Current Status

  • August, 2006 After two and a half years, the new release of Mahogany has been made -- we are still alive!
    As usual, see the changelog for details.
  • January, 2004 Mahogany 0.66 released
    See changelog for the list of changes.
  • August 15, 2003 Mahogany 0.65 released
  • January 14, 2002 Mahogany 0.64 released
    New release brings huge performance improvements for IMAP and POP servers, local cache for POP3, HTML viewing and printing support, mailing list support and completely redone (and hopefully much better) new mail handling logic as well as SSL support in the Win32 version.
  • June 15, 2001 Mahogany 0.63 released
    This release mainly contains (huge) performance improvements and a lot of bug fixes, including several fatal ones in the Win32 version. It also has a few handy new features such as showing the number of messages in a folder directly in the folder tree tree.
  • March 22, 2001 Mahogany 0.62 released
    Release 0.62 is out now and fixes many fatal bugs from the last official release, 0.60 and brings improved performance. Windows binaries are available as well.

What next?
Please see roadmap for a more up-to-date plan for Mahogany future. 0.65 then will be primarily a bug fix release, we hope to have the following in it, in addition to 0.64:

  • integration of the latest version of imaptoolkit
  • improve the manual
  • make the key bindings configurable
  • better context-sensitive help
  • update the (badly out of date) translations
Somewhere between 0.65 and 0.70 we plan to seriously update the two areas of the programs which probably are the most awkward to use right now:
  • composer: in particular, plain text and HTML editors (similar to viewers)
  • finally implement drafts folder (depends on the previous item)
  • address book editor: many minor but annoying user interface fixes
As for 0.70, we hope to finally have the following major new features by then:
  • better cross-machine use support, possible ACAP support
  • real MIME type editor
  • encryption, PGP and GPG support

  • Created a roadmap and feature list for the first release
  • Set up a mailing list to prepare for the first public alpha release. 
  • Started fitting the new layout engine into M. The composition window works again, but still has a few minor glitches. Code is much cleaner now. Database editor being re-designed. M is sending mails again! 
  • The new layout engine works fine and is pretty fast. Now editing needs to be added and it can be integrated with M. New Database editor tab-control. Added a screenshot of them. 
  • Started major improvements on user interface. More button bars. Set up road-map for first release. 
  • Restructured some classes, moved from AppConfig to wxConfig. Started work on new layout engine for wxWindows2. wxGTK is now primary platform for development. 
  • Fully object-oriented Python integration works. First few classes and callback functions available, the rest is straightforward. First scripting examples tried. 
  • All STL classes are gone and compilation time is down. Python class hierarchy works. First formatted text output on wxWindows2 port. 
  • wxGTK/wxWindows2 ports compile, link and run, but still have some problems. Started replacing STL classes with better implementations. Python has access to first internal M classes. 
  • Python integration works, first simple scripts are running. wxGTK port compiles but still incomplete. 
  • Development back on track (though at slightly reduced speed), integrated Windows code, compiles again under Linux. 
  • Had a cycling accident at the end of March, so expect some delay in the development. Working on Python integration and filtering. 
  • Added support for clickable URLs in messages. Decided on header restructuring for supporting precompiled headers on Windows. Windows port (wxWindows 2.0) started. 
  • Fixed X-Face support, fixed global configuration file bug. Added user settings for fonts and started support for clickable URLs. Moved to Python 1.5. 
  • Got help by Vadim Zeitlin, trying to make M work with wxWindows 2.0 under Windows. 
  • Started integrating Python, successfully ran first script from within M
  • Fixed a profile handling bug which prevented new settings from being written. Found no traces of a memory management bug (no even with ElectricFence!). 
  • M now appears on the Gnome Software Map
  • Added support for XFaces (a little buggy still). Improved profile handling. Started looking for memory management bug. 
  • M now compiles and runs successfully under Solaris (SunOS 5.5.1, gcc-2.8.0)! For this to work, I fixed several minor bugs. 
  • ADB now collects mail addresses and names from header. Added editing capabilities for compose window. Implemented strsep() function for Solaris. 
  • Decided to postpone public release until M is reasonably complete. Do not have time for an alpha release. 
  • Improved handling of message/rfc822 content. M now fully suppports MIME contents of forwarded or returned mails (I do not know any other mailer which can do this!). Added Reply function. Several minor fixes. 
  • M now easily handles POP3,IMAP,NNTP and Unix mbox mailboxes. Regular checking for new mail. Mails can be appended to other mailboxes. Persistent list of folders to open on program start. 
  • Created a conversion script for BBDB database and tested M with a database of more than 400 records. Fixed several bugs. Improved database name expansion. Improved support for additional headers in mails. Added optional separator for signature. 
  • Database now working fine. Added an just the test ones. 
  • Added alias/name search and expansion to compose window. Started design of database editor. Reorganised window creation and fixed several bugs. 
  • Implementation of vCard-like address database. 
  • Several bug fixes, and new features for message folders. Remote folders (POP3/IMAP) work perfectly now. 
  • Added automatic detection of MIME types. Improved composition window with better file inclusion. 
  • Moved source to GNU configure and added support for wxGTK and Python. 
  • Created a preliminary logo. 
  • Added support for arbitrary user-defined header lines in messages. 
  • Started extending MailFolder classes to handle different mailbox types (POP, IMAP, file, INBOX) 
  • Composition window enhanced. Sending of mails with included files (via MIME) works. 
  • A composition window has been created and M eventually sent its first few mail messages! Mail sending sends fully MIME compliant multipart messages. So far only editing of text contents is provided, binary types will follow soon (simple to add). 
  • Profiles have been created and I started to make use of them. 
  • The configuration file framework has been improved. 
  • Full support for saving included binary files and external viewers. 
  • The MessageView code is finished, including full support for qqMIME handling, currently supporting the mailcap database in read-only mode. 
  • Full PostScript printing support. 
  • The basic GUI framework based on wxWindows 1.66 has been implemented. 
  • The mail handling library has been integrated in C++, supporting unix mail folders, POP3, IMAP. 
  • The MessageView code is mainly finished, including full support for MIME handling, currently supporting the mailcap database in read-only mode. Display of messages with included files using a SGML-subset display. 
  • Full PostScript printing support. 
  • Implementation is X11 only at the moment. It will be adapted to wxWindows 2.0 as it evolves. The final release will run both on Unix and Windows platforms. 
  • Started development (some day in late October 1997)
