Hi All,

I'm pleased to finally release 0.5 which you can download from

- Updated indexes for much greater performance (again!).
- Added preliminary support for per-user filters (see USER_FILTERS file).
- Added the ability to view quarantined items.
- All tables now enable a pager when returning more than 50 rows and allow
  ordering by any of the displayed columns.
- New tool to run SpamAssassin --lint and time the output for debugging SA.
- New F-Secure status page (like Sophos).
- Required PEAR modules now included.
- Added reporting of Blacklisted mails.
- Integrated the reporting of SpamAssassin Blacklisted/Whitelisted e-mails.
- Quoted printable strings are now automatically decoded before display.
- Configuration options moved from functions.php into conf.php
- Automatically works out VIRUS_REGEX by using the first value in
  MailScanner.conf - e.g. 'Virus Scanners = sophossavi clamavmodule' would
  activate the regexp for SophosSAVI.
- New 'Virus Report' allows comparison of multiple scanners (if you run
  more than one) and allows you to see 1st detection date/time of each
  virus by each scanner.
- Integration with Fortress Systems Secure Mail Gateway.

- Multiple clean-ups of mailq.php to make it more robust.
- Greatly improved debugging of SQL statments.
- Quarantine now correctly looks in the non-spam quarantine directories.
- SA Rules Description Update now reads custom rules as well.
- sendmail_relay.php now works across log rotations.
- Increased memory_limit to 128M for quarantine functions.

Kind regards,
