A new improved version of MailTags is out!
For me, the stand-out new feature in MailTags 1.2.2 is mouseless tagging.
A new shortcut “Tag this message” (Command-Control-T) switches focus to the MailTags pane and allows you to tab through its fields, making tagging more efficient and speedy than ever before.
But there’s more. A new Toolbar icon “Show Tags” (available from the Customize Toolbar option) opens and closes the MailTags pane and a new MailTags column displays a small flag next to each message with MailTags information. The tag in the message area looks more handsome, having received a Web 2.0 makeover.
An option to show or hide the message areaâ€™s MailTag icon has been added to the Preferences pane.
Also very welcome is a new feature which allows you to set the contents of a MailTags Note as the subject line of an email. Simply check the box under the Note and the email gets a new clearer, more useful, more whatever-you-like subject line in italics:
Easy editing of subject lines in Mail.app has arrived. (These “subject lines” won’t work as subjects in Mail.app searches, but you will still find them as Notes).
The plugin is now wrapped in a new Firestorm installer and will place the Spotlight plugin in your user directory instead of the System Library folder.
A few small niggles have been fixed—clearing all tags now always clears all tags and several links in the localisations have been ironed out. Speaking of which, MailTags now also talks Swedish.
MailTags 1.2.2 will continue to be available although Scott’s attention is now turning to the development of MailTags 2.0, which offers full IMAP support by encoding MailTags info in an X-Header and a flood of other advanced project management goodies.
You can read more about the MailTags 2.0 beta and sign up to test it on Scott’s new web site.
MailTags already puts more productivity muscle into Mail.app than anything else. It’s the must-have plugin for Mail.app users who are serious about email. It’s the duck’s guts, the cat’s whiskers, the undisputed king of Mail.app plugins. And it’s going to get even better.
MailTags 2.0 will not be donation-ware. It will be shareware. But users who make the suggested donation of USD 20 for MailTags 1.2.2 will automatically be upgraded to MailTags 2.0 when it appears.
You can get MailTags 1.2.2 from Scott’s revamped web site , where you will also find a new MailTags support forum .
