Release 2.5.9 made in /mnt/WWW/customers/mhonarc.org/htdocs/release/MHonArc.
* Bug Fixes: See
* Added MHonArc::UTF8 CHARSETCONVERTER module as recommended at
However, module redone to use utf8 pragma in Perl where appropriate
and to remove unnecessary code. Use of module does require that
the Unicode::MapUTF8 module is installed and the utf8 pragma is
supported in the version of Perl you are using.
A example resource file, "utf-8.mrc", has been added to the
resource file example appendix section on how UTF-8 output can
be done in MHonArc.
NOTE: The MHonArc core is still not UTF-8-aware, so some text
processing may not work as expected on UTF-8 data.
Possible problem points:
. Auto-URL hyperlinking in text/plain messages in
. Auto-message-id detection in messages.
. Resource variable text clipping.
There may be others, but in general, if there is a problem,
it should be uncommon and should not affect the overall
functionality of MHonArc. Problems can be avoided by
not using, or disabling, various resources.
. Removed exception case of iso-2022-jp character data since it
does not allow alternative iso-2022-jp character set conversion
functions via CHARSETCONVERTERS.
NOTE: This does eliminate the smart handling of URL detection
for the variable-width character set. Hence, the URL
detection could technically match non-URLs, or munge
a character at URL boundaries, but it is unknown on how
likely this is. If it is a problem, the "nourl" argument
should be specified to this filter.
NOTE: The old-style "smart" URL functionality can be re-enabled by
writing a custom CHARSETCONVERTER for iso-2022-jp that
just calls iso_2022_jp::jp2022_to_html in iso2022jp.pl.
. Minor modification to flowed text/plain formatting that hopefully
makes quoted text look better than before.
* FAQ changes:
+ Added, "Does MHonArc support Unicode?"
* Changed, "Can MHonArc create non-English archives?"
+ Added, "Can MHonArc process Evolution folders?"
