Welcome to the NewsPro homepage

What is NewsPro?
NewsPro is a webinterface for sending a newsletter or announcement to a list of email-recipients.
In addition with the NewsPro interface users can subscribe or unsubscribe to the newsletter themselves.

Which advantages does NewsPro provide?
- NewsPro does not require a database management system (DBMS) like MySQL and others.
- NewsPro is easy to use with the comfortable webinterface.
- NewsPro email databases may be exportet easily as they are only a ASCII file.
- NewsPro email recipients may subscribe or unsubscribe on their own. A manual maintenance is not necessary.

System requirements, on which systems does NewsPro run?
NewsPro is installed on a webserver and needs Perl and Sendmail.
It is tested on Linux and Solaris operating system with the Apache webserver. In general NewsPro is runable on every webserver that provides Perl and Sendmail.

31.07.2002: Bugfix release 1.0.3
Quick'n'short: 2 bugs have been discovered which are now fixed by the bugfix release 1.0.3.
First thing fixed is a password problem with different implementations of the crypt() routine. This prevented one in some situations to login to newspro the first time.
The second fix corrects handling of line ends. In some cases it was possible that double empty lines were produced by the script.

09.01.2002: Looking forward to v1.0
The last two months development of newspro freezed and i waited for any upcoming new bug reports to fix. Many many people downloaded NewsPro 0.6 and use it, but no bugs were found.
This is good news for me, so i will make the step to version 1.0 in near future. I will implement some minor new things, but most of the current version will be the same and gets into 1.0 stable. So i will now have a look forward to upcoming features that will find their way into the version 1.x to 2.0 and so on. It would be nice if NewsPro would speak more languages, but their are no translators available. If you feel able to do a translation job, feel free to contact me:
08.11.2001: Russian language file 0.6
Today i added the russian language file for version 0.6
06.11.2001: release of version 0.6 !
Today i released the new version NewsPro 0.6.
There are many things made better and many bugfixes were included in this version!
Have a look at this list:

- full implementation and auto-recognition of foreign charsets (kyrillic etc.)
- implemented perl's internal security functions like -T and -w
- made newspro runable in a 755 environment
- subscribed email adresses are now case insensitive
- many many bugfixes :)
