A new version of The Bat! Voyager, the portable e-mail client, has been released. The latest version of Voyager includes all the new features and improvements of the The Bat! The entire list of improvements since the previous version:

New features

  • Summary message list view
  • Export of addressbook to Address list, Tab-delimited, Comma-separated and INI-file with added UTF-8 BOM, it helps for some 3-rd Party programms to vizualize non-latin characters
  • TLS 1.1
  • SSL 3.0
  • Import of Exchange contacts from MS Outlook
  • Voyager 6.0 supports Internationalized Domain Names (IDN), which means that along with Latin characters also domains with characters from other alphabets such as Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Russian are recognized correctly. Thus domain names containing alphabet-based characters with diacritics, such as German Umlaute and French accentuated vowels will be processed correctly from now on.
  • Voyager 6.0 is now a fully-Unicode application, which gives advantage to the users that work with multiple languages simultaneously. While previous versions worked mostly well with multiple languages in file names, subject lines, etc., there were places that a language different that Windows-default language “for non-Unicode programs” might not work well in Voyager For example, it allows to use the German language under a Russian OS without erroneous presentation of such words as “unverschlьsselt“ (instead of “unverschlüsselt“). Voyager 6.0 fully supports Unicode Standard that uses a unified digital code for the most of the world's writing systems.
  • Voyager 6.0 is available in two versions - 32-bit and 64-bit. The new Voyager 64-bit version will be released after November 21, 2013. It runs better under Windows 64-bit and can access Microsoft Exchange Server if MS Outlook 64-bit is installed. This enables the exchange of e-mails inside one group or enterprise.
