Retchmail is the world's most stupidly fast POP3 retriever. It is almost completely unlike fetchmail: retchmail lacks features, isn't particularly robust (although it won't delete a message until sendmail says it was delivered okay), has nearly no documentation, and is actually very fast. Retchmail uses near-zero-latency, but not negative latency. It is based on the WvStreams C++ networking library.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
