Easier navigation between messages in the same thread
I’m probably not the only one that is subscribed to a lot of mailing lists or has a really long conversations which span trough some 10s of messages. To ease the navigation between messages in the same thread I decided to move part of the thread closer to the message I’m currently reading. Starting with today’s builds there is a Message threads pane displayed at the bottom of message view pane.
This is how it works: After the message is loaded the following messages from the same thread are shown:
- parent message
- message being read message (will be colored differently)
- messages on the same level as message being read
- messages one level lower (deeper into the conversation) as message being read
Update 10.01.2010: The implementation in today’s development version actually works, but it’s still a bit rough around the edges.
