Geary 44 Email App for Linux Adds Two Nifty Enhancements

Geary 44 sounds like an interesting release with useful changes.

Geary is one of the best email clients for Linux that has been receiving some pretty decent updates over the years.

It's an email application under the GNOME project that has been tailored for the GNOME desktop (not limited to), with support for the IMAP and SMTP protocols that allow it to integrate neatly with most webmail services.

A few days back, a new version released with key improvements. Let's take a quick look at those.

🆕 Geary 44: What's New?

Geary 44 is a relatively minor release with two significant additions. First is the reworked headerbar, and second is the redesigned conversation list.

A new 'select' button has been added to the header bar near the search button, and the position of the message view toolbar icons has been changed.

When we last looked at Geary, it had a different conversation list layout. But now, the redesigned conversation list just makes the mail reading experience so much better.

You know, this makes me wonder how this release of Geary will fare against the upcoming redesign of Thunderbird. You may have to make some choices, eh? 🤩
