E-Mail App Geary Gets New Look, New Features

Filed under
Software

Alongside an update to photo utility Shotwell comes a new version of Geary – the popular open-source desktop e-mail app. It’s the first release by Yorba, the team behind the client, since it failed to make its $100,000 crowdfunding goal back in April.

The lightweight app, a firm favourite of mine for a long time, gains a number of new features in today’s update, many of which have long been requested.

Geary now has per-account searching, auto-saving of draft e-mails and a built-in security tool that checks outgoing links for malicious content.
