Notmuch 0.16 (2013-08-03)
Support for delivering messages to Maildir
There is a new command
insert that adds a message to a Maildir
folder and notmuch index.
notmuch count --batch option
notmuch count now supports batch operations similar to
tag. This is mostly an optimization for remote notmuch usage.
notmuch tag option to remove all tags from matching messages
notmuch tag --remove-all option has been added to remove all tags
from matching messages. This can be combined with adding new tags,
resulting in setting (rather than modifying) the tags of the
Decrypting commands explicitly expect a gpg-agent
notmuch show and
notmuch reply has only ever
worked with a functioning gpg-agent. This is now made explicit in
code and documentation. The functional change is that it's now
possible to have gpg-agent running, but gpg "use-agent"
configuration option disabled, not forcing the user to use the agent
Configuration file saves follow symbolic links
The notmuch commands that save the configuration file now follow symbolic links instead of overwrite them.
Top level option to specify configuration file
It's now possible to specify the configuration file to use on the
command line using the
notmuch --config=FILE option.
Bash command-line completion
The notmuch command-line completion support for the bash shell has
been rewritten. Supported completions include all the notmuch
commands, command-line arguments, values for keyword arguments,
search prefixes (such as "subject:" or "from:") in all commands that
use search terms, tags after + and - in
notmuch tag, tags after
"tag:" prefix, user's email addresses after "from:" and "to:"
prefixes, and config options (and some config option values) in
notmuch config. The new completion support depends on the
Deprecated commands "part" and "search-tags" are removed.
New keymap to view/save parts; removed s/v/o/| part button bindings
The commands to view, save, and open MIME parts are now prefixed with "." (". s" to save, ". v" to view, etc) and can be invoked with point anywhere in a part, unlike the old commands, which were restricted to part buttons. The old "s"/"v"/"o"/"|" commands on part buttons have been removed since they clashed with other bindings (notably "s" for search!) and could not be invoked when there was no part button. The new, prefixed bindings appear in show's help, so you no longer have to memorize them.
Default part save directory is now
Previously, notmuch offered to save parts and attachments to a mix
This has been standardized on
Key bindings for next/previous thread
Show view has new key bindings M-n and M-p to move to the next and previous thread in the search results.
Better handling of errors in search buffers
Instead of interleaving errors in search result buffers, search mode now reports errors in the minibuffer.
Faster search and show
Communication between Emacs and the notmuch CLI is now more efficient because it uses the CLI's S-expression support. As a result, search mode should now fill search buffers faster and threads should show faster.
No Emacs 22 support
The Emacs 22 support added late 2010 was sufficient only for a short period of time. After being incomplete for roughly 2 years the code in question was now removed from this release.
The vim based front-end has been replaced with a new one that uses the Ruby bindings. The old font-end is available in the contrib subfolder.
