I'm happy to announce the release of Sup 0.7. The big win in this release is that Ferret index corruption issues should now be fixed, thanks to an extensive programming of locking and thread-safety-adding. The other nice change is that text entry will now scroll to the right upon overflow, thanks to some arcane Curses magic. To get it: gem install sup, or visit http://sup.rubyforge.org. What is it? ----------- Sup is a console-based email client for people with a lot of email. It supports tagging, very fast full-text search, automatic contact- list management, and more. If you're the type of person who treats email as an extension of your long-term memory, Sup is for you. Sup makes it easy to: - Handle massive amounts of email. - Mix email from different sources: mbox files (even across different machines), Maildir directories, IMAP folders, POP accounts, and GMail accounts. - Instantaneously search over your entire email collection. Search over body text, or use a query language to combine search predicates in any way. - Handle multiple accounts. Replying to email sent to a particular account will use the correct SMTP server, signature, and from address. - Add custom code to handle certain types of messages or to handle certain types of text within messages. - Organize email with user-defined labels, automatically track recent contacts, and much more! The goal of Sup is to become the email client of choice for nerds everywhere. Select changes in this release: * Ferret index corruption issues fixed (hopefully!) * Text entry now scrolls to the right on overflow, i.e. is actually usable * Ctrl-C now asks user if Sup should die ungracefully * Add a limit:<int> search operator to limit the number of results * Added a --query option to sup-tweak-labels * Added a new hook: shutdown * Automatically add self as recipient on crypted sent messages * Read in X-Foo headers * Added global keybinding 'U' shows only unread messages * As always, many bugfixes and tweaks

Hi, I am trying to get started with sup, and I got some problems regarding gem dependencies. I am in Ubuntu 8.10: jesus@jesus-laptop:~/$ ruby -v ruby 1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [i486-linux] jesus@jesus-laptop:~/$ gem1.8 -v 1.2.0 I did: gem install sup and it installed this: jesus@jesus-laptop:~/$ sudo gem1.8 install sup Building native extensions. This could take a while... Successfully installed lockfile-1.4.3 Successfully installed mime-types-1.16 Successfully installed locale-2.0.0 Successfully installed gettext-2.0.0 Successfully installed fastthread-1.0.5 Successfully installed sup-0.7 6 gems installed Then when trying to run sup-config I had to manually install the following gems in order to make it work: echoe archive-tar-minitar nokogiri hoe rcov After that, it worked. I'm going to mess around a little bit with this to see if I can get used to it, but idea looks very promising. I use gmail for my personal email and agree with the ideas you have taken from them. I would like to use sup for my work email, but I would need it to support pop, so I'll have to wait for that. Anyway, thanks for sup, it looks great ! Hope this helps, Jesus.

None of those strings exist anywhere in the Sup code. I *think* the problem is that these are listed as development dependencies that older versions of Rubygems interpret as runtime dependencies, but not as installation prerequisites. But I ain't a gems expert. If you're using rubygems < 1.3.1, you might retry with a later version. (Or not, since you've fixed the problem the easy way.)

I'm no rubygems expert either, so I though I'd mention the problem I had. If this is an already well known issue, sorry for the noise. Regards, Jesus.

Is it 1.9 compatible? I do not see any mention on that. I tried to install ferret and it fails compilation (this is with clang/ccc but I do not think this is the issue there). ccc -I. -I/usr/local/include/ruby-1.9//amd64-freebsd7 -I/usr/local/include/ruby-1.9//ruby/backward -I/usr/local/include/ruby-1.9/ -I. -fPIC -O -pipe -O2 -g -Wall -Wno-parentheses -fPIC -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -oglobal.o -c global.c global.c:307:32: warning: format string is not a string literal (potentially insecure) sprintf(q, s); ^ global.c:372:24: error: incompatible type passing 'int', expected 'struct timeval' rb_thread_wait_for(rb_time_interval(rb_float_new((double)micro_seconds/1000000.0))); ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2 diagnostics generated. *** Error code 1

Reformatted excerpts from Ollivier Robert's message of 2009-03-27: > Is it 1.9 compatible? I do not see any mention on that. Very far from it. If nothing else, it has 10 gem dependencies, and I'd guess at least 8 of those are not 1.9-ready.
