Filed under
KDE

Hi all,
we are pleased to announce version 0.6 of Trojitá, a fast Qt IMAP e-mail client. This release brings several new features as well as the usual share of bugfixes:

Plugin-based infrastructure for the address book, which will allow better integration with other applications
Usability improvements in the message composer on several fronts
Better keyboard-only usability for those of us who do not touch mouse that often
More intuitive message tagging, and support for standardized actions for junk mail
Optional sharing of authentication data between IMAP and SMTP
Change to using Qt5 by default. This is the last release which still supports Qt4.
Improved robustness on unstable network connections
The old status bar is now gone to save screen real estate
IMAP interoperability fixes
Speed improvements

This release has been tagged in git as "v0.6". You can also download a tarball (GPG signature). Prebuilt binaries for multiple distributions are available via the OBS, and so is a Windows installer.
