This morning's 0.16.3+ development snapshot is up:
http://armedbear.org/j.zip (source and documentation)
http://armedbear.org/j-jar.zip (just j.jar)
Starting with the 0.16.3+ snapshot series, Enter has been mapped by
default in mailbox mode to mailboxReadMessageOtherWindow, which (as
its name suggests) displays the message in question in another window,
splitting the current window if necessary. This second window is
roughly analogous to what Outlook and Evolution call a preview pane.
By default, the original window is split in half, which may not be
exactly ideal. You can, of course, adjust things by dragging the
window divider up or down, and starting with today's snapshot, j
remembers the position of the window divider and restores it correctly
the next time it is necessary for mailboxReadMessageOtherWindow to
split the window, so your preview pane will continue to be whatever
size you've set, even across sessions.
If, in the interim (i.e. while the preview pane is closed), you change
the size of j's main window, the preview pane divider will be
repositioned, at the next invocation of mailboxReadMessageOtherWindow,
at the same relative height as before (relative, that is, to the total
available height within the editor frame).
This remembering of the divider position only applies to the preview
pane and mailboxReadMessageOtherWindow. Other commands that split the
window continue to split it in half, and adjustments to the divider
position in other split-window situations are not remembered.
You can use the command escape, mapped by default to the Escape key,
to dismiss the preview pane, leaving a full-height view of the mailbox
(The command mailboxReadMessage, which was mapped by default to Enter
in mailbox mode prior to the recent snapshot series, is now mapped to
Ctrl Enter, so if you prefer a full-height message buffer, Ctrl Enter
is your friend.)
Thanks for your support.
