New Postbox Release, and What’s Next

October 5, 2009

Postbox 1.0.1 Now Available

A new version of Postbox is now available!  This release contains a number of features and improvements requested by Postbox users, and represents the first of many rapid releases to come.

Here’s what’s new and improved in 1.0.1:

  • You can now Archive to any folder within any account - even across accounts and to local folders too!  This makes it possible to do things like archive mail from your Yahoo! account to a folder on Gmail.
  • Conversation views can now be customized to display in chronological or reverse chronological order.
  • Message headers within conversation views will now display contact photos, making it easier to scan for and identify participants in a conversation.
  • Favorite topics can now be assigned to the selected message using 1-9 on your keyboard.
  • The color of a topic can now be applied to the entire row in the message list.
  • A larger font size can now be used within the message list (Mac only).
  • Quick Look is now supported on Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6).
  • For power users, Postbox can be configured to no longer insert the “- -” before signatures (see the release notes for details)
  • Support for the popular Enigmail add-on, which will allow you to sign and encrypt messages using PGP.
  • Fixed a problem some users have been having with having to re-enter their License code for Postbox after an update or restarting.
  • Several reliability fixes and security updates from the latest Mozilla Firefox 3.0.14 release.

For the full list of changes, please see the release notes.

What’s Next?

Lot’s of exciting things will be happening over the next few months.  We’re now gearing up our localization efforts for Postbox starting with the most highly requested languages. Current Postbox users will be able to switch to localized versions as they become available.  If you would like to participate in our localization efforts or be informed of developments as they arise, please sign-up for our localization newsletter.

We’re also evaluating all the terrific feedback we’ve received over the beta period and since we shipped 1.0, and are currently prioritizing these features and scheduling them into our release roadmap.  Some features will be familiar to our Get Satisfaction community, but we will also have some surprises in store as well.

And staying true to our rapid release model (we had 16 betas!), the next version of Postbox is just around the corner, so stay tuned to see what comes next.
