Delays with Epyrus releases lately.

Unread post by athenian200 » 2024-07-10, 05:37

I feel like I should address this recent gap in Epyrus releases, and reassure everyone that I don't intend to have this be a typical thing. The issue is that I was in school for the first half of the year, and I was trying to catch up with an old friend that I am kind of saying goodbye to forever, because her and her husband are moving away to start a family, and we likely won't see each other again. Finally, what little time I have spent with Epyrus has been devoted to researching the OAuth2 issue, and I've been hitting a wall with it because things were in flux with lots of outdated documentation and so many things changing on the backends of various e-mail providers at the same time.

Now that all that's out of the way, I will probably have a lot more time for Epyrus. Though, to be honest, one of the issues I have is that I am not very self-disciplined or good at managing my time, which is kind of a problem for me in real life as well. I have a tendency to work on things like this in fits and starts when the mood strikes me, rather than just naturally being good at scheduling my time and working on it a little bit here and there so I can do a release.

While I haven't had a chance to address any bugs, there have been enough platform changes and such that I felt a point release was needed just for security updates at this point. Hopefully everyone is still on board and fine with this long hiatus that I never really announced.
"The Athenians, however, represent the unity of these opposites; in them, mind or spirit has emerged from the Theban subjectivity without losing itself in the Spartan objectivity of ethical life. With the Athenians, the rights of the State and of the individual found as perfect a union as was possible at all at the level of the Greek spirit." -- Hegel's philosophy of Mind

Thanks for the status report. IMHO you have your priorities as they ought to be, and unless/until you accept direct donations toward Epyrus development you don't owe anything other than clear communication about the project.

You're doing fine. Thanks for your effort and - for me at least - the best email client around.

I've just updated to 2.1.3. I used the 64-bit installer for my Lenovo P520 running Windows Pro 10 22H2.

The installation was smooth, and everything appears to be working fine.

Thanks again for your good work.
