Bugs in 1.3 and 1.2

BUGS IN 1.3 and 1.2
(Hey, it's 1997! Upgrade already!)
Subject: (6.29) 7-bit encoded batches are not correctly processed. Why is this?

Chris Schmidt <cs@germany.eu.net> replies:

The decode program that comes with INN up to version 1.3 is broken.
Because of that the last article in a 7bit encoded batch will not
correctly be decoded (the last characters are screwed up). This is
fixed in INN 1.4.


Subject: (6.30) NOV (overchan) doesn't work well.

Correct. The NOV support in 1.3 didn't have all the bugs worked out.
Don't use NOV under INN 1.3. Better yet, upgrade to at least 1.4sec
and get all the benefits!


Subject: (6.31) Why doesn't nntpget work?

The nntpget in INN 1.2 doesn't work. Period. Upgrade to the latest
version of INN.
