New Garbage Man
8.0.0 Released (6/09/03)
The latest version of Garbage Man, junk email filter for America
Online, has been released to the public. The new version includes
compatibility with the new America Online version 8.0 Plus for Broadband,
as well as backwards compatibility with AOL 8.0, 7.0, 6.0, 5.0 and
4.0 and most versions of Microsoft Windows including XP, 2000 Pro,
Me, 98 and 95.
New features for the
new version include positive keywords scanning for subject and body
filters that keep messages. The new version also fixes issues with
the "Add Address Book" feature that imports your AOL address
book into your Friends list.
6.08 Maintenance Release (5/20/02)
Latest Garbage Man revision corrects a few issues such as problems
with image attachments and increases compatibility with America
Online version 7.0. While 6.08 still does not officially support
the new version, AOL 7 users should experience drastically fewer,
if any, compatibility issues.
Also, the Add Address
Book feature has been temporarily removed for AOL 6 and AOL 7
until a suitable solution is found. AOL 4 and AOL 5 users will
still have access to this feature.
As to why Garbage Man
6.08 was not released as Garbage Man 7.0, we are currently adding
a new look and many new features requested by our users as well
as developing and testing a Windows XP version which we hope to
release in a matter of weeks.
6.0 Beta Release (6/12/01)
Garbage Man 6.0 beta lacks the Address Book Import feature for
AOL 6.0. With the exception of that feature, Garbage Man 6.0 beta
is almost fully functional. Garbage Man 6.0 beta is being made
available to the public for download while we continue to work
on a solution and a few features to Garbage Man 6.0.
Along with the long
anticipated release of Garbage Man 6.0 comes a new version numbering
system. With all future releases, the version number will correspond
with the compatible version of America Online software. (ie. Garbage
Man 6.0 is compatible with AOL 6.0, Garbage Man 7.0 will be compatible
with AOL 7.0).
AOL 6 Issues
The recent release of America Online 6.0 introduces a new and
improved e-mail system! Unfortunately, a new mail system means
that Garbage Man 1.5 will not compatible with America Online 6.0.
Nothing to fear, a new compatible version of Garbage Man is being
currently under development and will be released. However testing
usually takes a few months, so in the mean time, a temporary fix
will be released ASAP.
1.5 Update (1/09/00)
Garbage Man 1.5 has been released! Included in this new revision
are features such as an animation browser, filter testing and more
