In the process of development of the new version we’ve continued fixing the bugs that came up in The Bat! 5.0.8. The majority of changes brought into The Bat! are meant to resolve these problems, but there’s also a series of new features – it is now possible to set CC and BCC fields when redirecting messages, "Message | Edit as New" action added etc. The work on solving other problems is continued.
The complete list of improvements:
[+] It is now possible to set CC and BCC fields when redirecting messages
[+] "Message|Edit as New" action
[+] Filter Logging pane in the Re-filtering dialogue
[+] IMAP. "Do not use IDLE command" option added
[+] Smart algorithm to replace slash characters in attached file names opened for viewing by external applications. Slashes around digits are replaced to dashes, other slashes to underscores.
[+] Added support for the Armenian language
[*] Removed debug logging for CSAPI spelling engine
[*] Possibility to choose whether the tab filtering should replace or to be added to the current message list filter
[*] More debug messages if The Bat! is run with "/STARTUP_TIMING_LOG" command line option, to help find the problem of lockup after the "SetupTokenIfVoyager" event
[*] (#0007326) Preview button for Mail Ticker do not work (renamed to Apply)
[*] Filtering actions are now called in different way so unexpected behaviour should be avoided
[*] IMAP. Don't raise exception when trying to get contents of expunged message. Just finish this task.
