Description Pawel Pekala 2009-07-07 17:00:13 UTC

This plugin is not longer developed/supported by claws-mail team due to
licensing problems. Poppler lib that this plugin uses contains code from
xpdf package which is licensed under GPLv2 only (no "or later" part) and 
claws-mail uses GPLv3. 

 According to FSF GPLv2 only and GPLv3 are incompatible. Also this plugin 
doesn't work with new claws-mail anyway.
