Hi all,

Geary 3.38.0 has been released! This is a new feature release that rolls up six months of new features, bug fixes, server compatibility improvements, and translations in over 20 languages for both the interface and the online help manual, all contributed by the community.

This new release adds support for plugins, optional features that can be switched on in Geary, and comes with a number of plugins out of the box, including playing a sound when email is sent, for creating email templates and for creating mail-outs by mail merge with a spreadsheet (CSV) file. Plugins can be switched on by opening the Preferences window from the app menu and selecting the Plugins page. More plugins will be added in future releases, and more information about plugins in Geary is available here: <https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/Plugins>

Geary now uses the download preference for your accounts not only downloading email up to the selected date range, but also for cleaning up messages older than the range, ensuring your devices don't fill up with old email.

There has also been a number of smaller improvements, including showing contact photos from your desktop address book in notifications, reducing the number of network problems reported by automatically recovering from them, improved ordering of email folders, the Spam folder has been renamed to Junk, and more.

We are also working on a privacy policy for Geary, feedback on the current draft is welcome: <https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/PrivacyPolicy>

One final note, since Geary is following the GNOME desktop's release process, the next major feature release of Geary will be numbered 40. Watch out for it in another six month's time!

Geary 3.38 is now available for installation from https://flathub.org, and will be available in your favourite distribution as soon as it is packaged.
