The Latest Geary In GNOME 3.12 | Faster Than Ever!


I am not using Geary since I only have a Gmail Mail, but from the last time I did try it, it seems noticeable faster, at least regarding to Gmail integration. And it carries lots lots of improvements too! The latest stable version is 0.4.3 which released 3 months ago, and since then Yorba gives us:

Geary 0.5.3 – 3 March 2014

  • Better styling of collapsed quotes
  • “Use IMAP credentials” option in account creation dialog
  • Fixed support for GMail drafts
  • Fixed background synchronizer
  • Fixed some unread count issues
  • Fixed some IMAP issues
  • Fixed theming issues
  • Other miscellaneous bugfixes

Geary 0.5.2 – 14 February 2014

  • Improved recognition of special folders for “Other” accounts
  • Prompt before permanently deleting messages
  • Allow searching for “from:me” and the like
  • Conversation viewer quoted text improvements
  • UI and icon improvements
  • Miscellaneous bugfixes

Geary 0.5.1 – 30 January 2014

  • Ability to save sent mail
  • Basic search operators
  • Separate trash, archive, and delete operations
  • Improved special folder handling for “Other” accounts
  • Fixed some IMAP issues
  • Speed improvements & miscellaneous bugfixes

Geary 0.5.0 – 12 December 2013

  • Port to GtkApplication
  • Use app menu instead of gear button menu, where available
  • Miscellaneous bugfixes

Note: 0.5.x are the unstable series towards to stable 0.6.

Those are lots of new things plus there are some more in the following screencasting since I am running it from Git, as it is today. What’s still missing is an option to run Geary in background, and I don’t really understand why they don’t add this highly anticipated feature.

Anyway, this is how it looks, the very latest Geary on the very latest GNOME!

Adwaita Dark needs some more attention and in my opinion the default (light) theme is way much better. But this time I thought to screencast with the dark one!
