TheBat! 4.07 released
« on: February 08, 2008, 12:17:27 PM »
TheBat! 4.07 is now available. I think this is the first public release in the 4.x line.

As we already knew, there are no revolutionary changes in this version, which is probably a good thing.

I'd like to be able to use it as it does have some nice features, but the completely broken/gimped IMAP support once again had me uninstall it shortly after setting up my first account.

Program kept crashing every time I tried to download mail. Repaired, removed, installed from scratch etc etc & still kept crashing.

Returned to 3.99 and no problems.

I actually tried TB! 4.07 imap/gmail this morning . . . after about 30 seconds, was finished.  RIT seems to take 1 step forward and two steps back every time they get near IMAP. I've never been remotely satisfied with TB/IMAP.

With my attachment to gmail . . . using TB as my main client is looking more unlikely with each passing day.

That said, I was a bit startled/pleased this morning when I found e-mails from the RIT bug tracker, bugs I'd submitted to the DB a couple years ago have been fixed and closed.  I'd forgotten all about them, it was sort of like finding a twenty dollar bill folded away in my pocket from who-knows-when.

Hmmm, new releases that fast? Not a good sign.

And ugh, from the whatsnew.txt:

# Headers and free space in windows have nice gradient background;
# Buttons in the header filed also look much nicer because they also support gradients;

First they add the useless draggable toolbars, and now even more useless background gradients? I think I'll move to Thunderbird instead >_<

That's not good, after the very solid 3.99. In the post I've linked to above mouser was reporting no significant problems with 4.0 alpha - "a tiny bit buggy" does not describe your experience at all. I'll definitely sit back and watch some more before I jump.
