Geary email client is alive! New version released

Earlier I wrote about Pantheon Mail to replace Geary. Well, it seems like Geary is still alive while an old contributor of the project, Michael Gratton became an unofficial maintainer. This new version (0.11.0) includes new features, important bug fixes, improved server compatibility and improved network reliability.

Geary 0.8

Changes in Geary 0.11.0:

  • added archive special folder support;
  • added is:read, is:unread: is:starred search operators;
  • fixed using multiple search operators – to:, from:, etc.;
  • work around crashes caused by WebKitGTK+ 2.4.10;
  • fixed a crash when searching;
  • fixed images not being displayed in some HTML messages;
  • fixed empty main window when opened from notification;
  • fixed UI freezing when network connections are lost;
  • work better with Cyrus & other servers when network unreliable;
  • enabled the use of custom FTS3 tokeniser in SQLite 3.12 and later;
  • fixed inconsistent Composer ‘Detach’ button placement;
  • documentation improvements;
  • updated UI translations.
