is a new per-server option, "noread", which defaults to 0 and is
therefore compatible with previous releases of leafnode.
If set, the server is not queried for active files or articles (but
skipped), but posting to this server is still tried. Useful to complement
"nopost". Courtesy of Dmitry Samersoff <dsamersoff@xxxxxxxxx>.
o Fetchnews compares the local clock to that of the upstream server it's
talking to if the upstream supports the "DATE" command, and warns if both
clocks are more than 10 minutes apart (but the program will continue for
### CHANGES: leafnode
o The DATE command is now supported.
