LinuxPR: theKompany.com Announces Seventh Aethera Beta (version 0.9.7)

New releases will start to come much more frequently now. This
release includes lots of bug fixes and speed improvements as well
as updating the embedded Korganizer component to version 3.0. Most
of the details for the project roadmap can be found at
www.thekompany.com/projects/aethera, but this is subject to change
as we are constantly researching new features. The web site has
also now been updated, so it is now current. Bug reports,
suggestions and ideas can be sent to aethera@thekompany.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).

  • 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

  • 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
  • Korganizer has now been integrated as the calendar/scheduling
    component using Korelib and TINO

  • New menu options for showing and hiding dock widgets
  • A commercial Jabber client plug in is expected to be available
    next week

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 a
tarball format, just download the files from
www.sf.net/projects/aethera, login as root and do:

Using the tarball (absolute path)
tar xvfz aethera-0.9.5.tgz -P
After installation you can run by typing:

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.
