  * Made the default width of the mail filter editing dialog larger.

  * Removed the development warning at startup.  (Ettore)

  * Better alarm daemon activation.

  * Notification of calendar query errors.

  * Added status messages for all operations.

    folder just by typing its name and hitting Enter (instead of
    using the arrows or the mouse).

  * You can now specify your default mail, calendar, tasks and
    contacts folders.  The shortcuts in the shortcut bar will always
    point to the default folder; so for example if you have an IMAP
    account you can specify that the INBOX on the IMAP account is
    default and clicking on the Inbox icon on the shortcut bar will
    take you to the INBOX on the IMAP account.

  * Fonts for displaying of HTML mail can now be configured from
    within Evolution (instead of having to use GNOME Control

    module development.

  * You now can drop objects (eg. mail messages, appointments)
    directly to the folders on the shortcut bar (in 1.0.x, you could
    only drop them in the folder folder bar).

    which calendar to update, and if its for an existing appointment
    the folder is automatically detected

  * Fixed wombat/addressbook crashes dealing with autocompletion, it
    should be much more stable now.

  * Categories on LDAP are now stored using a multivalued attribute
    (category) instead of a comma separated list (categories), so
    searches on categories in ldap actually work.  The old attribute
    is deprecated and should not be used.

  * Standardized some of the static properties of addressbooks, and
    removed some local addressbook logic from the frontend.

  * When editing contacts from the composer entries (To:, CC:), pop
    up the right kind of editor based on the contact type.

  * Much improved LDAP backend responsiveness and performance.

* Mail

  - New, much faster indexing engine.  This results in faster mail
    incorporation, faster mail display, and faster searches.
    Overall, the new engine should work much better for larger
    folders, and take considerably less space on the disk.

  - Faster POP3 download, using the server's pipeline extensions if

  - If you type multiple words in the search bar for the
    "... Contains" rules, Evolution will search messages that
    contain all of the words you specified, in any order.

  - More consistent search results for indexed, non-indexed and
    remote folders.

  - UTF8 (Unicode) used for all searches, even with IMAP servers.

  - It is now possible to mark messages for follow-up and other
    flags.  It is also possible to change the color in which a
    specific message is displayed in the mail list.

  - When the message list is sorted by a certain field, it is possible
    to jump to the first item in the list that matches a certain
    string by just typing the first few characters.

  - Filters are now updated automatically when the destination folder
    gets moved or removed.

  - A new filter rule allows you to pipe mail through an external
    process to find out whether or not to filter it.

  - You can now specify which folders get synced when switching to
    offline mode.

  - All previously read messages are automatically downloaded for
    offline use.

  - Offline state is preserved between sessions.  Generally, offline
    mode is more stable and complete.

  - STARTTLS support for POP, SMTP and IMAP has been added.

  - IMAP can now handle folder names containing &, -, and UTF-8

  - You can have all of your mail Auto-Cc:ed or auto-Bcc:ed to a
    specified set of recipients.

  - SMTP error reporting has been improved.

  - Much improved GnuPG support.  Better pgp/mime interoperability.

  - Improved support for external Maildir, MH, and mailbox folders,
    and trees of folders.  Internally they share more code now and
    are easier to maintain.

  - External mailbox folders can interoperate with pine/mutt/elm
    status flags directly (at slightly performance penalty).  See
    options on the "spool" provider.

  - Many IMAP related bugs fixed.  IMAP now passes current folder
    regression tests.

  - IMAP body search results are now cached.  Vastly improving
    body search vFolder performance with IMAP sources.

  - Optional IPv6 support.

  - Progress bar added to subscribe dialogue.

  - Camel's multithread safe object system streamlined and
    improved.  Many other internal cleanups inside Camel.

  - vFolders can now have an additional column which shows the
    original location of the message.  Particularly useful for Trash

  - New messages dont "upset" the thread view as much, if no sorting
    is used.

  - Various vFolder tweaks and fixes.

  - Remote inline HTML images are now downloaded incrementally using
    libsoup and are fully cancellable.

  - Improved quotation display for format=flowed messages.

* Mail Composer

  - You can now edit a set of signatures within Evolution, and pick
    which signature you want when composing a message.

  - Handling of replies has been improved; in particular, you can
    now paste any text as a quotation, and quotation formatting is
    preserved when switching between HTML and non-HTML mode.

  - Evolution can now generate graphical smileys automatically as
    you type.

  - Quotation logic has been improved, rewrapping long lines in
    replies now preserves quotation marks.

  - Multiple simulataneous language support in the spell checker.

  - Cut & Paste support for html between netscape/mozilla/evolution.
