dmailbd5 is a mail-fetching protocol (and implementation) designed to be much more efficient over low-speed high-latency links than POP3 or IMAP4. It uses strong encryption/authentification and compresses the data for transport. First tests showed speed advantages over POP3-over-ssh in the range of 10-20 times faster. My dmailb5 Implementation includes a server and a client working both with Maildirs. Up to now I haven't made up a package, it is not quite ready but I use it for my own mail.

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.
