Trojitá 0.3 released

Added by Jan Kundrát about 7 years ago

Trojitá 0.3

It's my pleasure to announce that version v0.3 of Trojitá, a fast and lightweight IMAP e-mail client based on the Qt library, is now available. For more details of what Trojitá is and who should use it, please see below.

Changes since version v0.2.9.4:

This release is a major one, bringing new features, plenty of bugfixes and two new contributors to the table. A quick summary of what has happened:

  • Drastic reduction in memory usage
  • Tagging e-mails (contributed by Shanti Bouchez)
  • Faster fetching of data
  • Much more efficient support for threading
  • More robust IMAP support
  • A new Debug menu
  • Autocompletion of e-mail addresses (contributed by Thomas Gahr)
  • Reporting server/client configuration through ID
  • Support of multipart/related for full rfc2387 compliance
  • Showing Trojita's homepage on start
  • GUI fixes (now finally works in dark themes)
  • SMTP works over SSL (contributed by Shanti Bouchez)
  • Expanded unit test coverage
  • Plenty of bugfixes and further improvements

What is Trojitá

Trojitá is a very fast and lightweight IMAP e-mail client written using the Qt library.

What could make Trojitá interesting for you:

  • It's a pure Qt4 application with no additional dependencies; it builds in two-and-half minutes on a five-year-old laptop
  • Robust IMAP core implemented using Qt's Model-View framework
  • Standards compliance is a design goal
  • On-demand message list and body part loading ("lazy loading")
  • Offline IMAP support
  • Support for bandwidth-saving mode aimed at mobile users with expensive connection
  • IMAP over SSH -- instead of going over an SSL socket, the server could be accessed via SSH
  • Safe and robust dealing with HTML mail

Please note that the "message sending" and "message composing" features of Trojitá are a bit lagging at this point and therefore it is not recommended to use Trojitá for these tasks apart from testing.

Certain features of Trojitá depend on the IMAP server's functionality. Trojitá is written from the bottom-up as an IMAP client and is designed around its feature set. For example, threaded message viewing (ie. "conversations") is supported only if the server implements an appropriate extension for now.

Trojitá is under heavy development, features are added on almost daily basis and the codebase is rapidly maturing. Certain useful features are still missing, there is no support for searching, for example. We have tickets opened for these, so please Cc yourself at the task tracker if you would like to follow the progress here.

Finally, as with any software, Trojitá has some bugs which are already known and reported in the issue tracker and some which are still waiting for discovery. That said, it is safe to use to for reading mail. I've been doing that for several years on a production account, and I have never lost a mail with Trojitá. Please do not send e-mails with current version, though, as it is known to produce non-standard messages in certain circumstances.

Where I can get it

Our web has all the required information, but if you are impatient and just want to grab the tarball for v0.3, download from Sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/trojita/files/src/trojita-0.3.tar.bz2/download

Trojitá is known to work on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows. It should also run on all platforms supported by Qt. A MeeGo version is still pending, though.

Reporting bugs and wishes

Please use this Redmine portal to report issues with Trojitá. If you do not want to be bothered by a registration, please at least send bug reports via e-mail or report them at the #trojita IRC channel on Freenode.

Community

Trojita could always use more people in the community. Areas in which people are needed most, as well as general guidelines about how we prefer to work are documented at Contributing_to_Trojita.

The IRC channel is #trojita on irc.freenode.net, the mailing list is trojita@lists.flaska.net (moderation required for non-subscribers, archived at various places etc).

Acknowledgment

A huge thank you goes to two new contributors who have submitted patches to make Trojitá better. It's my please to introduce Shanti Bouchez who is responsible for the new feature of tagging messages (and fixed STARTTLS for SMTP subscription in the process, among other things). The second contributor is Thomas Gahr who added e-mail auto-completion and fixed bugs.

Since its inception in 2006, many other people have contributed to Trojitá as well. I'd like to mention patches from Benson Tsai, John Rogelstad, Andrew Brouwers, Gil Moskowitz, Jiří Helebrant, Jun Yang, Justin J, and Tomáš Kouba, who have all sent patches in. Finally, another huge thank you goes to anyone who has reported bugs or helped make Trojitá better in any way.

Cheers,
Jan

Trojitá 0.2.9.4 released

Added by Jan Kundrát about 8 years ago

Trojitá 0.2.9.4

It's my pleasure to announce that version v0.2.9.4 of Trojitá, a fast and lightweight IMAP e-mail client based on the Qt library, is now available. For more details of what Trojitá is and who should use it, please see below.

Changes since version v0.2.9.3:

Most of the changes in this version happened under the hood. You won't likely see any user-facing changes, but the operation is more robust and quite a few crashers got fixed. The application will also by default create a debug log which is very beneficial when diagnosing possible issues; see the IMAP -> Logging menu for details.

The 0.3 will be much more interesting, but to get there, there's still quite a lot of stuff ahead.

It's my pleasure to announce that version v0.2.9.3 of Trojitá, a fast and lightweight IMAP e-mail client based on the Qt library, is now available. For more details of what Trojitá is and who should use it, please see below.

Most of the changes in this release fix bugs and improve IMAP interoperability, but we've got a few GUI improvement as well, like better indication of mailboxes containing "recent" messages.

Changes since version v0.2.9:

  • Visual indication for recent messages in mailboxes and threads with unread messages
  • Drag and drop of messages between folders
  • Improved threading
  • IMAP bug fixes and relaxed parsing for broken IMAP servers
  • Greater unit test coverage

xTuple integration

Trojitá 0.2.9 released

Added by Jan Kundrát over 8 years ago

Trojitá 0.2.9

It's my pleasure to announce that version v0.2.9 of Trojitá, a fast and lightweight IMAP e-mail client based on the Qt library, is now available. For more details of what Trojitá is and who should use it, please see below.

Most of the changes in this version happened under the hood, but there are some user-facing improvements -- the most prominent one is probably the support for display of message threading (ie. "conversations").

Changes since version v0.2:

  • Refactored core IMAP code with safer command pipelining and increased robustness
  • Message threading (aka "conversations") in the message list
  • Plenty of bug fixes and GUI tweaks
  • Improved unit test coverage
  • Internal changes allowing making new UI frontends easier
  • First real-world application of Trojita in a library-like fashion

Sadly, the Maemo version which first appeared as a beta during fall of 2010 could not be merged into the main repository before this release, but you should stay tuned for future updates.

xTuple integration

Trojitá is going to be featured as an addon for the xTuple business management software. Using Trojitá will enable xTuple customers to integrate e-mail messaging into their ERP systems. Please note that xTuple users should use packages provided by their vendor and not this source version.

What is Trojitá

Trojitá is a very fast and lightweight IMAP e-mail client written using the Qt library. While it is not intended for use as a regular e-mail client just yet, it could be interesting to play with it to see if the speed looks compelling to you.

What could make Trojitá interesting for you:

  • It's a pure Qt4 application with no additional dependencies; it builds in two-and-half minutes on a five-year-old laptop
  • Robust IMAP core implemented using Qt's Model-View framework
  • Standards compliance is a design goal
  • On-demand message list and body part loading ("lazy loading")
  • Offline IMAP support
  • Support for bandwidth-saving mode aimed at mobile users with expensive connection
  • IMAP over SSH -- instead of going over an SSL socket, the server could be accessed via SSH

Many of the optional IMAP features are not utilized at this point; there is no support for searching, for example. We have tickets opened for these, so please Cc yourself at the task tracker if you would like to follow the progress here.
