Posted on Wednesday, February 24 2010 @ 20:56:49 CET by

Sylpheed is a simple, lightweight but featureful, and easy-to-use e-mail client. Sylpheed provides intuitive user-interface. Sylpheed is also designed for keyboard-oriented operation, so Sylpheed can be widely used from beginners to power users.

  • New features
    • Multi-threading was introduced. Connection to servers, IMAP4 protocol communication, query search and external commands execution will run on another thread. This will reduce the situation where user actions are blocked.
    • The feature to add new recipients to address book automatically on sending was added.
    • The new filter match type 'is in addressbook' was added. This can be used from filtering, query search and quick search.

  • Feature improvements
    • Summary caches are updated on the fly (on receive/move/copy/delete). This improves the performance of opening folders with many new messages.

    • Several new APIs were added to the plug-in library.
    • Progress is displayed while scanning folders.

    • Description is displayed on the quick search entry when it does not have focus.
    • Always show warning dialog when SSL certificate is expired.
    • When messages are added to IMAP folders, received-date information is also set using Date header (mainly for Gmail).
    • Color labels are saved on IMAP server now (partially compatible with Thunderbird.)
    • The auto-wrapping setting is preserved for draft messages now.
    • The spell-checking and PGP settings are preserved for draft messages now.
    • The 'Enable address auto-completion' setting was added.
    • Update check (curl command) timeout was set to 10 seconds.
  • Bugfixes
    • The update check dialog will not be displayed if modal dialog exists or receiving of mail is active to prevent dialogs becoming uncontrollable.
    • The button order of the folder selection dialog was modified.
    • Win32: the button order of close confirmation dialog of compose window was modified.
    • A workaround for crash caused by enchant with zemberek was added (requires dbus-glib-1 if enchant is equal or greater than 1.4.2).
    • The bug that IMAP caches with UIDs larger than INT_MAX were never deleted was fixed.
    • The problem that beep sound was out when opening folders which were sorted in descending order was fixed (with GTK+ 2.12 or later).
    • The address completion was modified.
    • Win32: The problem that GnuPG was not detected correctly was fixed, and Sylpheed can also detect gpg.exe put in Sylpheed folder now.
