Sup 0.0.3 Released


#1

The most usable version yet, with mbox-over-ssh support, imap support
that Finally Actually Works ™ and lots of speedups and bugfixes. With
this release Sup moves from alpha to beta, so you know it must be good.

I’d like to dedicate this release to my upstairs neighbors, who, through
a series of tragic birth defects and mutilating accidents, are
apparently restricted to forms of locomotion that involve stomping
really, really loudly.

Sup version 0.0.3 has been released!

http://sup.rubyforge.org

Sup is a console-based email client that combines the best
features of GMail, mutt, and emacs. Sup matches the power of GMail
with the speed and simplicity of a console interface.

Sup makes it easy to:

  • Handle massive amounts of email.

  • Mix email from different sources: mbox files (even across
    different machines), IMAP folders, POP accounts, and GMail
    accounts.

Changes:

== 0.0.3 / 2007-01-02

  • Major speed increase for index views (inbox, search results), which
    are now loaded completely from the IR index. The only time the
    original sources need to be touched is when viewing a thread. This
    is important for slow sources like IMAP and mbox+ssh.

  • Remote mbox support with mbox+ssh URIs.

  • IMAP now actually works.

  • sup-import uses HighLine and is generally much improved.

  • Multitudinous minor bug fixes and improvements.

Best dedication ever!

Small bug report: The net-ssh dependency seems to be missing in the sup
gem.

Another small bug report …

Thanks! Please try 0.0.4, which I just released. It’s all bugfixes.

One more error:

Other warnings about already defined constants (perhaps the same
module is being loaded multiple times).

The ArgumentError is coming from lib/imap.rb The “mailbox” variable
is never defined in the method.

Good word on this. I hope you having fun with it.

Blessings,

Your system is missing a Ruby system package. On my Debian system, it’s
called libopenssl-ruby.

Thanks, that fixed the problem.
