* Non-SSL accounts are now utilizing STARTTLS if available (thanks todi!)
* Mailnag now logs a warning if an unencrypted connection is detected
* Acountnames are now exported via the DBUS-API
* The config window is resizable now
* Misc other fixes and improvements
* Updated translations / removed badly maintained translations

Mailnag 1.1 Is Out In The wild!!1

Yesterday we uploaded a new Mailnag release.
Among other changes, there are three big improvements:

GNOME Online Accounts Integration
If you are a GNOME user, you no longer need to feed Mailnag with email account information you already entered in GNOME Online Accounts. Just install the GOA plugin and you're done.

Platform-specific Credential Back-Ends
Mailnag now tries to auto-detect the credential back-end ("keyring") of your desktop for encrypted account password storage. If no supported back-end can be found, Mailnag stores account passwords in its config file. A specific credential back-end may also be enforced in the config file. Supported options are currently "AUTO", "GNOME" and "NONE". This also means that the GNOME-Keyring dependency is now optional.

Improved Connectivity Tests
In previous versions, Mailnag was using a httplib based connectivity test which turned out to be pretty unreliable. Mailnag now checks for connectivity via NetworkManager where available and falls back to a PING based test where not. This behaviour can be overridden in the config file. Supported options are "AUTO", "NETWORKMANAGER" and "PING".

Packages for Ubuntu, Debian and Arch Linux are already available. 
Packages for other distros should be available soon.

Mailnag 1.0 released!
 
It's been a while since the last Mailnag release and 
quite a lot has changed since then. Here are some highlights:
 
Desktop-Independence
Until now, Mailnag was meant to be a mail checker daemon for 
GNOME 3 exclusively. As of this release, Mailnag supports many 
more desktop environments - it should work out of the box in 
Ubuntu (Unity), Linux Mint (Cinnamon), Elementary (Pantheon) 
and of course GNOME 3 (GNOME-Shell). In fact, it should even 
be possible to run the Mailnag daemon on headless systems 
(without desktop).
 
Plugins
Another big improvement is Mailnag's new plugin system. 
Mailnag 1.0 comes with a set of desktop-independent default 
plugins for visual/sound notifications, user script execution,
spam filtering etc and can be extended with additional plugins 
easily.
 
Desktop Integration
Additionally to the new Mailnag 1.0 core, I also released 
separate desktop-integration plugins for Ubuntu and GNOME 3.
These plugins extend Mailnag with desktop-specific indicator 
support and make Mailnag integrate seamlessly in those desktop's
respective notification systems.
 
Remote Control
The new DBus plugin allows other apps to remote control the 
Mailnag daemon and to receive signals on various events 
(e.g. mail arrival).
 
Full Changelog:
* Mailnag is desktop-independent now (was GNOME3-only)
* Added plugin system to allow easy extensibility
* Cut down the core daemon functionality to mail checking only 
  and moved everything else to plugins
* Released GNOME 3/Ubuntu Unity extension/plugin for a tighter 
  desktop integration
* Added account assistants for popular email providers like Gmail
* Added DBUS service (for remote control/integration in other apps)
* Redesigned and simplified config UI
* Added propper logging (log messages are sent to stdout and the 
  system log now)
* Heavy code cleanup & refactoring
* Reduced disk write access, other performance improvements
* Fixes for various major and minor bugs
* New icon by Reda Lazri

IMPORTANT NOTES:
The fileformat of the config file has changed. 
It's highly recommended to rename/backup your 
current config file (~/.config/mailnag/mailnag.cfg).

Packages:

Ubuntu (Mailnag core, Unity plugin + GNOME-Shell extension):
https://launchpad.net/~pulb/+archive/ubuntu/mailnag

Arch Linux (Mailnag core + GNOME-Shell extension):
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=0&K=mailnag

Debian (Mailnag core):
Mailnag 1.0 is available in Debian unstable and testing.

Fedora (Mailnag core):
Mailnag 1.0 is available in Fedora Rawhide.

Installation notes:
https://github.com/pulb/mailnag

I'd like to thank all people who helped to get this release out 
the door, especially +Vincent Cheng & +Thorsten Leemhuis 
for distro packaging, +Reda Lazri for icon and flyer art and 
+alt haser for translations!

The Mailnag project needs your help!

Good news: We'd like to release Mailnag 1.0 soon...
Bad news: ...but we need some help to add the finishing touches.

We're looking in particular for people who can 
* translate some string into their native language on launchpad (1)
* design a new project logo/icon (2)
* desing a new screenshot flyer (3)

So if you have some spare time and want to help preparing a great Mailnag release, please pick up a task that suits your skills. :-)

Image part with Gnome DE.. does it mean that it will have top icon and bottom ones? Or it's custom thing? I thought the design has went the way to bottom notification center.
