A daily build of the jpskmail-0.3.5 client is in the alpha directory on hermes:

new features are:

* add attachments to emails
   The 'new' dialog has got an 'add attachment' button which opens a 
   file chooser dialog. Add only small attachments fitting the 250 Hz bandwidth 
   The new server v. 0.8.2 supports sending these mails to internet addresses, 
    older servers are not capable of doing this.
   You can see the server version when you connect;
   PI4TUE 0.8.2-IM12>

* get grib file. This is a new menu item on the info menu
   It gets the wind/pressure file for next 3 days for a square +5 -5 degrees of 
   your present position. As saildocs is very fast you can retrieve the 
   grib file from your mailbox immediately. Do a qtc and read the 
   file. Under linux the grib file will be in /opt/zyGrib/grib for immediate 
   As the grib file is only 2.6 kByte, the whole thing takes only 2 minutes...
   It is also possible to request another square, just write e.g. 40N, 20N, 
140W, 120W into 
   the input field before you hit the grib file menu entry.. wrong format 
should give an 
   error message. The request is sent via email to query@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

The GUI is still work in progress, but you can already test the functionality 
of the 
new features. Gmail smtp has not been tested, but it works fine with the new 
server on  PI4TUE...
