It’s been a while since the last post… So, Clo is still more pregnant than ever, and the due date is in less than two weeks now. I could become a father in the next hours!
Waiting for this to happen, and given that everything’s ready towards the baby’s arrival, I tried to help make Claws Mail 3.6.0 a really good release.
After two release candidates, most of the bugs seem ironed out; I’ve prepared the most I could to be able to quickly build packages after the release, as I usually do Mandriva, Maemo and Ubuntu packages, it can take quite a bit of time and that’s if nothing fails. I often experience Murphy’s law when trying to build packages.
As if these three distribution packages weren’t enough, I started looking at the Windows issues that the Gpg4win team faced. I was tired of having a crappy broken build of 3.0.0-rc2 with no SSL and no IMAP. So the good news is that currently, the SVN version of Ggp4win builds Claws Mail 3.5.0cvs138, with the following notable changes:
- No more leaking 50 megs when changing folders
- Various buglet fixes (crashers, annoyances)
- Better integration to the windows theme
- Notification plugin
- RSSyl plugin
- VCalendar plugin
- GtkHTML2 Viewer plugin
It’s most probably not bug free, but at least it starts to have a large enough subset of Claws’ feature not to be ashamed of it.
Users of the old windows versions are encouraged to start from scratch (by removing Claws-Mail and mailboxes from %APPDATA%).
