I'm a contributor to various free software projects. I like music, pizza, movies, my friends and my cats. I also like working on the GNUstep project (mainly fixing bugs and adding new features) and on various Java applications (payware and free) using distributed computing technologies. I also like doing C and assembly programming - mainly when I'm bored enough to continue my own microkernel.

Well.. I haven't updated my diary in a while but here it is! After a couple of months of development, I've finally managed to get GNUMail.app and Pantomime 1.1.0pre1 out.

Here is a small list of what has changed since the last release of GNUMail.app:

  • Reworked Preferences panel (now has a Standard / Expert views)
  • Now uses the OS X 10.2 Address Book by default under OS X and better auto-completion support when composing new mails under OS X and GNUstep
  • Added DnD support for attachments in the compose window
  • New Console (Window->Console) and new multi-threading code
  • Better OS X integration (using sheets, spell checking, etc)
  • New About panel
  • Better PGP support
  • Lots of other features, bug fixes and refactorings

You can download GNUMail.app 1.1.0pre1 from:


Here is a small list of what has changed since the last release of Pantomime:

  • Nearly entirely rewritten IMAP support (now faster, more stable, handles disconnection from the server and more)
  • Added SMTP over SSL support
  • Added maildir support
  • Fixed the CRAM-MD5 SMTP code
  • Initial message threading support
  • Lots of bug fixes and refactorings

I'm now working on 1.1.0pre2 which should be released in a matter of weeks (2 to 4). I plan to enhance even more the IMAP support (non-blocking download for big attachments), optimize the caching code and offer even better OS X integration.



It has been a little while since I wrote a diary entry. Today I've finally released GNUMail.app 1.0.3 and Pantomime 1.0.5.

GNUMail.app 1.0.3 provides major feature enhancements over the last release like PGP/GPG support, the possibility to reuse a mail window when opening a folder, the possibility to view a message in a separate window when double-clicking on it and more.

You can get GNUMail.app here and Pantomime here.

Humm.. this has been a long time since I haven't updated my diary. Sorry about that.

Well, the good news are the I've finally managed to get some time to work on the GPG / PGP bundle for GNUMail.app. I've commited the first version of the bundle last night.

If things progress the way I want in the following days, I should be able to release a new version of both GNUMail.app and Pantomime over the weekend.



This has been quite a long and productive weekend for me. I've almost finished everything I had to do for the next release of GNUMail.app.

The only real thing remaining that I need to work on is the PGP/GPG support. The bundle is shaping up quite nicely and everything will be integrated (for sure, and finally!) in the next release.



After weeks of efforts, I'm glad to announce the release of GNUMail.app 1.0.2 and Pantomime 1.0.4.

You can see a screenshot of GNUMail.app running under Linux/GNUstep here and under Apple Mac OS X here.
