Pretty cool, eh?

woohoo!

I fell in love with evolution the first time I saw it, unfortunately it's still unstable on my system.

Anyone know if it's gonna end up in the official Evolution release?

Re: woohoo!

No, it will not go in the official Evolution release. Not everyone uses LiveJournal! :)

It will be very simple to install though. You'll first install the Evolution debs (from red-carpet or wherever) and then install a logjam-evolution-component deb. Painless and beautiful.

Re: woohoo!

hopefully you'll also release source so that those of us Red Hat folks can use it.

an rpm would be nice. source will do (i'll make the rpm).

remember, not everyone uses debian. ;)

Re: woohoo!

Dude, of course. It is open source.

You won't have to make a new spec file, just use the same one you've got for logjam and add a logjam-evolution-component section to it.

This is all very premature, though. The above is just a screenshot. Patches will go into logjam CVS when and if Evan accepts them, and it's not wise to distribute RPMs or debs before things are stable.

Re: woohoo!

Well, maybe I was being a touch sententious. :) Perhaps I should have said, "Let's not make debs or rpms until the component can post journal entries without crashing."

The Ximian folk are willing to deal with criticism from all corners. Everybody has their favorite rag to chew on, but I'm impressed because they actually put out some nice code.

How do I write my own plugins?

This is cool. I want to write my own plugins. Is there any documentation available on this?

Re: How do I write my own plugins?

C is self-documenting.

(That's a joke in poor taste. Sadly, there is no documentation.)

Re: email/calendaring for GNOME and Linux

Forgive my ignorance, and don't take this the wrong way, but does Evolution (read: even the email part) work yet? I mean, lots of people are working on mail clients that are in a "working" state, but I'm just doomed in terms of clients.

For example, I tried tradeclient on a 2000 message POP mailbox and it proceeded to download (and delete) all of my mail. This is normal procedure for a POP client, I know, but the mail is supposed to appear in the inbox, and in this case it didn't. =]

Re: email/calendaring for GNOME and Linux

Seconded. Evolution does some wacky stuff where it imports mbox files into its own internal format... which I'm sure is "better" than the standard format, but... I don't trust it.

I use mutt, 'cause it sucks less. :)

But still, I think this is a cool hack.

Re: email/calendaring for GNOME and Linux

Mutt sucks a lot less, but when it boils down to it, I want/need some inline attachments and dragging messages to folders. I have FAR too much mail to do it all by hand in textmode =] HTML mail reading would be a plus too....

Re: email/calendaring for GNOME and Linux

Mutt will do mass mail moves quite handily, use the "tag" feature.

For html email, the only nice answer is evolution.

Re: email/calendaring for GNOME and Linux

The stability of Evolution varies for everyone; it's definitely a work in progress. For me, the 0.9 release was quite good, but the 0.10 release had some issues. If the integrity of your mailbox is vital to you, stick with mutt. It's stable and functional, if not beautiful.

I switched from mutt to Evolution for my main mail client when 0.11 came out. If you're looking for stability, I suggest NOT using the cvs snapshots, and sticking to the latest release instead.

I can vouch for Evo IMAP support, which is considerably harder to do right than POP support. Will it work for you? The best way to find out is to try it. :)
