What's new in notmuch 0.12

Command-Line Interface

Reply to sender

  "notmuch reply" has gained the ability to create a reply template
  for replying just to the sender of the message, in addition to reply
  to all. The feature is available through the new command line option

Mail store folder/file ignore

   A new configuration option, `new.ignore`, lets users specify a
   ;-separated list of file and directory names that will not be
   searched for messages by "notmuch new".

   NOTE: *Every* file/directory that goes by one of those names will
   be ignored, independent of its depth/location in the mail store.

Unified help and manual pages

   The notmuch help command now runs man for the appropriate page.  If
   you install notmuch somewhere "unusual", you may need to update

Manual page for notmuch configuration options

  The notmuch CLI configuration file options are now documented in the
  notmuch-config(1) manual page in addition to the configuration file

Emacs Interface

Reply to sender

  The Emacs interface has, with the new CLI support, gained the
  ability to reply to sender in addition to reply to all. In both show
  and search modes, 'r' has been bound to reply to sender, replacing
  reply to all, which now has key binding 'R'.

More flexible and consistent tagging operations

  All tagging operations ("+", "-", "*") now accept multiple tags with
  "+" or "-" prefix, like "*" operation in notmuch-search view before.

  "*" operation (`notmuch-show-tag-all') is now available in
  notmuch-show view.

  `Notmuch-show-{add,remove}-tag' functions no longer accept tag
  argument, `notmuch-show-tag-message' should be used instead.  Custom
  bindings using these functions should be updated, e.g.:

    (notmuch-show-remove-tag "unread")

  should be changed to:

    (notmuch-show-tag-message "-unread")

Refreshing the show view ('=' by default) no longer opens or closes messages

  To get the old behavior of putting messages back in their initial
  opened/closed state, use a prefix argument, e.g., C-u =.

Attachment buttons can be used to view or save attachments.

  When the cursor is on an attachment button the key 's' can be used
  to save the attachment, the key 'v' to view the attachment in the
  default mailcap application, and the key 'o' prompts the user for an
  application to use to open the attachment. By default Enter or mouse
  button 1 saves the attachment but this is customisable (option
  Notmuch Show Part Button Default Action).

New functions

  `notmuch-show-stash-mlarchive-link{,-and-go}' allow stashing and
  optionally visiting a URI to the current message at one of a number
  of Mailing List Archives.

Fix MML tag quoting in replies

  The MML tag quoting fix of 0.11.1 unintentionally quoted tags
  inserted in `message-setup-hook'. Quoting is now limited to the
  cited message.

Show view archiving key binding changes

  The show view archiving key bindings 'a' and 'x' now remove the
  "inbox" tag from the current message only (instead of thread), and
  move to the next message. At the last message, 'a' proceeds to the
  next thread in search results, and 'x' returns to search
  results. The thread archiving functions are now available in 'A' and

Support text/calendar MIME type

  The text/calendar MIME type is now supported in addition to

Generate inline patch fake attachment file names from message subject

  Use the message subject to generate file names for the inline patch
  fake attachments. The names are now similar to the ones generated by
  'git format-patch' instead of just "inline patch". See "Notmuch Show
  Insert Text/Plain Hook" in the notmuch customize interface.

Enable `notmuch-search-line-faces' by default

  Make the `notmuch-search-line-faces' functionality more discoverable
  for new users by showing "unread" messages bold and "flagged"
  messages blue by default in the search view.

Printing Support

  notmuch-show mode now has simple printing support, bound to '#' by
  default. You can customize the variable notmuch-print-mechanism.

Library changes

New functions

  notmuch_query_add_tag_exclude supports the new tag exclusion

Python bindings changes

Python 3.2 compatibility

  The python bindings are now compatible with both python 2.5+ and 3.2.

Added missing unicode conversions

  Python strings have to be encoded to and decoded from utf-8 when
  calling libnotmuch functions. Porting the bindings to python 3.2
  revealed a few function calls that were missing these conversions.

Build fixes

Compatibility with GMime 2.6

  It is now possible to build notmuch against both GMime 2.4 and 2.6.
  However, a bug in GMime 2.6 before 2.6.5 causes notmuch not to
  report signatures where the signer key is unavailable (GNOME bug
  668085).  For compatibility with GMime 2.4's tolerance of "From "
  headers we require GMime 2.6 >= 2.6.7.

What is notmuch
Notmuch is a system for indexing, searching, reading, and tagging
large collections of email messages in maildir or mh format. It uses
the Xapian library to provide fast, full-text search with a convenient
search syntax.
