$Id$ * ANNOUNCE * The HylaFAX development team is pleased to announce our 4.1.1 patch-level release! The release represents countless hours of work and testing by developers and contributors, and our thanks goes to all who participate and provide feedback. * * * This document is intended to describe the significant differences between hylafax-4.1.1 and hylafax-4.1, point out any known incompatibilites and issues, and provide the reader with directions to further resources regarding HylaFAX. * NEW FEATURES * * improved prototype config support for AT&T, Prometheus, MultiTech, Hayes, Conexant, Boca, US Robotics, and Practical Peripherals modems * 7-bit text support for typerules * bulk faxes now drop in requeue priority rather than increase * pass CIDNumber and CIDName through to faxgetty for CID/DNIS routing * FILETYPE support in FaxDispatch (requires metamail when using TIFF/PDF) * integrated Linux DSO support * coverpage "from" options and faxcover behavior and documentation harmony * added Class1SendMsgDelay and ModemSoftResetCmdDelay defaults and options * added Class1EOPWaitCmd, Class1PPMWaitCmd, and Class1TCFWaitCmd in lieu of Class1Send*Delay options which causes Class 1 modems to use +FTS instead of software pauses in these instances. * various other bugfixes, minor enhancements, and additions ** please refer to CHANGES for a detailed list of code changes * KNOWN ISSUES * * Specific support for fax classes 1.0 and 2.1 are not yet implemented. * Server-based fax archival support is still unimplemented (although documented). * When running in Class 2/2.0, NSF can be parsed incorrectly. * Copy quality checking by cqtest is imperfect. * sendfax use of ~/.hylarc differs from its use of hyla.conf * faxrm and faxalter contain format string vulnerabilities. ** Please refer to HylaFAX Bugzilla for a detailed list of issues. * INCOMPATIBILITIES * * The popular faxrcvd-mail scripts have been deprecated by FILETYPE use in FaxDispatch, and unchanged, will not work with faxgetty in 4.1.1. See 'man faxrcvd' for details. * Failed faxes now have status "F" instead of "D". Most client programs which display/report job status will need some alteration to accomodate this. * HylaFAX 4.1.1 may not compile with gcc-3.0, and limited support is available for Mac OS-X. * HYLAFAX BINARY PACKAGES * Binary packages for some operating systems and platforms are available. Please see ftp://ftp.hylafax.org/binary/ and http://www.hylafax.org/howto/install.html#ss2.3.3 If you are able and willing to produce a binary package of HylaFAX for general distribution, then you are invited to join firstname.lastname@example.org and solicit your binary package. * SUPPORT * HylaFAX has numerous support resources available. The user is encouraged to utilize the manpage documentation before turning to other support arenas. However, if other support is desired, or if you would like to actively take part in the HylaFAX community, you are invited to: * join and participate in a HylaFAX mailing list See: http://www.hylafax.org/mailing-lists.html When corresponding about this software, please always specify: - what version of HylaFAX you have, - what system you're running on (if it is Linux please name the distribution) - if the problem is modem-related, identify it and the firmware rev For example: "HylaFAX v4.0pl2 under RedHat Linux 4.2 with gcc 2.7.2; ZyXEL 1496E with 6.11a firmware." * read the on-line documentation and resources See: http://www.hylafax.org and http://www.hylafax.org/howto * review HylaFAX CVS See: http://www.hylafax.org/cvs.html * report confirmed bugs, feature requests, and submit patches See: http://bugs.hylafax.org/bugzilla Thanks, The HylaFAX development team ------------------------------------------------------------------- And now, a note from HylaFAX's original author ;-) Silicon Graphics has seen fit to allow me to give this work away. It is free. There is no support or guarantee of any sort as to its operations, correctness, or whatever. If you do anything useful with all or parts of it you need to honor the copyright notices. I would also be interested in knowing about it and, hopefully, be acknowledged. Finally, note that this software is called ``HylaFAX'', not ``Hylafax'', ``hylafax'', and certainly not ``FlexFAX'' (the old name which someone else has a copyright on). If you want to refer to this software use ``HylaFAX (tm)'' and be sure to honor the Silicon Graphics trademark.
