Page updated 16 March 2011
Over the years subscribers to the original npopsupport mail list and now our Forum have suggested a number of ideas to improve the program, and many have already been incorporated in the current release.
This page is reserved for announcements about issues expected to be resolved and enhancements to be added to the next release of nPOPuk. It will also flag issues under consideration for work in the longer term.
As nPOPuk is programmed by volunteers, there are no promises about when, or even if, these ideas will be implemented, but if you don't suggest them, the programmers may miss a great idea.
The next release is already being worked on. Potential new facilities include:
- Support via E-Mail
- An integrated facility to send support questions via e-mail in addition to being able to post to the Forum
- Command Line Options
- The current mailto: syntax does not conform to the RFC even where it could. Future versions of nPOPuk may alter the syntax to better conform to the RFC.
- Mail Import/Export
- It is hoped to provide some external utilities that will allow the exchange of mail data between nPOPuk and other popular e-mail programs.
- The current version supports ROT-13 for disguising the plain text content of nPOPuk's data files. Others go further and request full scale encryption, however, this is proving a more complex task than expected.
