General bug fixes
Maildir tag synchronization
Maildir flag-to-tag synchronization now applies only to messages in maildir-like directory structures. Previously, it applied to any message that had a maildir "info" part, which meant it could incorrectly synchronize tags for non-maildir messages, while at the same time failing to synchronize tags for newly received maildir messages (typically causing new messages to not receive the "unread" tag).
The deprecated positional output file argument to
notmuch dump has
been replaced with an
--output option. The input file positional
notmuch restore has been replaced with an
option for consistency with dump. These changes simplify the syntax
of dump/restore options and make them more consistent with other
Search results now get re-colored when tags are updated
The formatting of tags in search results can now be customized
Previously, attempting to change the format of tags in
notmuch-search-result-format would usually break tagging from
search-mode. We no longer make assumptions about the format.
Experimental support for multi-line search result formats
It is now possible to embed newlines in
notmuch-search-result-format to make individual search results
span multiple lines.
Next/previous in search and show now move by boundaries
All "next" and "previous" commands in the search and show modes now move to the next/previous result or message boundary. This doesn't change the behavior of "next", but "previous" commands will first move to the beginning of the current result or message if point is inside the result or message.
Search now uses the JSON format internally
This should address problems with unusual characters in authors and subject lines that could confuse the old text-based search parser.
The date shown in search results is no longer padded before applying user-specified formatting
Previously, the date in the search results was padded to fixed width
before being formatted with
notmuch-search-result-format. It is
no longer padded. The default format has been updated, but if
you've customized this variable, you may have to change your date
"%s " to
The thread-id for the
target-thread argument for
now be supplied without the "thread:" prefix.
