   * FACE header and Contact image in preview pane
 Evolution has support to attach FACE header while sending e-mails and
 extract the header while receiving and show it in the preview pane.

How can I tell evolution to use a particular image when I send emails? I
don't see this in the preferences.
   Currently you can do it from Insert-Face in the composer window. It was
   supposed to have a preferences as part of plugin configuration. But I
   dont think it made it to svn.
   Sankar, am I right?
  Yes. You are.
  You need to use Inset-Face in the composer window. 
  A few more things are still pending for this plugin. User should be able
  to set a photo from plugin-configure. The plugin should also support
  resizing the photo by itself. I did some of these changes but missed the
  freeze dead-line. So all these can go only after branching for Evo-2.14
  is done.
 It seems obvious to me that this should be a per-account preference, or
 maybe it should be in the GNOME About Me control panel. As it is, it
 doesn't seem worth mentioning in the release notes, because it's not
 very usable if I have to specify an image file for each email that I
 send. Does that seem fair? 

Only the first time the user selects Insert Face he will be prompted
for an image. On subsequent times, the old selected image itself is

However, I accept that it is not so user-friendly at the moment. So I am
okay to not mention it in the release-notes.

  I was not aware of the ~/.face thing. I will try to use it in the next
  release (after the freeze is over).

   Does this mean that evolution no longer asks the user for their

Currently evolution maintains its own timezone files. For every change
in the zonefino, we would need to update the timezone's maintained. Now
with the system timezone integration, we pickup the timezones from the
system, this update from evolution is not required. Evolution would pick
the latest timezone's from the system. There are no user-noticeable
