False positives for Gmail Growl

The recent version V1.2 of Gmail Growl causes several anti-virus programs to show virus warnings. These are false positives! I use AutoIt to make Gmail Growl and it seems that the software compression packer of AutoIt is causing the false positive.

I replaced the download with a new version created without the software compression packer.

Gmail Growl V1.2

V1.2 contains the following improvements:

  • New Feature: Gmail Growl can be used as as standard email program.
    This does also work with Explorer SendTo and IE SendTo by using the previous standard email program (e.g. Outlook) for this.

  • New Feature: In the presence of another mail program like Outlook, the user can decide for each click on a mailto link to either use Gmail or the other mail program. This might be useful at work ...
  • New Feature: The tray icon changes to blue when there are unread mails. @Josh: Thanks for the hint.
  • New Feature: Only use https with Gmail.
    @Dane: Thanks for the hint.
  • New Feature: Improved icons with the work of Chris Ivarson.

Gmail Growl V1.1: Now Available

V1.1 contains the following improvements:
  • New Feature: Gmail Growl can register as mailto handler for web pages.
    By default this feature is turned off. You can safely test this, since Gmail Growl will restore the previous mailto handler when the feature is deactivated again.
  • Bug Fix: Fixed a bug in the start-up behaviour which prevented Gmail Growl from starting in certain environments

Gmail Growl will detect this new version on start-up and notify you. Using Growl, of course!


If you don't like this, wou can use the Growl settings to not show this notifications.
