It has been a great start to the year for Hastymail2 development. Plugin work has been active and several fixes to the core code have gone into SVN since RC3 was released. The core changes are small fixes here and there, with the exception of a set of changes to handle certain kinds of folder hierarchies better. On the plugin side we have a new plulgin, "notices", which lets users setup sounds or a pop up window to be activated when new mail is detected. The other big plugin news is the calendar now has event support using Mysql or Postgres, including support for repeating events. I posted a snapshot at the Download page for anybody interested in testing out the latest.
