@mjog @gnome Using geary 0.13 since yesterday, it is so awesome!!!!

@mjog does it have the new icon or the app menu migration?

@brainblasted
I don't think there is a new icon for Geary, is there?

Regarding the app menu, I can't find it, but I can't find the primary menu supposed to replace it either.

Actually, it seems I have the app menu in a weird menubar below the headerbar.

Still, it's good to see Geary evolve, thanks for the good news (and the work)
@mjog !

@mjog I discarded Geary a few months back due to the lack of composer functionality. I will definitely check it out again! :)

@martins Let me know what you think!

Out of curiosity, what was missing from the composer that you needed?

@mjog I remember bullet points were not there at the time, neither was the ability to add links I believe. Not sure if I had problems with archiving emails as well, but I believe I did.

I find Geary's design much more appealing than Evolution's, as the latter seems unnecessarily crowded and doesn't scale well (mainly regarding text size changes).

@martins Adding links in the composer have been supported for a few releases, but bulleted lists are new in this release.

If you run into more problems archiving, do let me know!

@mjog it's impossible to change the sender name at the moment, but besides that, everything looks great! :)

@martins Good to hear! Hopefully will be landing a fix for the sender name problem shortly - keep an eye on gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/geary/i :)

@mjog Yes!! I'm so excited that I won't have to make Gmail app passwords for Geary!!

@corbin Yah, GOA/OAuth2 support has been a long time coming. Lemme know how it works for you!

@mjog Really hoping I can switch over to Geary one day, just some fundamental aspects of my email experience like client-side filters and GPG integration are missing (which exist either native to Thunderbird or via Enigmail). But Geary is making some amazing progress, real hats off to all the contributors working to improve the native email experience on the Linux desktop.

@JoshStrobl Thanks, yeah it's a great community effort! :)

GPG support is still on the roadmap. It's a big chunk of work, but we'll get it sorted out hopefully sooner rather than later.

If you have a moment, it would be good to get your use-cases for client-side filtering over in gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/geary/i - per my comment there I'd like to try to take a better approach than most mailers, so it would be good to know what people actually want to be able to do with their filers.

@mjog Will do! I'll set up Geary with all my mail accounts this weekend and use it for a bit so I have an up-to-date user experience and am best equipped to provide you feedback via that issue, and directly compare the latest Geary release with Thunderbird πŸ‘
