Mime4j 0.4 released

August 16, 2008

We are proud to announce the availability of APACHE Mime4j-0.4. This release brings a number of significant improvements in terms of supported capabilities, flexibility and performance:

  • Revised and improved public API with support for pull parsing
  • Support for parsing of ‘headless’ messages transmitted using non SMTP transports such as HTTP
  • Reduced external dependencies. Mime4j is no longer directly dependent on log4j and commons-io
  • Improved parsing performance (up to 10x for large messages)
  • More comprehensive header parsing including support for RFC1864, RFC2045, RFC2183, RFC2557 and RFC3066
  • Revised packaging and exception hierarchy. MimeException now extends IOException
