In trying to get notmuch to grow up a little bit, I've just added a version number (0.1 initially) and have started doing releases. My idea for now is to have 2-part versions for releases, and 3-part versions to indicate intermediate states within git.
For example, I just released notmuch 0.1, current git clone will create notmuch 0.1.1, and the next anticipated release will be 0.2. The first release announcement is below, with very thin release notes. I hope to have better release announcements in the future. For this, I'll need the help of all contributors. Here's my request: When you submit a patch adding a new feature to notmuch, please include with it an edit to the NEWS file adding a sentence or paragraph to the top of that file. Thanks, and have fun out there. -Carl Where to obtain notmuch 0.1 =========================== http://notmuchmail.org/releases/notmuch-0.1.tar.gz Which can be verified with: http://notmuchmail.org/releases/notmuch-0.1.tar.gz.sha1 fa390b7e652bebbdd5c178a60d8056e662df03ba notmuch-0.1.tar.gz http://notmuchmail.org/releases/notmuch-0.1.tar.gz.sha1.asc (signed by Carl Worth) What's new in notmuch 0.1 ========================= This is the first release of the notmuch mail system. It includes the libnotmuch library, the notmuch command-line interface, and an emacs-based interface to notmuch. Note: Notmuch will work best with Xapian 1.0.18 (or later) or Xapian 1.1.4 (or later). Previous versions of Xapian (whether 1.0 or 1.1) had a performance bug that made notmuch very slow when modifying tags. This would cause distracting pauses when reading mail while notmuch would wait for Xapian when removing the "inbox" and "unread" tags from messages in a thread. What is notmuch =============== Notmuch is a system for indexing, searching, reading, and tagging large collections of email messages in maildir or mh format. It uses the Xapian library to provide fast, full-text search with a convenient search syntax.
