===Template-based email notifications===
+
None yet.
  
In the past, there has been discussion about both customizing and translating the e-mails that faxrcvd and notify send. In this version of HylaFAX, we've done some work to make faxrcvd and notify use "templates" for their e-mail messages.
+
==Changelog==
  
This means that faxrcvd and notify no longer use the "bin/dictionary" and eval "echo $..." everywhere when creating their e-mails, but now directly use a template file.
+
A complete list of changes since HylaFAX 6.0 was branched off for stable maintenance is available in the [http://git.hylafax.org/HylaFAX?a=blob;f=doc/RELEASENOTES-GIT.txt;hb=master HylaFAX GIT release notes]
  
These versions continue the tradition of sourcing etc/FaxDispatch (for faxrcvd) and etc/FaxNotify (for notify) to get "command" variables that influence what they do.  Of course, these shell scripts can continue to do whatever else they were doing (including calling exit to terminate normal faxrcvd/notify handling if desired).
+
=Current stable branches release candidates=
  
These shell scripts can now also set the TEMPLATE variable to control the source of template files that faxrcvd/notify use to generate their e-mails.  Templates are taken from (relative $SPOOL, where notify/faxrcvd are run from):

These releases are maintenance releases, and do not contain any new

features or functionality, but only contain bugfixes.

There currently are release candidates for the following stable branches:
  
So, with TEMPLATES unset, you get the default templates.  If TEMPLATES=fr, you would use the templates in:

6.0.4-rc2 [ [ftp://ftp.hylafax.org/source/testing/hylafax-6.0.4-rc2.tar.gz Source] ] [ [http://git.hylafax.org/HylaFAX?a=blob;f=doc/RELEASENOTES-6.0.txt;hb=6.0 Release Notes] ]
  
We've created a basic set of templates, and a set of translations of them, based on our reading and knowledge of the current faxrcvd and notify scripts. We're sure there are problems with some of the templates, so corrections are welcome.

4.4.6-rc2 [ [ftp://ftp.hylafax.org/source/testing/hylafax-4.4.6-rc2.tar.gz Source] ] [ [http://git.hylafax.org/HylaFAX?a=blob;f=doc/RELEASENOTES-4.4.txt;hb=4.4 Release Notes] ]

Templates are 2 sections, separated by a blank line.  The "header" section is included in the headers of the e-mail.  So the template can actually specify the content-type it is, including any charset, etc.
 
 
 
This means that you *can* make your template something like:

The HylaFAX development team often asks other developers and interested HylaFAX users to test upcoming software releases. As these are beta versions of software they may contain more bugs than usual, and should probably not be used on production servers if your job depends on the performance of that server!
