A new release of Mahogany has been made.
Binaries for Debian Linux i386, Debian Linux AXP, Sun Solaris, Windows NT/98/95 and source are available immediately, binaries for RedHat Linux 5.2 and 6.0 will follow within the next two days.
Mahogany is an OpenSource(TM) cross-platform mail and news client. It is available for X11/Unix and MS Windows platforms, supporting a wide range of protocols and standards, including POP3, IMAP and full MIME support. Thanks to its built-in Python interpreter it can be extended far beyond its original functionality.
Mahogany's wealth of features and ease of use make it one of the most powerful clients available, providing a consistent and intuitive interface across all supported platforms.
It aims at supporting GNOME (and KDE for that matter) and includes an
extendable address book system supporting hierarchical organisation of
entries, group aliases, searching the database and easy editing, with
support for other program
s address database formats. Currently
Mahoganys native format and (X)Emacs` BBDB address books are
Mahogany is being developed using the free wxWindows application framework, building on the GTK+ toolkit on Unix.
Mahogany is constantly being tested on Linux-x86, Linux-alpha, Solaris-sparc and MS Windows. It should compile and work on any major Unix platform.
For the Unix versions, there are few differences, minor bug fixes and improvements, especially in the message editor, which behaves almost perfectly now. The major new addition is the Windows version, built from the same source as the Unix one. We hope to keep both platforms in sync for the future, making common releases. Also, work on a MacOS port has left the early stages and is making progress.
