MX17 Repository: the claws-mail thread

#1 Post by mmikeinsantarosa » Mon Mar 12, 2018 10:44 pm

claws-mail-3.16 is now available from the test repository. It looks like quite a bit of work went into this release.
Check out the release notes page for more info.

It was pulled for 3.16. The last release that had it was 3.15 and we only have it for MX15 in the MX test repo.

edit: I had backported the one from buster and it's not in the one from sid either.

The source code is here: http://www.claws-mail.org/releases.php I downloaded it and found fancy there, I think if someone knew what they were doing it could be made (not me). Here on my computer "Downloads/claws-mail-3.16.0/src/plugins/fancy/". Maybe??

From what I can gather, the fancy-plugin & gtk3 offer too much of a security risk to keep.
here's a couple threads: gentoo archlinux

I've installed / upgraded claws-mail-3.16
with the following plugins I'm using:

Code: Select all

claws-mail-address-keeper - Plugin Address Keepe
claws-mail-bogofilter - Bogofilter plugin for Claws Mail
claws-mail-i18n - Locale data for Claws Mail (i18n support)
claws-mail-multi-notifier - Various new mail notifiers for Claws Mail
claws-mail-pdf-viewer - PDF and PostScript attachment viewer for Claws Mail
claws-mail-pgpinline - PGP/inline plugin for Claws Mail
claws-mail-pgpmime - PGP/MIME plugin for Claws Mail
claws-mail-smime-plugin - S/MIME signature/encryption handling for Claws Mail
claws-mail-themes - Pixmap icon themes for the Claws Mail mailer
As I'm not using the fancy-plugin anyway I seldom see a need
for viewing the HTML-part. But if need I do open the HTML-part
with dillo-browser - even with turned off remote CSS and remote pictures anyway.

Seems all running perfectly. :number1:
Well done! Thanks!
