14th March 2006 AsterFax version 1.0 beta 8 released

After much ado and just plain hard work beta 8 is finally released.
This released was primarily aimed at improving error handling. Previous released of AsterFax where unable to retrieve transmission errors and as such had to assumed that all transmissions failed. With a patch to txfax we can now get acurate error messages and report them when a transmission fails.
A lot of clean up work has also been undertaken as well as support for Rich Text Files and landscape mode.
There is still somework to be done on making the errors human readable.

Beta 8 is another major milestone in AsterFax’s development. All significant features slated for the version 1.0 release have now been implemented. The remaining working centres around improving the installation process, adding additional converters and adding a header to the fax
