2015-04-16 Update:

Sadly Hastymail2 is no longer being maintained. Happily this is because we are working on a new web-based E-mail client, called Cypht. If you need support your best bet is the #hastymail IRC channel at freenode. Thanks to everyone who contributed to and supported this project!

Happy New Year

   The idea of rewriting Hastymail starting brewing about this time last year. I was working on a web application framework in PHP and thought it would be possible to pull out some of the inner workings of the original software and re-arrange it within a new design. Taking the time to do the work became a New Years resolution actually, and one I can honestly say I did my best to follow through on (which is unusual for me).

   One year later we are near a stable release, support has been great, and SVN has over 25 thousand lines of PHP. The original codebase was over 40 thousand lines, but the feature sets differ so comparing the two is not entirely accurate. I do think that the new design is more compact and easier to maintain however. Having just put out a release we are in the top 500 most active projects at SourceForge which is neat, except when you have been checking the same statistics on a regular basis for many years and realize they are completely unreliable (seriously). There are 58 or so completed bug reports in the tracker with the remaining ones being mostly feature requests, and there are over 100 posts in the forums. Considering we did not start releasing code until half way through the year I am really happy with how far things have come.

   It really has been a lot of fun working on the project, and their are many people to thank. To everyone who has contributed themes, translations, code, suggestions, feedback, bug reports, hosting, or financial assistance I offer you my sincerest gratitude for your support of the project. Your contributions make Hastymail better!

   I am excited about the upcoming year and the future for Hastymail. The Gallery page has been updated with some new images showing off the themes available with the RC3 release, and I foresee a forth release candidate coming out in January.

Happy New Year Everyone!
