BETA version of a full-featured FidoNet (tm) compatible mailer for U*IX
platform released. The features are ((+) means already implemented, (-)
- not yet implemented):

% FTS-0001(+), YooHoo/2U2(+), EMSI(+) handshake
% Bark(+) and WaZOO(+) file requests, update(+) requests
% "Magic" file requests - send stdout of a program run in responce to the
file request(+)
% Accept incoming calls in cooperation with uugetty (needed fixes to Linux
getty_ps and Gert Doering's mgetty available) (+)
% Locking of dialout devices against simultaneous use with uucico and
others(+)
% Flexible configuration with logical expressions based on nodelist flags,
address of the called system and time of day(+)
% Support for 5d addressing, BinkelyTerm outbound directory structure(+)
% Multiple nodelists(+)
% File transfer protocols: Xmodem(+), Telink/Modem7(+untested), Sealink
w/resync(+), Zmodem 1024(+), ZedZap(+), Janus(-), Hydra(-)
% Outgoing file request is not removed if the session is incomplete(+)
% Incomig file requests are not mixed if several simultaneous sessions
take place (+).
% A special flag file created for a node with which a session started, to
inform the packer that existing arcmail file attaches should no longer
be updated (this flag file is checked by "ifmail" gateway)(-)
% Run on various U*IX platforms: Linux(+), 386BSD(+), SCO(+?), SVR4(+?),
SunOS(+?)
% Have I missed anything?

Together with the mailer program, an updated version of gateway programs
is packed. The features are:

% Designed to cooperate with typical U*IX MTA's and netnews support
packages, can be used for netmail routing (in cooperation with a
U*IX MTA, such as Smail, Zmailer, sendmail).
% Smart SEEN-BY processing makes possible to use it as an echomail
distribution mechanism (in cooperation with c-news or INN)
% Automatic alias database makes "netmail replies" from FidoNet to
Internet easy and independant from the software used on FidoNet side.
% "Backward aliasing" - if some FidoNet address is in the system-wide
alias file, netmail from this address going to Internet gets a
Reply-To: header with that alias @ local host FQDN.
% Much of the header information is preserved and restored in case of
double gatewaying (helps to fight duplicates, analyze routing problems
etc.)
% Attached files are routed with the appropriate fileattach message.
% Support for 5d addressing, BinkelyTerm outbound directory structure(+)
% Run on various U*IX platforms: Linux, 386BSD, SCO(?), SVR4, SunOS

Generally, when the package is fully functional, it should be sufficient
to run a real multiline FidoNet node on a U*IX machine.
