The future Geary

And yes, Geary will be landing in 0.2 soon, only time will tell

As i predict, 0.2 will bring more and more fans towards Geary as some of the essential features come along

In Geary 0.1, it lacks of a few features that a normal email client has and it also have several persistent bugs such as Geary not fetching the email 

Lest looks at a few new features in the upcoming release

Notifications !  Not sure if you're same like me, I always keep my Gmail tab open in Chrome as I will be alerted with any new email notification. And now, there's no need to as Geary will handle it pretty nicely

When you receive mail, it will alert you with a pop sound and a highlighted messaging menu with number of emails unread

Not gonna miss any emails !

Rich text formatting is here ! Now you can highlight your sentences with colors, change the fonts and also alignments, pretty handy

It is not recommended for you to install from this ppa as it consist an unstable build of Shotwell as well. if you are brave enough to test the daily build of Geary, here's how

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/daily-builds
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade / sudo apt-get install geary (if you have not previously install Geary)
