Chances are that you know or heard something about ASForm, and that's what brought you here. If you want to know more about it, a good place to start is with the Introduction and Features page.
The current version of ASForm is 0.64, which is the fourth public beta release. The current version will always be distributed from this site.
Version 0.64 corrects a bug that was evident in some, but not all, virtual host installations when a referrer filter of --host was used. If you have version 0.63 and it's not giving you any trouble, there is probably no need to upgrade at this time.
ASForm version 0.64 corrects a bug in version 0.63, but does not require that your configuration files, etc. be changed in any way. asfmdbug.pl is not changed, so all you need do to upgrade is to copy asform.cgi from this distribution over the top of the 0.62/0.63 distribution. You will of course have to set the permissions of the file to allow you to write it before trying to copy, and then remove all write permission prior to running ASForm.
If you are using version 0.62, you should upgrade now. There is a bug in 0.62 that prevents the undeliverable mail cache from working properly. You should upgrade now, and if there are any files named asftmpnnn.asf (where "nnn" is a number) in the directory in which ASForm is installed, you should manually copy them to your local machine and read them -- they are plain text files, and are your missing messages. Newer versions will not process those files unless it is configured to use the ASForm installation directory as the undeliverable mail cache.
At this time, there are no known bugs in release 0.64. However, it would be wise to check back here from time to time to determine if there have been any uncovered since you downloaded your copy. This does not apply to just ASForm, but to any CGI applications you download from the web. It's part of the duty of care that comes with deploying CGI apps, and is something that all webmasters should take seriously. The version number of ASForm will increment whenever the executables are changed. A note will appear here if the documentation changes when the executables have not.
Here's where you can get ASForm:
asform.tgz (55094 bytes)
asform.zip (64332 bytes)
If you intend to deploy ASForm, please be sure to read all of the documentation that comes with it! It will save you a lot of time and frustration.
I hope you find ASForm useful and easy to deploy. Enjoy!
