Claws Mail Update!

I’ve noticed that lately the Claws-MailGutsy repository I had set up wasn’t responding to apt-get. Then today I saw that there is a new version out. After a bit I found the proper repositories.

Here they are:

deb gutsy main
deb-src gutsy main

Those work fine, and after an update the new version should install fine.

This version brings tons of new features. Here is the list from (and most likely from the changelog):

# Added support for /dev/mem_notify. This Linux kernel feature will allow applications to be notified that memory has to be freed before getting OOM-killed.

# Enabled moving/copying folders to root folders when using the folder selection dialogue.

# Global and per-folder templates can now override the From name.

# Added a tooltip with extended folder stats. (Hover the cursor over the short stats on the right, below the message list.)

# Implemented 2-line items in the message list when in three column mode.

# Added support for png themes.

# Added an icon for attached patches (text/x-patch and text/x-diff).

# When viewing a message that has a large amount of text, show a maximum of 1MB of text and add a noticeview to show optionally show the whole message.

# Added a button to the templates preferences to restore defaults for current language.

# Added search in filtering rules list.

# Bogofilter Plugin:
Added a “learn from whitelist” preference.

Added information when fetching large messages.

# tools/
Added support for Kmail/Kaddressbook.

# Updated translations: Brazilian Portuguese, Finnish, French, German, and Italian.
