Gnome just released version 2.2 of its desktop environment. Whilst Gnome's release schedule is every 6 months, this new version comes with a lot of improvements already. I cannot wait for what they will have next year. Let's take a brief look at what are in store for us in 2.2.
One of the features of the new Evolution is the "attachment detector". What it does is it scans the message text for the word "attachment" (or other related words) and checks if there is a file attached to the e-mail before it gets sent. If there is none, the app will prompt the user about the absence of the attachment.
Whilst this may be a cool feature, I may just eventually disable it. Why? It may be a bit annoying specially when you do not have control over the keywords. However, maybe it can be extended to include curse word filtering – make you think twice before sending that angry e-mail. Now THAT will surely be helpful to me! Haha.
Evolution now includes a Backup/Restore function. I am sure that most people will use this but wouldn't it be better if we can import/export it to a SQL database? Now, that functionality would be great. What do you think?
Next, we look at Image Viewing…
