CLAWS MAIL RELEASE NOTES
Claws Mail is a GTK+ based, user-friendly, lightweight, and fast
Version 4.0.0 is the initial GTK+ 3 release.
Version 3.18.0 is the GTK+ 2 release.
Notes for this release:
If you are upgrading from the GTK+ 2 version to the GTK+ 3 version of
Claws Mail, you will need to reload any plugins that you want to use.
New in this release:
* Support for the OAuth2 authorisation protocol has been added for
IMAP, POP and SMTP using custom, user-generated client IDs.
OAuth2 preferences are found in the Account Preferences on the
Receive page (for POP: Authenticate before POP connection, for
IMAP: Authentication method); the Send page (SMTP authentication:
Authentication method); and on a dedicated OAuth2 page.
* The option 'Save (X-)Face in address book if possible' has been
added to the /Message View/Text Options preferences page.
Previously the (X-)Face would be saved automatically, therefore
this option is turned on by default.
* The Image Viewer has been reworked. New options have been added to
/Message View/Image Viewer: when resizing images, either fit the
image width or fit the image height to the available space.
Fitting the image height is the default. Regardless of this
setting, when displaying images inline they will fit the height.
When displaying an image, left-clicking the image will toggle
between full size and reduced size; right-clicking will toggle
between fitting the height and fitting the width.
* When re-editing a saved message, it is now possible to use
