Geary 0.4.3 Released, With Two Fixes

Yorba has released Geary 0.4.3, an update of our IMAP email client. This update features two fixes:


– Fix “squished” conversation list when used with certain themes
– Compile-time support for WebKitGTK 2.0

In particular, the first problem affects users of Mint 16 Cinnamon. Those users should upgrade to Geary 0.4.3 to avoid this display problem.

The tarball for the Geary 0.4.3 is available here

Ubuntu users (including Mint) can install the upgrade at Yorba’s PPA:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yorba/ppa
The Yorba PPA is maintained by the Yorba Foundation and home to the Shotwell Photo Manager, the Geary email client, and gexiv2 (a GObject wrapper for the Exiv2 metadata library).

Note that neither of the above problems should affect users of the recent 0.4 backport to Precise/Luna.
