Last week in Kube

  • Upgraded the flatpak to qt 5.14 (hoping to get my hands on the new markdown support), which resulted in discovering a regression for QSet properties.
  • The flatpak now employs a patch so the pinentry tool just uses libsecret as cache, which means if you run gnome-keyring you get password-less logins (and if somebody is going to finish ksecretservice that would of course work too). I have also looked into getting access to the host gpg-agent (which seems like the better solution), but that effort is currently stuck due to a missing feature in bubblewrap and because it’s not entirely clear if this will really be the way to go forward. Feel free to weigh in.
  • Fixed a bunch of rendering issues in invitations and calendar.

  1. This is almost my daily driver with a Kolab Now account πŸ™‚

    One thing stopping me however – the composer and it’s adding of ‘arrows’ to emails when replying.

    Besides that, all else is perfect, the one thing which would be nice is (if in the sent folder) these emails weren’t collapsed by default and when there to also be able to see other messages as part of the thread (XCONVERSATIONS) as per other folders.

    Is the plan to go back and complete the addressbook or to work on email stuff like signatures, folder management?

    Keep up the great work
