Man 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.
Garbage Man 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).
