Preview means that the software is provided for test and evaluation purposes only, and that users agree to provide information about the software, its functionality and performance. Preview also means that there is no documentation. Version 1.1.0 may change the way in which features work without explicit notification. Preview is only available for BlackBerry 8000 and 9000 series devices able to support BlackBerry API version 4.2 and later.

Version 0-1-50 released

July 8, 2008

After a little frustration, version 0-1-50 is now available for general download. This version fixes a couple of critical bugs, and is recommended for anyone running 0-1-49. This version fixes problems with working with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and fixes a problem with incorrect user-id being sent in the SMTP session.

There are some little improvements, including better layout for single line display, and no longer telling you there is more to download when the entire message was pre-loaded. It also fixes some bugs the the sorting of inboxes.

Not much progress on IDLE I am afraid, but this has been due to pressure in other directions, and irritating problems resulting from Apple making changes to .mac at the weekend.

Here is the ‘official’ list of fixes etc in 50

  • performance improvements to message decoder
  • fixed problem working with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007
  • fixed problem with multi-select delete not working for an even number of selected messages
  • fixed problem with IDLE not appearing to be informed of new messages – caused by not selecting mailbox before initiating IDLE
  • fixed bugs in sorting messages in Message List
  • fixed incorrect title on network settings panel
  • no longer any need to restart after changing user name and password details
  • improved session reliability for send and receive
  • fixed bug in passing user details to SMTP module
  • changed to show messages as unloaded, preloaded and fully loaded
  • fixed problem where small messages are shown as part loaded
  • fixed protocol break caused by loosing a server response line

Also, it would appear that battery consumption is not as bad as it was!
