Hello everyone, 

v11.14.0 has been released!

Download and install:

Changelog (and below):

## Focus

This is a release that includes some features as well as some bugfixes.

## Features

### Auto-Remove Old Tracker Data

Data the Tracker plugin collects can take up a lot of database disk space! And processing the raw data into reports can take a lot of time - the more data, the more time you may be waiting to get a report! We've added the feature of removing tracker data that's older than a period of time, starting with being a month or older. This is an optional feature that's disabled by default. It can be enabled for each list separately. Find the option in the Tracker plugin's own preferences.

### "Save Draft" button, when pressed, no longer refreshes screen

When creating a draft, one of the buttons allows you to save the draft. Rather than having to wait for the screen to refresh to continue editing, clicking the **Save Draft** button will now save your draft in the background and you can keep editing your draft message.

Also pay attention to issue #1019 - Previewing a draft also will save the draft before the preview is shown, but there was a big issue when this happened.

### "Check All/Uncheck All" option added to saving settings to multiple lists

Dada Mail has the ability to save it's list settings to > one mailing list at once on most of the screens (screens like Mailing List: List Information don't have this option for hopefully understandable reasons). We've added a way to select/unselect all mailing lists, to more easily select just a few mailing lists to save to.

## Bugfixes

### Send a Message: Previewing an unsaved draft will lead to multiple copies of the draft

This is a particularly big bug - and one of the reasons I want to push out an update. Anytime you press the, "Preview" button when you're creating a Draft, you run the big risk of making two copies of your draft message, which can be very confusing. These copies can also accumulate, making things more mysterious.

### Membership: Recent Activity table of subs/unsub always static at last 100 log lines. Why?

This was a strange issue - perhaps this is more of a feature. But the chart on the top of, **Membership: Recent Activity**, and the table on the bottom don't align up. The chart can show months of data, while the table below shows perhaps the only last 100 lines, which could be years of activity, or just a few days of activity.

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:

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.
