Getting late (listening to hIQ)

Well after a lot of work, I've done it. My changes to AeroMail are finished. In addition to the changes mentioned in my Feb 6th posting, I have made the following:

  • Textarea now wraps at 72 columns by default and is user definable. (thanks Chris)
  • Theme and Language display names are defined at the top of their respective files by the following format: //LanguageName: English or //ThemeName: Red
  • Date string for each message can now be configured to come from the header or the Date recieved from the IMAP server.
  • Date can be configured to different formats.
  • Forwarded messages are no longer quoted.
  • Bugfix: Index From: display will now check to see if personal is blank. If it is, it will set it to the e-mail address.
  • Titles on pages now are formated like this Program name - Folder or Action - # of messages, etc.
  • Added themes: red, blue and yellow.
  • Changed folders page to use the COLOR_ROW_ON, COLOR_ROW_OFF variables to alternate the color of the rows.
  • Bugfix: Fixed Personal name display problem on foreign character sets by using the e-mail address as the display name instead. I don't know of a better way to fix this one.
  • Bugfix: Missing newlines at the end of most of the files.
  • Fixed image attachment display so that it doesn't display the uuencoded text. This needs work though.
  • Composed messages now have a Message-ID: header line.
  • Replies to messages now add to the References: line or create it if there isn't one already.
  • Personal Name is added in the From: line along with the address.
  • Removed L_REFRESH_BTN translation in Hungarian language file because it's not referenced by anything.
  • Added option to options screen to let the user define their From line.
  • Made the MySQL options bit a configurable feature so that people who don't want to use a MySQL database for user options don't have to.
  • Appropriate changes made for languages.

So I've tarred up my new source tree and made a patch file against the aeromail 1.40 source code. I notified Mark Cushing with this info so that he can decide whether he is going to implement them in the next version or what. I'm going to give him a few days to respond before sending the patch to the AeroMail mailing list. I still haven't heard back from Mark on the e-mail I sent him a week ago.

WOW! It's 2:30am and I'm the stick tommorow morning.. Zzzzzzz.
