popper-1.82beta.tar.Z 27 March 91
This version fixes problems on Encore MultiMax and some Sun releases
which wouldn't allow a user to ftruncate() a file from an open
file descripter unless the user owns the file. Now the user
owns the /usr/spool/mail/.userid.pop file. Thanks to Ben Levy
of FTP Software and Henry Holtzman of Apple.
popper-1.81beta.tar.Z 20 March 91
This version of popper is supposed to fix three problems reported
with various versions of popper (all called 1.7 or 1.7something).
1) Dropped network connections meant lost mail files. Some 1.7
versions also risked corrupting mail files.
2) Some versions of 1.7 created temporary drop files with world
read and write permissions.
3) Some versions of 1.7 were not careful about opening the temporary
popper-1.7.tar.Z 09 September 90 (updated 20 March 91)
This version will exhibit the first problem listed above if it is
compiled with -DDEBUG and run without the "-d" (debug) flag.
If it is compiled without -DDEBUG it will exhibit only the second
and third bug listed above.
