From: "Justin J justin@PROTECTED [Dada Mail Developers]" <dadadev@PROTECTED>
Subject: v10.3.0 Beta 1 Released
Date: December 28th 2016

Hello everyone,

I've released a beta version of Dada Mail, v10.3.0. This version features the ability to send a message out using a RSS or Atom feed. Changelog is below - I invite everyone to try it out, and see if the feature is useful to you, before I put out the stable release. This feature should allow a simple way to automatically send mass mailings, when there's new content available on a website, saving time!

Download and install (Pro Dada version also available)

Features

Mass Mailing Message from RSS Feed

Dada Mail can transform a RSS Feed into an email message to tbe sent as a mass mailing. Find this option in the list control panel under,

Mass Mailing - Send a Webpage

In the HTML Version tab, click the option,

Grab content from a RSS/Atom feed

and enter the URL of the feed in the textbox below this radio button. Additional options are available, including adding HTML content before and after the entries from the feed, setting how many entries are included in the message, and if the full entry is included or just a summary should be used.

Sending content from a feed becomes very powerful, when set up to send on a recurring schedule. If the option,

Only send the next scheduled mass mailing, if the primary content differs from the previous scheduled mass mailing

is checked, only newer entries that have not already been sent will be included in future mass mailings.

Some on topic... topics include:

  • Positive Crits on the program (I like, "x", but, "y" needs some work - here's an idea on how to make this better...)
  • Bug/Error reports
  • Bug fixes
  • Request For Comments on any changes to the program
  • Help customizing Dada Mail for your own internal needs
  • Patches
  • Language Translations
  • Support Documentation/Doc editing, FAQ's, etc.
  • Discussion of any changes that you would like to be committed to the next version of Dada Mail -

At the moment, there aren't many people with CVS access for Dada Mail - if you would like CVS access, please first talk about the changes you propose and how it will affect the program. If the idea is sound and agreed upon, the change will be comitted. A good track record of this will allow you to have CVS access. Some reasons that patches will not be accepted is if the patch breaks compatibility with a previous version of the program, the patch is too centric to your own problem or the patch simply isn't very good.

Please, please please familiarize yourself with the documentation at:

http://dadamailproject.com/support/documentation/

Since no one wants to answer the same question twice.

Another sneaky reason for this mailing list is to test out the discussion list capabilities of Dada Mail, since Dada Mail is used for the mailing list itself.

NOTE - because of this, there may be times that this list will be somewhat broken. Although we're not planning on breaking the program by using it, we're giving you the heads up that this may well happen anyways.
