After a bit over a year since version 1.0, here is version 1.2. This is
mostly a bugfix release, but there are also a number of new features.
- Substantial (algorithmic) speed-up of message-threading; this also (or especially) affects mu4e, since threading is the default. See commit eb9bfbb1ca3c for all the details, and thanks to Nicolas Avrutin. - The query-parser now generates better queries for wildcard searches, by using the Xapian machinery for that (when available) rather than tranforming into regexp queries. - The perl backend is hardly used and will be removed; for now we just disable it in the build. - Allow outputing messages in json format, closely following the sexp output. This adds an (optional) dependency on the Json-Glib library.
- Bump the minimal required emacs version to 24.4. This was already de-facto true, now it is enforced. - In mu4e-bookmarks, allow the `:query` element to take a function (or lambda) to dynamically generate the query string. - There is a new message-view for mu4e, based on the Gnus' article-view. This bring a lot of (but not all) of the very rich Gnus article-mode feature-set to mu4e, such as S/MIME-support, syntax-highlighting, For now this is experimental ("tech preview"), but might replace the current message-view in a future release. Enable it with: (setq mu4e-view-use-gnus t) Thanks to Christophe Troestler for his work on fixing various encoding issues. - Many bug fixes
- Now requires guile 2.2.
