Balsa team would like to officially announce balsa-2.1.0 release
available at http://balsa.gnome.org/
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
http://balsa.gnome.org/balsa-2.1.0-1.i386.rpm (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
http://spruce.sourceforge.net/gmime/ or directly from http://balsa.gnome.org/gmime-2.1.1.tar.bz2
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,
On behalf of balsa team,
