Focus

This version of Dada Mail has been released with some new features and a few small bug fixes.

Features

Only one mailing list? The default screen is now that list screen

Dada Mail supports an arbitrary number of lists, but many people just run one mailing list. If this is the case, Dada Mail will show what is usually shows in the list's own screen on the default screen. This saves user's a click to view relevant information of that one list.

Multiple mailing lists? Subscription buttons for each mailing list

If you're running Dada Mail with multiple mailing lists, a button to allow a user to subscribe to each mailing list will be available. This saves the user a screen refresh to subscribe to the actual mailing list.

Schedule Mass Mailings now have an option to send right away

There's a few instances where you have a scheduled mass mailing, and you would like to just send that mass mailing right away. Now you can! Look for the button on the top bar labeled, Send Mass Mailing Now in your schedule mailing.

Periodic Login/Session Status Check

Dada Mail now will check your login/session status periodically (every 5 minutes) to make sure it's valid. If it's not, you'll be automatically logged out.

New option to show/hide a subscription form in the default, list, and archive screens

If you don't want to show a subscription form in your default/list/archives screens, now you don't have to. This option is per-list, find it in Mailing List: Options. Look for the option labeled, Show subscription form. Any subscription forms that are available to users will still work.

Custom email themes are now automatically kept during upgrading

Maintaining a custom email theme can be a chore, but now it's a little easier. If you have a custom email theme, make sure it's name is also something unique to your organization. Now when you upgrade, your custom theme will be copied over to the new installation automatically. You'll no longer have to do this task manually.

Disable List Password Reset

Dada Mail has support to reset the List Password via a confirmation email after an incorrect login. You can now disable this functionality in the Dada Mail Installer.

plugin: password_protect_directories - option to always use the default password

Changes

plugin: password_protect_directories works (again)

This plugin seemed broken beyond all comprehension. It should work again!

Bugfixes

All subscribers of this list may post to the list itself.

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.
