Sylpheed 3.0beta1 has been released.


Changes from 2.7.1:

    * Multi-threading was introduced. This will reduce the situation
      where user actions are blocked.
      (can be disabled by --disable-threads configure option)
    * Win32: network connection runs on another thread now to prevent
      blocking of the user interface.
    * Execution of external commands (such as bsfilter) on filtering
      will not block the user interface anymore.
    * The major part of IMAP protocol communication runs on another
      thread to prevent blocking of the user interface.
    * The query search is executed on another thread.
    * LibSylph is (almost) thread-safe now.
    * Summary caches are updated on the fly (on
      receive/move/copy/delete). This improves the performance of
      opening folders with many new messages.
    * Progress is displayed while scanning folders.
    * The user interface of address book was rewritten using the new
      API (GtkTreeView). This will reduce the glitches in the older
    * Included Sylpheed FAQ (English) was updated.
    * Some bugfixes are made.

# A freeze bug that occurs when the dialog open by update check was
# found. Please do not do update check until it will be fixed at the
# next version.
