More Universals

Category : Technology/popImapUniversals.txt

Hai Hwee has succeeded in building Universal Binaries of UW/POP and IMAP (based on their latest maintenance release, imap-2004g, updated on 15th September 2005), as well as of the saslpasswd2 tool for supporting SASLDB authentication on Tiger.

We've tested a new version of MailServe (ver 2.1), which includes these binaries, on both our PowerPC-based iBooks, as well as on our Intel iMac Core Duo, all running Tiger.

We're now testing these new binaries on Panther, which is still running on one of our Titanium PowerBooks.

We may include these new binaries in an update to Postfix Enabler later. We've got a new Spanish localisation contributed by Pablo Rodriguez, and an update to the German localisation by Stefan Hartmann. We've also attempted a Japanese localisation, which we're asking feedback on. So all these may go into a version 1.2 update of Postfix Enabler.

A Panther update : I can confirm that these new Universal Binaries continue to work on Panther (or at least on 10.3.9).

The Mail We Love to Get

Category : Commentary/feedbackPage.txt

I've created a page containing some of the mail that we've been very happy to be getting. It's getting feedback like these that makes doing this all so worthwhile.

It had started from an idea, or a dream. If there are over 10,000 more Macs being used as Internet servers today because people are using these "enablers" that we've built (assuming there are at least as many people using these software who hadn't paid as had paid), then this is the realisation of that dream.

I wish I had kept more of the feedback. I hadn't expected to be creating a page out of them. But, after all has been said and done, it is these comments that had meant the most to me, and I will put up any new ones that we may be fortunate to be getting, as a celebration of the effort that we've been putting in.

You can access that page here.
