Many thanks to all those which have tried the devo snapshots and
helped in squeezing bugs.

The 8.0.x versions are reserved for the remaining bugs while new
features will be in 8.1.0, i.e. better HTML support is on my
radar for now.

The new homepage http://www.nongnu.org/viewmail/ should be
refreshed by Savannah in the next few hours. Kind of a road map
can be found in the TODO file which can be browsed at launchpad
http://codebrowse.launchpad.net/%7Ehack-robf/viewmail/trunk/files

Have fun,
Robert.

Congratulations!

I'm going to recommend using VM 8.x with the emacs-w3m Info
manual and to remove vm-w3m.el in the emacs-w3m CVS repository.
Here is a patch to vm-8.1.0-devo-455 to make it synch with the
latest (the last) vm-w3m.el in emacs-w3m:

Robert,

My thanks also for all the work you have done on vm!
I went to your site and tried it out. Here are some notes:

I downloaded the 8.0 version from your site,
http://www.nongnu.org/viewmail/, into a temporary working area:

We are running RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 with xemacs packages.

I read your INSTALL/README and I configured it with:

./configure --with-xemacs --prefix=/usr/share

I did the 'make' and that seemed fine except for bdb. I noticed
your INSTALL did not include a 'make install' -- I went ahead
and did it anyway (okay?), it installed files to:

/usr/share/xemacs/site-packages/lisp/vm

I did not change any of my xemacs or vm startup file. I restarted
vm and it seemed to work fine. The only 'visible' difference I
noticed were some different fonts/colors in the Summary.

I thought it would be easy to get some version confirmation just
to make sure I am actually running your stuff... Is there a command
I can give?

Robert,

Oops! After sending the last message I found out where
the version was, right on the status bar at the bottom of
the window -- pretty sneaky!

Well I did not test that too much and I never will install into
the system directories my self, just into my home dir.

In a composition buffer you should see:

X-Mailer: VM 8.0.0-453 under XEmacs 21.4.21 (i686-pc-linux)

or something similar.

You could also M-x find-function vm-session-initialization RET
and find (require 'vm-rfaddons) 19 lines below.

Well that is the simple and boring way to figure it out ;-)

Robert.
