March 6, 2014 - Enkive 1.4 final released

We are pleased to announce that Enkive version 1.4 final is now available for download at http://enkive.org/community/download and at http://sourceforge.net/projects/enkive

The only changes since version 1.4 release candidate 2 are minor bug fixes.

The changes since version 1.3.1 are:

New DocumentStore for attachments
Introduced in version 1.4 RC2... For datasets with lots of attachments or large attachments, the limitations of MongoDB's GridFS were causing unacceptable performance. Since the trend is more mail with larger attachments, this needed to be addressed. A new document store was created that stores documents in the filesystem, indexed by MongoDB rather than in MongoDB directly. This resulted in a 5X speedup in document processing (and hence import).

IMAP search
The experimental IMAP support has been removed, and replaced with the ability to export searches via IMAP. Any search can be tagged as being an IMAP search, and will then show up as a folder when the user connects via IMAP. IMAP searches periodically update in the background, so they are never out-of-date.

Search Update
Searches can be updated clicking on the Update button on the search results page. This will update the search for new mail that has been archived since it was last run.

Update Version Check
Enkive will periodically (by default every 2 weeks) check to see if there is a newer version. This can be configured or disabled.

Large search improvements
MongoDB has an inherent limit on the size of un-indexed search results. When sorting a large search by a non-default key (e.g. date), this limit triggered, causing a Java backtrace to be displayed. The error is now a nice, user-understandable message. The results can now be paged up until the MongoDB limit is reached (rather than an immediate failure on sorting).

Improved init scripts
* Upstart for Ubuntu (and Red Hat Enterprise 6)
* Proper sysv-init for Debian

Turnkey version
There is a Turnkey bootable ISO with Enkive 1.4 pre-installed. It can be used for evaluation or as a basis for a full installation. Based on Debian 6 Squeeze.

Email Processing Performance
Email processing has been optimized to achieve a 400% improvement in processing speed. This means that a higher volume of email can be archived on the same hardware, and that import performance is greatly improved.

Sort order bug fix
There was a bug in sort order for sorting by date, that resulted in dates near each other being in the wrong order. This is fixed, and dates sort correctly.

UI theming bug fix for paged results
Paged search results beyond the first page were not properly themed.

We are pleased to announce that Enkive version 1.4 Release Candidate 2 is now available for download at http://enkive.org/community/download and at http://sourceforge.net/projects/Enkive

In this release we have made the following changes/improvements that users have requested:

Sort order bug fix
There was a bug in sort order for sorting by date, that resulted in dates near each other being in the wrong order. This is fixed, and dates sort correctly.

UI theming bug fix for paged results

Please note, this is a release candidate, and not a supported release. Deploy it only in test configurations.

The Release Candidate will be the final product, unless significant bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization, all product features have been designed, coded and regression tested through one or more beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bugs. This means that no entirely-new source code will be added to this release, but there could still be source code changes to fix defects, changes to documentation and data files, and peripheral code for test cases or utilities.

September 18, 2013 - Changes in Enkive-CE 1.3.1

Here's what's changed in 1.3.1 since 1.3.0:

  • Fixed Bug 21 - Exchange Journalling results in two archives per email
  • Add the ability to poll for mail from a mail server
    • In addition to the Enkive Postfix filter, Enkive can now poll for
      mail from a mailbox (either IMAP or POP3) on a mail server. This can
      integrate with server-based journalling accounts.
  • Handle RFC 5987 encoded UTF-8 attachment filenames
    • Before, UTF-8 encoded filenames for attachments were ignored by the
      UI, causing those attachments to download as "attachment-#". Now,
      they are properly parsed, resulting in the correct attachment names
      showing in the UI.
  • Warnings fixes
  • Update to the newest Apache James and MongoDB versions
July 8, 2013 - Enkive 1.3 CE Released Today

Hope everyone in the States had a 4th of July holiday. I am happy to announce that Enkive 1.3 is now declared stable and can is available now for download.

The documentation and migration instructions are here: http://wiki.enkive.org/index.php/Release_1.3_CE

Do let us know how it is working for you.

Also reminder that support and other services are available. For details check out https://www.enkive.org/enterprise

Warmly,

P.S. Enkive Release 1.3.1 Release Candidate 1 will be release July 15th. This release includes setting up Enkive to retrieve messages from the journal account in Google Apps.

June 20, 2013 - Enkive 1.3 RC3 Released -- anticipated to be final candidate

Hi All,

Enkive version 1.3 Release Candidate 3 is now available for download at http://enkive.org/community/download and at http://sourceforge.net/projects/enkive. Do take a test drive, and give us feedback! Unless you report any new issues, we expect to declare this the stable release within a week or two. The one issue we have uncovered and repaired:

  • Changes to fix hangs on shutdown. A few threadpools were not being cleaned up properly, causing the JVM to never exit. Killing the JVM was fine (all data had been cleaned up), but otherwise it would hang around.

Installation instructions are here: http://wiki.enkive.org/index.php/1.3_Installation_Instructions

Instructions for migration from 1.2 to 1.3 are here: http://wiki.enkive.org/index.php/Upgrade_Instructions

Please note, this is a release candidate, and not a supported release. Deploy it only in test configurations. The RC will be the final product, unless significant bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization, all product features have been designed, coded and regression tested through one or more beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bug. This means that no entirely-new source code will be added to this release, but there could still be source code changes to fix defects, changes to documentation and data files, and peripheral code for test cases or utilities.

June 12, 2013 - Enkive 1.3 RC2 Released Today

Enkive version 1.3 Release Candidate 2 is now available for you to download from enkive.org/download and at sourceforge. Do take a test drive, and give us feedback! Unless you report any new issues, we expect to declare this the stable release within a week or two.

The two issues we have uncovered and repaired:

  • Internal locking fixes: The locking code was inconsistent in how it handled failure to get the lock, which could have caused invalid access to the database. This was never observed, but the code was fixed to be consistent.
  • Attachment file names with spaces: When downloading attachments that had file names with spaces, the resulting suggested name in your browser would only run up to the first space, causing odd file names and keeping the file from opening with the correct software application. Now, those names are quoted properly, allowing attachments to download with the correct original name.

Please note, this is a release candidate and not a supported release. Deploy it only in test configurations. The RC will be the final product, unless significant bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization, all product features have been designed, coded and regression tested through one or more beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bug. This means that no entirely-new source code will be added to this release, but there could still be source code changes to fix defects, changes to documentation and data files, and peripheral code for test cases or utilities. We truly appreciate your feedback. Please submit bug reports here. Please send questions either to the mailing list or to info@enkive.org Thanks for your patience.

Release notes for this version:

  • Attachments downloaded through the web interface are in their original binary form (rather than in their encoded form). File names of attachments are maintained in many cases.
  • Significant improvement on authentication against LDAP and Active Directory. Other improvements on file-based authentication.
  • Improvements in IMAP access to user's archived email.
  • The ability to normalize email addresses according to various rules has been added to create additional flexibility.
  • Improved mechanism for database migrations to make future upgrades easier.

  • Scripts/tools that had previously broken when supplied with relative paths can now use relative paths.
  • Fixed several bugs in Enkive query setup and execution which previously caused incorrect results to be returned
  • Fixed a bug in the statistics database. Unfortunately previous statistics history will be lost.
  • If certain expected data directories do not exist, Enkive will attempt to create them.
  • Component libraries have been upgraded.
  • Efficiency in many parts of the code has been improved. Various bugs have been eliminated.

We truly appreciate your feedback.
