Shotwell developers aim to solve Linux’s e-mail problems

Filed under
Software

The developers behind the Shotwell photo manager for Linux-based operating systems are setting their sights on a weak spot of the Linux desktop: e-mail.

Yorba, the creator of Shotwell, has turned to crowdfunding site Indiegogo in an attempt to raise $100,000 toward the e-mail client, named "Geary." After two days, Yorba has raised about $8,000.

Geary has been under development since 2011, but Yorba is hoping to take it up a few notches. An extremely early version of Geary is available now.
