ANNOUNCE: development balsa-2.1.0 released


Balsa team would like to officially announce balsa-2.1.0 release
available at

This is a release addressed to developers and beta-testers. It includes  
completely new mailbox backend: libmutt is out, Gmime is in. This has a  
number of adventages (further development should be much easier, and IMAP  
support should be mostly superior particularly on low-bandwidth links)  
but also disadvantages - the code needs some real-life usage.

You can get balsa-2.1.0 directly from (built on RH9)

The src.rpm file includes gmime and is ready for immediate building.  
Building from tarball requires earlier installation of gmime library.  
Gmime library is available from or directly from

Know problems include:
- unread message counters are not updated correctly.
- no SSL imap support.
- no working IMAP searching support.

Report the bugs (preferably together with patches!) either on the mailing  
list or to Bugzilla,

Happy mailing!

On behalf of balsa team,

Pawel Salek
