2015-04-16 Update:

Sadly Hastymail2 is no longer being maintained. Happily this is because we are working on a new web-based E-mail client, called Cypht. If you need support your best bet is the #hastymail IRC channel at freenode. Thanks to everyone who contributed to and supported this project!


Hastymail2 RC 6 Released

    It has taken longer than I wanted to get this release out the door, mainly because some of the changes were bigger than I anticipated. Things are looking good though with lots of fixes and updates since the last release. Thanks as always to everyone who has been supporting the project with testing and feedback. Lots of bugs have been squashed and several areas have seen some nice improvements, like folder list handling and theme capabilities to name just two. I had hoped to have a new theme ready for this release based on a design posted in our forums but I am just not happy with it yet. I will add that to SVN in the next week or two once I find some time to whip it into shape. Here is the full list of what is new since RC5. If you give Hastymail a try we want to hear from you so check out our Contact page and let us know what you think.

Code Updates for April 19

    I had hoped to have RC6 out by now, but just have not had enough time. Development has been busy though and the main things I wanted to complete before the release are in place in SVN, so after a few days of testing I hope to get the next candidate out. Once again thanks to the folks posting in the Forums and Tracker, feedback and support have been great. While working on improving the theme system I noticed some duplicated code and spent some time unifying it, which is the main reason things are a bit behind schedule. Here is what is new since the last update:

Code Updates for April 8

  As much as I wanted to get RC6 out this past week it just did not come together. Development has been busy though, including a few additional bug fixes as well as some updates to the theme system. A generous poster in the forums put together a nice new interface design in a PSD file, and implementing the layout has illuminated some shortcomings of themes that are in the process of being improved. You can check out a screenshot of the current state of this new theme at the bottom of this post. Unless some new issues come to light I hope to have an initial version of this new theme done this week and RC6 out by early next week. In the meantime here is what is new in SVN since the last news post:

Code Updates for March 28

    RC5 has been out for about a week now and the feedback has been great. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to test and report issues. We have a few fixes and updates in SVN already, and I think I am going to push out RC6 sooner rather than later (probably within another week). I am going to stop adding new features, except in plugins, and really focus on getting things stabilized. Here is whats new in SVN since RC5:

Hastymail2 RC 5 Released

We are happy to announce that the fifth release candidate of Hastymail2 is now available. This version has a lot of great updates since the last release. As always thanks to everyone supporting the project with suggestions and feedback. Here is the change log for RC5:

Code Updates for March 12

     It has been another busy week for Hastymail2 development. Lots of testing is going on and several fixes and new features have been added thanks to great feedback. We have had a bump in traffic due to a couple of mentions on some moderately popular sites. Thanks to those spreading the word about Hastymail2, we appreciate the support. Here is what is new since the last update:

Code Updates for March 6

  It has been a busy week for Hastymail development!. The AJAX system got an overhaul and it's efficiency is significantly improved. Several small bugs have been fixed and a few features added, the most notable being IMAP UTF7 folder name support and the ability to forward a message as an attachment. A lot of work has gone into finally resolving some display issues that were causing problems with various browsers. Included at the end of this post are some screenshots of the latest layout in some different browsers to illustrate. Here are the details of whats new since the 1st:

Code Updates for March 1

    RC4 has been out for a while now and I am happy to say that we received some great feedback. Thanks to everyone who tried it out and posted in the forums or tracker. Several issues have been addressed and there are some changes worth noting in the code. The biggest updates are a handful of changes to address the amount of server memory Hastymail2 uses to handle a request. By moving the code into separate include files memory use has been reduced by anywhere from 1-3 MB at the cost of adding 1-2 more include files. Also attachment downloads now use a streaming model that should allow any size attachment to be downloaded without having a significant impact on memory use. Here is the full list of updates since RC4:

Hastymail2 RC 4 Released

   It has been a busy January for Hastymail2 development. We are happy to announce that the fourth release candidate of Hastymail2 is available for download. This release contains several bug fixes to the core code with most of the new development going on in plugins. This includes some fixes and updates to existing plugins the most notable of which is event support for the calendar plugin, as well as 2 new additions since RC3, the "notices" and "news" plugins. Also the main javascript includes have been compressed and combined to reduce the overall page load time. Thanks to everyone who has provided feedback and testing. We appreciate your support. Read on for the full list of changes since RC3.

Code Updates For January 14

   It has been a great start to the year for Hastymail2 development. Plugin work has been active and several fixes to the core code have gone into SVN since RC3 was released. The core changes are small fixes here and there, with the exception of a set of changes to handle certain kinds of folder hierarchies better. On the plugin side we have a new plulgin, "notices", which lets users setup sounds or a pop up window to be activated when new mail is detected. The other big plugin news is the calendar now has event support using Mysql or Postgres, including support for repeating events. I posted a snapshot at the Download page for anybody interested in testing out the latest. Read on for the full list of changes:
