It’s been a wee while since I last spoke about the elementary mail application ‘Postler’ but, in the last few days, the project has finally come to Launchpad.
What is Postler?
Postler is a destkop e-mail application designed to ‘get out of the way’ and let a user handle their mail.
Is there a beta available?
The application is still being actively developed so, unless I have incredibly high standards, don’t take its’ ‘coming’ to launchpad as a signal that it’s ready for the prime time yet.Nevertheless it’s usable (to varying degrees) and a beta is likely forthcoming fairly soon.
The first ‘stable’ release is being targeted for April/May 2011.
If you’re curious about what it is and want to lend a hand in development you’ll find the code branch and associated contact information over @ launchpad.net/postler
It’s very simple to get up and running. Just pull the branch and build using: -
- ./waf configure
- ./waf build
- sudo ./waf install
