Hastymail 1.0 Stable Released

This is the first stable release of Hastymail2. A lot of testing and
feedback has resulted in many bug fixes and improvements in all areas
of the core code. Several plugins have been updated with new features
and fixes, and 5 new ones have been added: username, saved_search,
custom_reply_to, login_alias, and pop_fetch. Supporting software like
tinyMCE and Soundmanager2 have been updated to newer versions, and the HTML content filter has been depracted in favor of htmLawed. The interface has been optimized to have fewer HTTP requests, better caching, improved theme CSS, and W3C valid XHTML.

Lots of great updates in this release. Reworked the AJAX system to

some missing strings, updates to the Dutch interface, and a new German

Hastymail2 RC 4 Released

Fixes in this release include correcting a bug with the navigation + action controls on the message view page, fixing a bug with the browser
redirect after replying to certain messages, solving a max url problem in the AJAX routines by converting calls to POST, correcting a date format bug in the logger plugin effecting db storage, fixing a display bug with hiding or showing the folder tree, and several improvements to the handling of some folder hierarchy types. The site javascript includes have been compressed and combined to reduce the overall total number of files and size by 50%. An option was added to display only IMAP subscribed folders. Two new plugins are available with this release, a "notices" plugin that plays a sound file or opens a popup window when a new message arrives, and a news reader plugin called "news" that supports both RSS and ATOM feeds and has content filtering,
a feed cache, and list merging support. The calendar plugin has major updates including the ability to add, edit, or delete events stored in Mysql or Postgres. Repeating events are supported, and an optional event total and link to today's calendar page can be displayed below the folder tree. The calendar now has quick links to navigate to current time periods and a "list all events" page to show all of a user's scheduled events.

Updates Since RC3

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.
