I was thinking that it might be a good idea to share my view on how Trojitá is going on, and what my plans for its future are. For a quick overview of Trojitá, a fast and lightweight IMAP client, please look at the project homepage or see the FAQ.
So, with version 0.2.9.3 out (what a nice number, isn't it?), it's time to take a look at what needs to be done before people can actually use Trojita on a daily basis. For my use case, the following is really lacking:
- The mail composer just sucks. It sucks in quite a few ways, from simple stuff like using proportional font (fixed yesterday) to mangling of all addresses which go through the widget or not saving the resulting message anywhere. It needs attention.
- Reply function, with proper quoting.
- Quick search through messages in the current mailbox. I often need to find a particular message, and simply typing a part of its subject, or a sender or recipient, is what I use most often. A full-blown multi-mailbox search is probably not needed at this point, but a basic, quick input box for searching would be very much welcome.
There are many more issues, both major and minor, and I've filed some of them at the roadmap for Trojitá 0.3 in Redmine. It's very likely that I forgot to mention something, so please, feel free to submit issues and/or comment on what is the biggest blocker for you.
I'm really looking forward to hearing from you, so if you have a minute and this post caught your interest, get Trojitá and write a mail to tell us what is lacking.
All the best,
