Evolution 2.22 released

I sent an announcement mail for Evolution 2.22. A sneak-peak of what we have done in 2.22

 Spam Improvements

  • Bogofilter as default spam filter
  • White list support
  • Junk detection based on server side spam headers (Faster as messages won’t be download)
  •  Junk/NotJunk flags stored on the IMAP Server (Second instance of Evolution detects spam automatically from stored  headers)

UI Improvements

  • New look Tango icons
  • Non intrusive error reporting and logging framework
  • Message tagging (Custom labels)

New Backends

  • Google calendar support

Memory Improvements

  • Major design change in memory handling in libical. EDS should take/have very less memory.
  • Loads of valgrind/memory leak fixes

GtkHTML Improvements

  • Frame/IFrame Anchor support
  • Saving embedded html image

General Improvements

  • Improved mime parsing. (Evolution parses much more than thunderbird)
  • Crash detection (Helps to disable preview pane, if the previous crash was due to last rendered email)
  • Experimental External Editor plugin
  • Plugin configuration support
  • Clean up of new mail notification configuration to plugin configuration
  • Password improvements (Now passwords are forgotten only for invalid credentials and not for all errors)

Bug fixes

  • Nearly 50 crash fixes
  • Some very important bug fixes
    • VFolder/trash/junk crashes
    • Itip-viewer crashes
    • Calendar/libical crashes
    • Summary/Folder mismatch
    • Exchange filtering crashes
    • Exchange connection lost fixes
    • GtkHTML rendering crash fixes

and nearly 450 bug fixes

Thanks a lot to every one who contributed patches/bug/debug informations/others for Evolution 2.22. Please have a look at the wiki for more information on what is coming up for Evolution 2.24.

    Awesome, I’m planning to roll back to Evolution for Hardy. Had to escape to Thunderbird for the last few years. I see many of my larger problems in this list. Nice work!

    Sweet! I’ve been using it in hardy for a while, and it’s good to see lots of new features in this venerable piece of software (I’ve used it since perhaps 1.0, IIRC).

    can’t seem to figure out how to make the google calendar bit to work, though…

    Congratulations for the new release.

    I don’t know whether this is a planned feature or not (it is mentioned at http://www.go-evolution.org/Attachments). Will Evolution 2.22 allow the user to delete attachments without having to delete the message that contains them?

    Many thanks and congratulations again for your excellent work,

    Pablo

    Soo, now all we need is for this (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=205137) bug to be fixed…

    And get the speed back…
