Several news about this version for Pegasus Mail 4.8, so here's the most important stuff:
Further enhancements of the copy/paste support which allow insertion of documents including pictures as far as supported by the source and converter systems which means: There are several "black boxes" involved which IER can't control since Pegasus Mail's TER editor is Rich Text based which only office applications and IE itself provide native RTF contents for on the clipboard. In all other cases TER's HTS module (with some of my tweaks) attempts to convert the HTML which works more or less successful and sometimes completely fails. So be prepared for inconsistent outcomes - but you may also be surprised about the final result even when the preview looks pretty ugly. Samples can be provided on request!
Then there've been two feature requests:
One of them was for ways to add browser's to IER's dropdown menu without having do edit the system's Registry for testing purposes. I've done two things to achieve this, the first, simple one was to use Pegasus Mail's Tools => Options => Hyperlinks => Web browser commandline option: If you enter an additional browser there which isn't registered but can be located on a connected drive it will be listed in the menu as well as the other browsers, you just don't have any options with regard to shortcuts and its display name. If not connected it'll simply be ignored, of course (don't know about side effects in BearHtml and plain text mode, though).Safe with regard to the latter is the second option using an INI file named BrowserList.ini located in the user's new mail directory: A copy containing instructions will by installed therein when launching Pegasus Mail for the first time after the update. It will just sit there and do nothing until someone actually adds command lines to it.
The second request was for a permanent exception list to permit downloads from certain domains which continuously redirect remote image URLs. The respective INI file named BlockList.ini is installed the same way as the aforementioned one, and adding domains is simply done by ticking the respective check box in the warning dialog popping up on redirection attempts by default if redirections aren't disabled at all in IER's options dialog. The INI file option will override this global setting for the respective domain, and for now there's no way other than editing the file to reverse it. Suggestions are welcome!
Like always there've been several fixes of issues reported by users and found by me while working on these new features and trying to enhance my code for better maintenance, you may or may not notice. Two issues I remember are a background color issue resulting in unreadable replies and image download errors caused by user agent rejections - unfortunately increasingly being seen and not always avoidable even though I'm already "borrowing" the Edge user agent on systems where it's actually installed.
