Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache James Mime4j 0.7 is released
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2011 17:49:07 GMT
The Apache James Project is happy to announce the release of version 0.7 
of the Apache James Mime4j.

Mime4j is a flexible MIME parsing library written in Java. SAX, DOM and 
pull parsing styles are supported.

The 0.7 release brings another round of API enhancements, bug fixes and 
performance optimizations. A major effort has been put in code 
reorganization, separating parsing code from DOM manipulation code. 
Mime4J has been restructured into three separate modules: 'core', 'dom' 
and 'storage'. The 'core' package provides an event-driven SAX style 
parser that relies on a callback mechanism to report parsing events such 
as the start of an entity header the start of a body, etc. The 'dom' 
package contains base/abstract classes and interfaces for MIME-DOM 
manipulation aiming to provide the base for a full featured traversable 
DOM. Per default the Mime4J DOM builder stores content of individual 
body parts in memory. The 'storage' package provides support for more 
complex storage backends such on-disk storage systems, overflow on max 
limit, or encrypted storage through JSSE API.

Mime4j 0.7 improves support for headless messages, malformed separation 
between headers and body and adds support for "obsolete" rfc822 syntax 
(e.g: "Header<somespace>: " style). Parsing performance for quoted 
printable streams have been considerably improved. A "DecodeMonitor" 
object has been introduced in most code to define how to deal with 
malformed input (Lenient vs Strict behaviours). Mime4j 0.7 also provides 
LenientFieldParser as an alternative to DefaultFieldParser when a higher 
degree of tolerance to non-severe MIME field format violations is desired.
