Last week in Kube

“Kube is a modern communication and collaboration client built with QtQuick on top of a high performance, low resource usage core. It provides online and offline access to all your mail, contacts, calendars, notes, todo’s and more. With a strong focus on usability, the team works with designers and UX experts from the ground up, to build a product that is not only visually appealing but also a joy to use.”

  • WebEngineProfile no longer blocks kube on exit. It looks like some webengine code ends up in a deadlock when installing a QWebEngineUrlRequestInterceptoron the default profile from the main thread. It was solved by creating a custom WebEngineProfile as custom QML element.
  • Fixed scrolling issue where a slow loading mail would result in the positioning code interfering with user scrolling. This fixes email positioning in the conversation view.
  • Made scrollbars always visible. This is to help people that use the mouse to grab the scrollbar handle for scrolling.
  • Fixed some account config corner cases and improved user feedback when saving changes.
  • Large CMake cleanup to remove duplication and to clarify what settings we set.
  • Made sure all tests pass again, cleaned up testsuite.
  • Fixed encoding issue when replying to mail that would mangle some utf-8 chars.
  • Fixed font sizes so the same size is applied throughout the application. This resolves some scaling issues we had on some devices.
  • Changed connected/disconnected detection so resources that have no known status yet turn up as disconnected.

    1. No, it’s going to be an alternative that you could even use alongside with kmail. But you can of course not use akonadi/kmail at all and use kube instead as it is completely independent.

  1. none of the posts nor the kube website give information on the type of email accounts supported i can figure it supportes imap from the required packages but i dont know if it supports pop3 or anything else
