Java News from Wednesday, May 3, 2006

Sun has released JavaMail 1.4. JavaMail is a basic library for performing POP, SMTP, and IMAP. I wrote about this in the final chapter of Java Network Programming. 1.4 can now create and parse delivery status notifications. Java 1.4 or later is required. John Wilson reminded me that this has now been open sourced under the GPL-incompatible CDDL license 1.0.
