GIFLink 1.12 23 June, 1993
==============================

This quick release is to remove the OAK\37VESA.COM and OAK\67VESA.COM
from the self-extract VESA.EXE. These files are reported by F-PROT to
contain a possible virus.

There is no other change in this release.


About the Butterfly virus
-------------------------

It is unfortunate that the previous distribution of

TM411-4.ZIP
GIFLK110.ZIP
GIFLK111.ZIP

contains a self-extracting VESA.EXE. Inside the VESA.EXE,

OAK\37VESA.COM
OAK\67VESA.COM

are infected by a new "Butterfly" virus. If you see any of the ZIP files
in a BBS, please ask the sysop to remove the files immediately. The files
have since been replaced by

TM411-4A.ZIP
GIFLK112.ZIP

The virus is not found to be dangerous. It is based on the Civil War
Virus. It is only infects .COM files increasing length by 302 bytes. The
virus is 307 bytes long. On execution of an infected program the virus
will search for and infect the next .COM file in the directory list.

The virus can be detected by

F-Prot 2.08a in heuristic and quick scan modes
ThunderByte anti-virus 6.02
Norton anti-virus 2.1 (21A08def)
Virex 2.9

ThunderByte and Norton anti-virus can disinflect the files. F-Prot is
working on a removal program. Unforetunately, McAFEE SCAN 106 DOES NOT
detect the virus but McAREE said SCAN 107 will be able to detect it.

To ensure this distribution is virus-free, we scan all the files with
five independent anti-virus softwares, namely

McAfee SCAN 106
F-Prot 2.08a
ThunderByte anti-virus 6.03
InVircible anti-virus 5.01
Virex 2.9
Microsoft anti-virus




GIFLink 1.11 21 June, 1993
==============================

This quick upgrade is to ensure backward compatibility with the
registration procedure. Registered users of GIFLink 1.00 can apply
the registration procedure to GIFLink 1.11. There is a problem in
GIFLink 1.10 which prohibit the registration procedure.

There is no other change in this upgrade.




GIFLink 1.10 17 June, 1993
==============================

The purpose of this upgrade is to support new features in Telemate,
such as multiple upload and download directories and batch upload and
download status.


What's new in GIFLink
---------------------

. Multiple upload directories can be defined by adding ';' between the
directories. If a file is not found in the first directory, Telemate
will search the second and so on. If the file name contains wildcard
characters, the search will stop when a match is found. For example,
if the upload directory is
C:\TM\UL\;C:\QWK\
specifying *.* will only upload all the files in C:\TM\UL\.

. Multiple download directories can be defined by adding ';' between
the directories with the wildcard between '(' and ')'. You can
specify multiple wildcards for the same directory by adding ','
between the wildcards. For example, if the download directory is
C:\TM\DL\;C:\QWK\(*.QW?);C:\PIC\(*.GIF,*.PCX)
*.QW? files are put into the C:\QWK\ directory, *.GIF and *.PCX
are put into the C:\PIC\ directory, and all other files are put
into the C:\TM\DL\ directory.

. Batch upload status.

. Batch Zmodem download status (if remote protocol drivers transmit the
information, such drivers include DSZ and GSZ).


What's fixed
------------

. Batch upload did not work




GIFLink 1.00 5 Jan, 1993
