Geary E-Mail App Version 0.8 Released With Inline Composer

Yorba’s Geary e-mail client is one of the most popular one for Linux desktops nowadays. It’s actually the default e-mail client in elementary OS. Ubuntu 14.04 has Geary 0.6.x version in the repository and so does in elementary OS and Linux Mint. A new version, 0.8 was released yesterday with some very nice additions. Here’s the list of new features and changes:

  • Redesigned mail composer (it runs inside of the main mail instead of popup window)
  • Signature support
  • Support for disabling draft saving to server
  • Uses GTKHeaderBar and modern widgets
  • Improved database speed
  • Improved IMAP connection stability
  • Bug fixes

Download & Install

Feel free to choose any of the download methods below. I suggest the 1st one as that is the easiest of all and you’ll get future updates automatically as well.


This is how the inline composer looks like in Geary 0.8.
