[Evolution] Feature request summary for December 18th, 2000.

Hello lovers of evolution,

After a crazy release schedule last week, Evolution 0.8 "Archaeopteryx" was released on Saturday. After a little inital packaging error, I think it is now avaliable on Redhat (6,7) and Debian. Packages for other distributions will come shortly because of glibc problems and whatnot.

Anyhow, it was great getting all the feedback from everyone for the past two weeks. I've filtered through (with evolution, of course) most of the requests I got and included those that seems to be most show-stopping right now. As Miguel told me, I'm now gonna include a little disclaimer:

`This is a list of assembled features that people have

       requested, they do not represent my views.'


As you guys can all see, I've gone a bit crazy with Evolution's HTML mail capabilities. If you're reading this, you really should give the new release a go, because it is really polished now and definitely usable on a day-to-day basis (if you find bugs, tell me!). I'll post a plain-text version tomorrow.

Anyhow, that's all for now and have a happy holiday!
