my name is nobody
It's great to see the improvements in the modest e-mail client. For most people, there should be little reason still to use the old email client. Great thanks to all involved -- my friends from Spain, Belgium, Germany and elsewhere; Vivek, Mox, and all users, contributors etc. It's good to mention contributors sometimes; I found the CNN Money-article about the N810 development team a bit off-balance in that respect - it would have been nice to include some people who write the software, too.
Anyway, back to modest. I'm sure that someone, somewhere is missing some feature that is essential to them. While usability and feature-richness are not necessarily conflicting, in practice they often are (I know, I'm a mutt-user!) But, no excuses -- in my (slightly biased) opinion, it's a nice little e-mail client and a great improvement. And with the code being open and free, there is nothing stopping people from firing up their favorite text editor and start hacking on their missing pet feature.
My personal role in the modest-project will diminish a bit. I'll be slaying some new dragons - still Nokia, open source, yadayada; I'll write a bit more about that in the near future. I feel that modest will continue its life in trusted hands, and of course I'll keep an eye on that ;-)
