0.9.5) of our Aethera Messaging and Groupware client for KDE. New releases will
start to come much more frequently now. This release marks the conversion to a
pure Qt based application from KDE, which accounts for the delay in this release.
Most of the details for the project roadmap can be found a www.thekompany.com/projects/aethera, but this is subject to change as we are constantly researching new features. Bug reports, suggestions and ideas can be sent to email@example.com. Here is what is new and updated in this release: Aethera has now implemented our multiplatform component architecture with Korelib 0.8 and TINO (TINO Is Not OLE or This Is Not OLE). Plug ins will start to become available in the next 2 weeks. Our second step for implementation of the IMAP protocol is now complete, features include IMAP folder support - you can now create and remove the files locally and remotely. Folder support is using the subscribe/unsubscribe IMAP4 features Create new IMAP accounts using the configuration browser. Aethera can handle multiple POP3 and IMAP4 accounts Full Drag-n-Drop support A large number of bug fixes and usability improvements New GUI design One of the advantages to a pure Qt application is that distribution is now far easier than it was before. We've provided a binary in either a tarball or RPM, just download the files from www.sf.net/projects/aethera, login as root and do either: 1) Using the rpm rpm -hiv --nodeps --force aethera-0.9.5-1_tkc.i386.rpm 2) Using the tarball (absolute path) tar xvfz aethera-0.9.5.tgz -P After installation you can run by typing: /usr/local/bin/aethera We would also like to thank our friends at Sourceforge where the download files and bug tracking is now being hosted at https://sourceforge.net/projects/aethera/. For the time being the CVS is still on theKompany.com servers.
