Well, after weeks of development, GNUMail.app 1.0.0 and
Pantomime 1.0.2 are finally out! This is a great step that
has been achieved for the projects and for GNUstep.
Well, this weekend was quite busy for me! I worked a lot on
GNUMail.app and Pantomime in order to get the next big
release ready for next week. I've also updated the Apple Mac
OS X port.
You can see a screenshot of the GNUstep version here.

Lots of new features were added this weekend. Look at the ChangeLog file of both projects in order to know what has changed exactly :-)
Tonight I've been working on SASL support for the SMTP code in Pantomime. I've added support for SMTP AUTH for PLAIN, LOGIN and CRAM-MD5 SASL authentication mechanisms. I've also fixed some bugs in GNUMail.app.
Hi. Today it was a good day for work. I was kinda productive for payware oriented development. When I got home, I cooked a nice dinner and I got my hands back in Pantomime. I've mostly worked on non-blocking I/O for read/write operations. It works well. I should finish the code for exception handling tomorrow.
Today it has been a busy day. I've mainly refactored most of the Preferences panel of GNUMail.app to make things more elegant (especially related to the UI). I've also fixed some bugs and implemented new features. Oh well, everything is on the CVS server.
Well, I'm slowly preparing the release of GNUMail.app 1.0.0 and Pantomime 1.0.2. It features major enhancements like new features, speed and stability improvements and more. I will synchronize my release with Adam (ie., with the release of GNUstep GUI/XGPS 0.7.6).
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
