Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] James Mime4j 0.5 released
Date Sat, 18 Oct 2008 11:13:09 GMT
Apache Mime4J is a flexible MIME parsing library written in Java. SAX,
DOM and pull parsing styles are supported.

The 0.5 release addresses a number of important issues discovered since
0.4. In particular, it improves Mime4j ability to deal with malformed
data streams including those intentionally crafted to cause excessive
CPU and memory utilization that can lead to DoS conditions.

This release also fixes a serious bug that can prevent Mime4j from
correctly processing binary content.

Detailed change log can be found here:


 * Mime4j API is still considered unstable and is likely to change in
future releases
 * DOM support has known limitations and some roundtrip issues remain to
be resolved
 * Some low level functions are available only in the pull parser
(recommended for advanced users)
