    Release Notes: The constructed "From " line assumes EDT instead of the machine's timezone (which makes the test cases pass in timezones other than EDT), a generalized start-of-email pattern to improve dbx processing, and a fix for a potential infinite loop in mailbox reading.

    •  04 Apr 2000 21:12

      Release Notes: Use of Date::Manip to construct the date for the "From" header correctly based on the "From:" and "Date:" headers, new tests, restructured code, and moved the project to SourceForge.

      •  29 Mar 2000 18:44

        Release Notes: Improved parsing of emails, generated header "From" now uses sender's email address, and quoted headers are no longer mistakenly processed.

        •  03 Feb 2000 20:04

          Release Notes: Improved parsing of emails at the expense of speed for mailboxes with large attachments, a -c flag for more aggressive removal of odd characters in email bodies, and a debugging mode (-d).
