    Pegasus Mail v4.70 released

    Pegasus Mail v4.70 is yet another interim release. Internally, this version of the program is actually very different from any previous version, and is well on the way to being a version 5 build, but it's been a while since we've had a new version and there's a clear need for the new OpenSSL-based SSL code I've developed for version 5 so I decided it was time to freeze a checkpoint in the development and bring it out.

    OpenSSL support   Pegasus Mail now uses the industry-standard OpenSSL libraries to handle secure Internet connections. A major internal change, this should allow Pegasus Mail to connect to almost any SSL-secured server.

    IMPORTANT NOTE:  if you are using SSL connections to a version of Mercury earlier than the v4.8 release that parallels this release of Pegasus Mail, then you may need to turn on a new option in the Pegasus Mail SSL settings dialog you use to define the connection to the Mercury server.

    Completely new multilingual spelling checker   Pegasus Mail now uses the "Hunspell" spelling checker used by OpenOffice, FireFox and other major systems. The new spelling checker supports multiple simultaneous languages in the same check, and is supplied as standard with US and UK English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Czech dictionaries. Many other dictionaries are readily available, from sources such as the OpenOffice Extensions repository.

    Completely new TCP/IP code   The routines Pegasus Mail uses to connect to the Internet have been totally rewritten, and should be faster and more reliable than ever before. It's kind of sad, given how much effort this took, that most people probably won't even notice it.

    Hyperlink overhaul   The way Pegasus Mail locates and marks hyperlinks in plain-text messages has been completely overhauled. For properly-normalized links (that means, links enclosed in < and >) the program will now correctly find and mark them even if they span multiple lines in the message.

    Updated and improved HTML rendering   Michael and Martin have been busy at work producing more updates to the HTML rendering technology in the program, and you should now find the quality of HTML display even higher than in previous versions.
