si.Mail released

As there will be a long time before next major release and there was a couple of annoying bugs fixed, I’m releasing a bug fix release of stable 1.0 series. For those not playing around with Development builds, update is recommended.

-IMPR: Attachment view skips creating of mailboxes with ? or * in extension part. Please rebuild attachment view for changes to take effect
-IMPR: Improved speed of parsing messages sent via MAPI.
-FIX: Fixed division by zero in images attachment preview plug-in
-FIX: Send at least 1 byte for total mailbox size so in case we are unable to parse server’s response we don’t get division by zero error.
-FIX: Reset countdown for next server message check, if we’ve done it manually.
-FIX: si.Mail not adding attachments to message if they were sent via MAPI.
-FIX: Wrong urlEncode function used, so some characters were not encoded this resulted in si.Mail hanging in rare cases.
-FIX: Fixed exception when sending message and connection to server failed
-FIX: exception division by zero if only one item was in the mailbox and group by was used.

Site design changed

As updating static pages on this website was becoming more of an issue day by day I decided that it’s finally a time to get rid of static html pages. I hope that you’ll like this new design (It’s basis is SoSuechtig WordPress Theme made by Patrick Queisler). I’ve even decided to use so popular lightbox for showing images on this site, so they open in the same window. Site most definitely works/looks OK, if you are using Firefox, if you don’t, I really don’t know what you are still waiting for.

For now the archives are available here.

Status update February 2008

So as there was no news for about two months let me tell you what I’m currently working on. I started on spam plug-in support which will allow you to select a plug-in which will then process messages and mark them as spam or ham.
I’m also working on something that will come in handy to those of us who are using si.Mail in companies and are currently writing our to do lists and meetings on Post it notes. As you’ve probably guessed from the sentence above, yes si.Mail will get Task and Calendaring abilities. So let me post a few screenshots here. Those of you who feel brave enough can download latest development build and play around. Also I have to warn you that as Tasks & Calendaring are still in development and are there for testing purposes only. Feature can be disabled just like Mail Views feature, to lower the memory consumption and simplify user interface.
