Lumail now uses GMime

Sunday, 11 August 2013

A hectic day and now we use GMime for all MIME-fu.

This has allowed me to decode headers correctly, setup MIME parts properly in outgoing mails with attachments, and cleanup the code-base.

The next release of Lumail will contain basically just this change, as it is pretty drastic. But first I need to work out how to make binaries for Squeeze compiled against the back-ported version of gmime-2.6.x.

(Previously we used libmimetic. Which was awesome in its way, but caused me some pain with RFC 2047 header-decoding.)
